Dodgers roster: Los Angeles 40-man dean Austin Barnes

The year 2023 arrives, a year of great turnover for the Dodgerswho already said goodbye to three lineup regulars from last season this off season as well as the team leader in innings pitched.

I ranked all current players based on continuous time on the roster. While the obvious choice for the Dodgers’ longest tenure is Clayton Kershaw, who debuted in 2008 and returns for a 16th season with the team, was a free agent each of the last two seasons. While players are on the 60-day disabled list or restricted list they don’t count against the 40-man roster limit, they were counted as continuous duty since they didn’t actually go anywhere.

What we’re looking for here are the players who have been tied to the Dodgers’ 40-man roster the longest.

That brings us to catcher Austin Barnes, who was acquired from the Marlins a massive three-team, eight-player trade that also involved the Angels during the December 2014 whirlwind winter meetings, a month at the front desk led by Andrew Friedman.

Julio Urías is the second tallest in the squad, making his major league debut on May 27, 2016. Despite his long time with the team, the lefty remains in the younger half of the roster, with only fifteen Dodgers younger than the 26-year-old Urías.

Only five Dodgers have been on the roster since before 2019. Twenty-eight players were added to the 40-man roster. after the team won the World Series in 2020or 25 players if you exclude Kershaw, Chris Taylor and Blake Treinen, each of whom tasted the air of free agency before returning to Los Angeles.

But as for the Dodger who has been on the 40-man roster the longest, without interruption, it’s Barnes. I suppose there is a reason they call him captain.
