Dodgers News: LA Makes It’s First Round of Roster Cuts

As the season draws near, the Dodgers have begun to trim down their roster in preparation of the beginning of the 2021 season. Most of those who were cut today, never had a great chance of cracking the roster. However, it wouldn’t be too far fetched to see them in the near future. In total, 28 players were cut and either optioned or reassigned to the team’s minor league camp where they will continue their extended spring training until their respective seasons which begin in early May. 

Catcher Keibert Ruiz, outfielders Luke Raley, and Zack Reks, as well as pitchers Alex Vesia, Gerardo Carrillo, Andre Jackson, and Edwin Uceta were all optioned to the minors since they are a part of the 40-man roster. Those who were non-roster invites were able to be reassigned down to the minors. Those players include:

After the recent cuts, the Major League Camp roster now sits at 45 players. A handful of players on this list were able to showcase the talent they pose. Guys like Michael Busch were impressing at the plate, while other such as James Outman were make highlight reel plays. They’ve definitely put their names out there for fans to know. While this first round of cuts was inevitable for this group of players, they’ve shown just how deep the Dodgers farm system is.
