With the departures of Hong-Chih Kuo (the left-hander hasn't signed anywhere else yet, but as of now he is no longer a member of the Dodgers) and Jonathan Broxton, the Dodgers have lost the players who have been with the organization the longest and were with the team the longest, respectively.
Kuo signed with the Dodgers way back on June 19, 1999 as an amateur free agent out of Taiwan, while Broxton made his major league debut on July 29, 2005. The new dean of the Dodgers is James Loney, who was drafted in the first round in 2002, and signed on June 11, nine days before international signee Ramon Troncoso. Loney also has the earliest Dodgers debut among players currently on the 40-man roster, making his major league debut on April 4, 2006. Andre Ethier has been with the major league club the longest continuously, staying put since his major league debut on May 2, 2006.
Here is the list of longest-tenured Dodgers, sorted by the date each player signed with the organization:
