Dodgers Finalize Opening Day Roster With Flurry Of Moves

The 2012 special event dates at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers ended their spring training on Wednesday afternoon with an 8-3 loss to the Angels, and after the game officially announced the opening day roster, as reported last night.

The Dodgers made these roster moves on Wednesday to finalize the roster:

  • Ted Lilly was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26.
  • Ivan DeJesus Jr. was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26. He strained his left oblique while swinging a bat during a game on March 17 and had to leave the game mid at-bat.
  • Ronald Belisario, who begins serving his 25-game suspension for violating the MLB Joint Drug Agreement on Thursday, was placed on the restricted list, which opens up a spot on the 40-man roster.
  • Tim Federowicz and Matt Angle were optioned to Triple A Albuquerque.
  • Scott Rice, Josh Fields, and Luis Cruz were all reassigned to Albuquerque (the terminology is different as they are not on the 40-man roster).
  • Nathan Eovaldi was optioned to Double A Chattanooga.
