Dodgers Announce Opening Day Roster

The Dodgers announced 96% of their opening day 25-man roster today, which technically can be changed before tomorrow's 4:05pm game in San Diego.  Here is the roster:

Catchers (2)
Russell Martin, Brad Ausmus

Infielders (6)
James Loney, Orlando Hudson, Rafael Furcal, Casey Blake, Mark Loretta, Blake DeWitt

Outfielders (5)
Manny Ramirez, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Juan Pierre, Delwyn Young

Starting Pitchers (5)
Hiroki Kuroda, Randy Wolf, Chad Billingsley, Clayton Kershaw, James McDonald

Relievers (6)
Jonathan Broxton, Hong Chih-Kuo, Guillermo Mota, Cory Wade, Claudio Vargas, Ramon Troncoso

Disabled List (1)
Jason Schmidt

This is a very weird announcement by the Dodgers, as Young and Vargas are expected to go on the DL.  Also, Will Ohman and Doug Mientkiewicz will almost assuredly be added before tomorrow's game, but a corresponding roster move will need to be made to accommodate one of those spots.  In other words, there's 27 hours to decide what those moves will be.
