Here’s how it shakes out, pending any last-minute changes:
Catchers (3): Austin Barnes, Yasmani Grandal, Carlos Ruiz
Infielders (5): Adrían González, Chase Utley, Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Charlie Culberson
Infielder-outfielder (1): Howie Kendrick
Outfielders (5): Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson, Josh Reddick, Andrew Toles, Andre Ethier
Starting pitchers (3): Clayton Kershaw, Rich Hill, Kenta Maeda
Swingmen (2): Ross Stripling, Julio Urías
Relief pitchers (6): Kenley Jansen, Joe Blanton, Pedro Báez, Grant Dayton, Luis Avilan, Josh Fields
Roberts added that some players not on the roster will travel with the team in case of injury. These include Rob Segedin, J.P. Howell and Alex Wood. Others will work out at Camelback Ranch in case of potential activation down the road.
