Every 40-man roster player has appeared in a game for the Dodgers this season.

The Dodgers have boasted about their roster depth all season. Now, one statistic neatly sums up just how often they’ve needed it.

The Dodgers are one of two teams without a current 40-man roster player who hasn’t seen action in a major league game this season. The New York Mets are the other.

It’s not unusual for teams to exhaust their 40-man rosters in September, when active rosters expand from 25 to 40. To do so in mid-August is rare; the Dodgers achieved the feat when Rich Hill made his debut on Aug. 24.

Hat tip to Jason Martinez, found/director of content for rosterresource.com, for doing the research on this.
