It's time for Dodger Playoff Baseball.
On Friday the Los Angeles Dodgers will embark on a new journey: the postseason.
After 104 wins, and finishing the marathon regular season with the best record in baseball, the Dodgers square off with the division rival Arizona Diamondbacks in a best-of-five NLDS series.
The team announced on Friday morning before Game 1, the 25-man roster that will battle the Snakes with a trip to the NLCS on the line.
Here are the players that made the cut for the postseason.

There are not a whole lot of surprises on the postseason roster, but the biggest of all is the inclusion of struggling pitcher Pedro Baez.
After a 2.95 ERA through the first half of the season, Baez eclipsed a 20.77 ERA in September and was booed repeatedly at home by Dodger fans.
Fans were hoping that Baez would be left off the roster with rookie Walker Buehler or burner Tim Locastro taking his place.
However, speaking to the media before Game 1, Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts said that Baez's body of work was behind his decision to include the Dominican right-hander on the roster.
"Ultimately, Pedro has been a big part of what we've done all year," Roberts said. "I trust him. Arguably, he's been our high-leveraged reliever outside of Kenley all year. So, I just think that makes sense.
