The season is over for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
After signing Freddie Freeman and going on to win a franchise-record 111 games, the Dodgers fell short in the NLDS against the San Diego Padres.
Now, the Dodgers turn their focus to the offseason, where they’ll have a ton of questions to answer about their roster in 2023.
Now that the season is over, there are several notable Dodgers who may not be returning next season.
Justin Turner has a club option, but it’s very possible that the Dodgers won’t exercise it.

Dodgers Offseason Question Marks
This leaves some holes in the Dodgers roster that need to be filled before the start of 2023.
Trea Turner is the biggest question mark.
The Dodgers let Corey Seager walk this past offseason to give Turner the starting shortstop job.
Now, Turner is a free agent and is expected by many around the league to sign elsewhere.
While the Dodgers still have a strong nucleus of players that includes Freeman, Mookie Betts, Will Smith, Tony Gonsolin, Julio Urias, and others, there are some key contributors that may not be back in 2023.
What they’ll do with Justin Turner is up for debate, as he is 37.
With Walker Buehler out, they’ll have some holes to fill in the rotation.
Anderson and Kershaw were both All-Stars in 2022.
One would expect that the Dodgers would be able to find a way to retain Kershaw, who went 12-3 with a 2.28 ERA in 22 starts.
Everybody else on that list is a question mark, and the Dodgers may have some tough decisions to make in the near future.
