The Dodgers have decided to carry 12 pitchers and 13 position players on their 25-man roster for the National League Division Series starting Friday against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Here’s the full NLDS roster:
Pitchers: Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Dan Haren, Pedro Baez, Scott Elbert, Carlos Frias, J.P. Howell, Kenley Jansen, Brandon League, Brian Wilson and Jamey Wright.
Position Players: catchers: A.J. Ellis and Drew Butera, outfielders: Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig, infielders: Dee Gordon, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez, Miguel Rojas, Justin Turner and Juan Uribe. Scott Van Slyke is listed as an infielder/outfielder.
In a bit of a surprising move manager Don Mattingly chose Elbert over Paco Rodriguez as a second left-hand reliever. However, he said before Game 1 Friday that Rodriguez will stay with the team and travel to St. Louis during the series.
Right-hander Frias seemed a long shot to make the roster but Mattingly gave him the nod. Darwin Barney, Joc Pederson, Tim Federowicz and Roberto Hernandez are other non-roster players who will also travel with the team.
