Dodgers Announce NLCS Roster with Changes for Braves Series



Today the Dodgers announced their 28-man roster for the National League Championship Series against the Braves. As manager Dave Roberts has previously announced, there were some changes for this round.

The club is carrying 15 pitchers and 13 position players for this best of 7 round. There are no off days for the NLCS.

Who’s On, Who’s Off

Right off the bat, the differences are DH Edwin Rios and LHP Alex Wood are on the roster and second baseman Gavin Lux and pinch-runner Terrance Gore are off. Lux was added to the roster for the last round after Rios suffered a groin injury. He made one plate appearance in the NLDS.

Terrance Gore has been on each postseason roster thus far but has yet to make it into a game. This also marks Wood’s first appearance on the active roster this postseason.

    • Probably because the Braves had a lower average against LHPs this year. But I’m with you, Wood hasn’t earned a postseason spot.
