The Dodgers have yet to release their postseason rosters, but that hasn’t stopped the rumors from flying around. Those rumors were further fueled by the guys who showed up at the stadium for workouts on Tuesday afternoon.
One of those guys that showed up for workouts was Terrance Gore. Gore has not logged a single at-bat for the Dodgers in 2020. Instead, he has appeared as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement in 2 games. Aside from that, he’s been spending his time at the USC location getting his reps in.
But when asked about Terrance Gore on Tuesday, Dave Roberts revealed that there was a good chance that Gore made the wildcard roster. The Dodgers would likely only use him in a pinch-running role if they were to add him.

It makes sense in one sense, but it also takes away a roster spot from someone who could use it. Given that it’s only a 3-game series, the Dodgers could potentially go with a shorter bullpen an opt to give that spot to Gore. That would ensure that they do not need to keep a bat off of the roster just to get him on.
