Here is the roster that the Rays will use for tonight’s Wild Card game. Keep in mind, this is a roster for a 1-game series. Some thoughts on the roster can be seen below…
Notes on the roster…
- This is a 1-game playoff series roster, so there are just 9 pitchers.
- Both Matt Moore and Chris Archer are on the roster, presumably as long-relief options in case: a) Alex Cobb gets knocked out early; or b) the game goes into extra innings
- Wesley Wright is in the bullpen, and Brandon Gomes is not.
- Kevin Kiermaier is on the bench again to be used as a late-inning defensive replacement.
- Delmon Young is on the roster and Luke Scott is not.
- The Rays played the tie-breaker game with 38 players on the roster.
