Nationals-Astros World Series rosters announced

The Washington Nationals will field 14 position players and 11 pitchers against the Houston Astros in the World Series.

Both clubs announced their World Series rosters – with few surprises – in advance of Game 1 on Tuesday.

The lone change for the Nats from their NLCS roster is including right-handed pitchers Joe Ross and Wander Suero. Suero was on the initial NLCS roster in place of Daniel Hudson, who missed Game 1 on the paternity list, but was replaced by Hudson for the remainder of the series. Ross takes Austin Voth's roster spot.


Here's the Nationals' full 25-man roster:


Patrick Corbin (L)

Sean Doolittle (L)

Javy Guerra

Daniel Hudson

Tanner Rainey

Fernando Rodney

Joe Ross

Anibal Sanchez

Max Scherzer

Stephen Strasburg

Wander Suero

Asdrubal Cabrera (S)

Anthony Rendon

Trea Turner

Ryan Zimmerman


Adam Eaton (L)

Gerardo Parra (L)

Michael A. Taylor


The Astros won't carry any left-handed pitchers on their World Series roster, although right-handed reliever Will Harris is nearly as effective against hitters from both sides of the plate, with a .183 and .207 batting average against right- and left-handed hitters, respectively.
