Injured shortstop Dansby Swanson didn’t make the Atlanta B Antworten

LOS ANGELES (AP) — raves‘ roster for the National League Division Series. His replacement is Charlie Culberson , someone familiar to the Los Angeles Dodgers.The Braves announced their roster Thursday, hours before the start of Game 1.The Dodgers left All-Star pitcher Ross Stripling off their roster. The right-hander sparkled when added to the rotation because of injuries, going 8-3 with a 2.92 ERA before getting hurt and shifting back to the bullpen in August.Also not on the Dodgers’ roster is 39-year-old infielder Chase Utley, who had announced he’ll retire at the end of the season although it’s likely he has already played in his last game.The Dodgers are carrying 12 pitchers and 13 position players. Ambidextrous reliever Pat Venditte and reliever John Axford, who came over from Toronto at the trade deadline in August, didn’t make the roster.Swanson tore a ligament in his left hand against the New York Mets in the next-to-last series of the regular season. He is one of Atlanta’s top defensive players. At the plate, he was hitting .238, with 14 home runs and 59 RBIs in 136 games.Culberson is making his third straight playoff appearance. He helped the Dodgers to the World Series last year.The Braves’ 25-man roster features 12 pitchers Jason Castro Jersey , including right-hander Julio Teheran, one of just two players who were with Atlanta for its last postseason appearance in 2013. The other is first baseman Freddie Freeman.The other pitchers are: Brad Brach, Game 1 starter Mike Foltynewicz, rookie Max Fried, Kevin Gausman, rookie A.J. Minter, Sean Newcomb, Game 2 starter Anibal Sanchez Phil Hughes Jersey , rookie Chad Sobotka, rookie Touki Toussaint, Jonny Venters and Arodys Vizcaino.Sanchez went to the 2012 World Series with Detroit. Venters pitched for the Braves in their postseason appearances in 2010 and 2012.Besides Culberson and Freeman, other infielders are Ozzie Albies, Johan Camargo, Lucas Duda and Ryan Flaherty. Duda helped the Mets win the NL pennant in 2015.The Atlanta outfielders are rookie Ronald Acuna Jr., Lane Adams, Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis. WASHINGTON (AP) — Unusual scheduling spawned even more atypical travel attire for Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo.The three-time All-Star wore a uniform , complete with a blue jersey and gray pants, on the Cubs’ early Thursday morning flight for a makeup game against the Washington Nationals, then arrived in the clubhouse with the same outfit.“It’s all I got,” Rizzo said.The Cubs returned to Washington for the second time in a week after Sunday’s game was postponed. The four-day series, which included another rainout Friday and a doubleheader Saturday, featured nearly 11 hours in rain delays.Thursday’s game was scheduled on the only remaining common day off for the teams before the end of the regular season, and it split up what was to be a six-game homestand for the Cubs. It also came after a state of emergency was declared in Washington in anticipation of the effects of Hurricane Florence.The makeup date also extended the Cubs’ streak of 23 consecutive scheduled game dates to 30. Their next day off is Sept. 20.“At the end of the day, our front office , our owners have our back,” Rizzo said. “We’re in a long stretch of games that people in MLB that have been on the players’ side and they understand the human element of it and they seem not to care at all. It is what it is. We can sit here and complain about it or we can joke around about it.”Rizzo’s sartorial choice was met with amusement in the Cubs’ clubhouse.“I wish he had said something sooner because we could have all done it. I would have done it in a heartbeat,” manager Joe Maddon said.Might Rizzo be a trendsetter?“If we win, I’m sure you’ll see another guy wearing a uniform, too,” Rizzo said. “Hopefully, we win and keep winning and we’ll do a team dinner or something in Chicago in full uniform.”
