The Houston Astros have announced their World Series roster in advance of Tuesday’s Game 1 against the Atlanta Braves. Houston will carry 13 pitchers and 13 position players with the only surprise being the inclusion of utility man Marwin Gonzalez who replaces Jake Meyers.
Pitchers (13): RHP Luis Garcia, RHP Yimi Garcia, RHP Kendall Graveman, RHP Zack Greinke, RHP Cristian Javier, RHP Phil Maton, RHP Jake Odorizzi, RHP Ryan Pressly, LHP Brooks Raley, RHP Ryne Stanek, LHP Blake Taylor, RHP Jose Urquidy, LHP Framber Valdez
Catchers (2): Jason Castro, Martin Maldonado
Infielders (6): Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, Aledmys Diaz, Yuli Gurriel, Marwin Gonzalez
Outfielders (5): Yordan Alvarez, Michael Brantley, Chas McCormick, Jose Siri, Kyle Tucker
Gonzalez was released by the Red Sox in August and signed a minor league deal with Houston a couple of weeks later. He spent the first seven years of his career with the Astros playing a variety of positions and put up career-best numbers in 2017.
