We wrote about our roster expectations a couple weeks ago and there aren’t many surprises here. Of the fringe players, Matt Szczur has been left off. That means that Albert Almora will bring his incredible defensive skills to the NLDS.
As for the pitchers, there’s no surprises at all. Unfortunate for Jason Hammel, but we knew he was not likely to make the Cut.
