The Dodgers on Tuesday morning announced their 28-man roster ahead of the 2020 World Series against the Rays, which begins on Tuesday evening at Globe Life Field in Arlington.
The club’s selections are identical to the team that defeated the Braves in seven games in the National League Championship Series.
Pitchers (15): Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Julio Urias (L), Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, Kenley Jansen, Blake Treinen, Brusdar Graterol, Pedro Baez, Victor Gonzalez (L), Joe Kelly, Jake McGee (L), Dylan Floro, Adam Kolarek (L) and Alex Wood (L)
Skipper Dave Roberts previously announced that Kershaw will be the starter for the series opener. He’ll be opposed by righty Tyler Glasnow of the Rays, who has posted a 2-1 record with a 4.66 ERA and 25 punchouts over 19-1/3 innings so far this postseason.
In a bit of breaking news, Roberts told reporters on Tuesday morning that Buehler will be the starter for Game 3, despite remaining undecided who will take the mound for Game 2. Conceivably, Buehler’s Game 3 start could allow him to be rested enough to start a prospective Game 7.
Tuesday’s first pitch is slated for 8:11 p.m. Eastern time. The game will be televised by FOX.
