The Rangers have finalized their World Series roster, with Mark Lowe being activated and added to the bullpen, and Clay Rapada being de-activated.

This isn't a huge surprise, I don't think...the Rangers were really fired up about Lowe in September, and I thought he was going to end up on the ALDS roster.  Rapada had been added to the ALCS roster for the purpose of shutting down Robinson Cano, and given that Rapada didn't do that, and the Giants don't have a real lefty-heavy group, he figured to be dropped.

Lowe gives the Rangers a righty power arm that they'll probably look to to help them navigate the middle innings if a starter goes less than 7 innings.
