Texas Rangers playoff roster: The ALDS roster for the Rangers’ five game series against the Toronto Blue Jays has been announced this morning, right at the 10 a.m. deadline by which rosters had to be set.
Jared Hoying is on the roster as a pinch runner and defensive replacement, as is Nomar Mazara, whose spot on the roster I had questions about. Going with seven relievers gave the Rangers the ability to keep Mazara and Hoying both on the bench.
C — Jonathan Lucroy, Robinson Chirinos
IF -- Mitch Moreland, Rougned Odor, Elvis Andrus, Adrian Beltre, Jurickson Profar, Ryan Rua
OF -- Carlos Gomez, Shin-Soo Choo, Carlos Beltran, Ian Desmond, Nomar Mazara, Jared Hoying
SP — Yu Darvish, Cole Hamels, Colby Lewis, Martin Perez
RP — Sam Dyson, Matt Bush, Tony Barnette, Jake Diekman, Keone Kela, Jeremy Jeffress, Alex Claudio
