It wasn’t a pretty ride getting here, the Astros’ season record was 29-31, but they made it. Sixth seed in the expanded MLB playoffs and three games against the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis. It was a shortened 60 game season full of injuries and slumps, but today the meter hits reset. Anything can happen now.
The Astros bring about the 28-man roster you’d expect into this series, with a couple of twists. Josh James is activated from IL, and outfielder Chas McCormick, who has never played in the big leagues before, is added to the roster.
Here is the Astros’ AL Wild Card Series roster:
Pitchers (12): Zack Greinke, Josh James, Cristian Javier, Lance McCullers Jr.
