Gio Gonzalez left off Brewers roster for wild card game

The Milwaukee Brewers’ roster for Tuesday night’s National League Wild Card Game does not include two pitchers who once appeared in the playoffs for the Washington Nationals.

Gio Gonzalez and Matt Albers were left off the wild-card roster, the Brewers announced Tuesday. Gonzalez pitched 4 2/3 innings and did not allow a run Saturday for the Brewers against the Colorado Rockies.

Albers pitched in the playoffs for the Nationals in 2017 while Gonzalez, a lefty starter, appeared in the postseason for Washington in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017.

Albers had 5.17 ERA in 67 games out of the bullpen this season for the Brewers while Gonzalez was 3-2, 3.
