Cards’ roster set
The Cardinals set their roster Sunday morning for the National League Championship Series, and as expected the club made two adjustments.
Kyle McClellan and Lance Lynn were both added to the St. Louis bullpen, while second baseman Skip Schumaker and pitcher Jake Westbrook were removed from the roster. McClellan is returning from a bout with “dead arm,” while Lynn had been sidelined since August due to a strained left oblique muscle.
To make room for Lynn on the 40-man roster, the Cardinals designated outfielder Andrew Brown for assignment. Lynn had been on the 60-day disabled list, and Sunday was the first day he was eligible to be activated.
The Cardinals’ complete NLCS roster is as follows:
Pitchers: Jaime Garcia, Edwin Jackson, Chris Carpenter, Kyle Lohse, Jason Motte, Fernando Salas, Octavio Dotel, McClellan, Lynn, Mitchell Boggs, Arthur Rhodes, Marc Rzepczynski.
Hitters: Yadier Molina, Gerald Laird, Albert Pujols, Ryan Theriot, Rafael Furcal, David Freese, Nick Punto, Daniel Descalso, Matt Holliday, Jon Jay, Lance Berkman, Allen Craig, Adron Chambers.
