Dodgers add Brandon McCarthy, Corey Seager to World Series roster

Vin Scully Celebrates The Dodgers Being World Series Bound Kendall Lewis 10/21/2017 News 1

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts had expressed confidence that Seager would be fit to feature for the NL champions. On Tuesday, just ahead of the first game of the World Series, the Dodgers announced that the 36-year-old veteran of 14 seasons will not be part of their Fall Classic roster.

Shortstop Corey Seager and right-hander Brandon McCarthy were added to the active roster for the World Series by the Los Angeles Dodgers, who dropped outfielder Curtis Granderson and backup catcher Kyle Farmer.

Roberts has said it's possible Seager will be used as a designated hitter on the road when the games shift to Houston on Friday.

Dodgers are still waiting to see who their opponent will be in the World Series as the New York Yankees and Houston Astros are still battling it out in the ALCS. But Granderson was even worse in the postseason, with one hit and eight strikeouts in 15 at-bats, and with Seager healthy, Taylor takes center back over, leaving Granderson without a place.

Demonetisation: Nov 8 is 'anti black money day'
When the NDA government came to power (May 2014), Prime Minister Narendra Modi took steps to minimise and end it. Demonetisation was a big step towards it. "The Congress had adequate opportunity to be in power".

Granderson's.067 batting average in the postseason was the lowest among Dodger position players with at least 10 at-bats. Game 1 of the World Series will be two weeks from that shot. Ethier missed most of the season with a herniated disk in his back.

McCarthy was 6-4 with a 3.98 ERA in 19 games (16 starts) during the regular season. He was activated from the disabled list on September 1 and hit.235 with a.441 slugging percentage in 22 games to finish the season.

Farmer, who served as the Dodgers' third catcher during the past two rounds and can also play third base, went 0-for-4 with a sacrifice fly during playoff victories over Arizona and Chicago.

It's no real surprise that Granderson won't be playing against the Astros, as he was awful in spot duty for the Dodgers down the stretch, hitting.161/.288/.366 in 132 plate appearances.
