ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have added left-hander Alex Wood as an extra pitcher for the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves, while also bringing back infielder Edwin Rios after he missed the last round with a groin injury.
Wood missed a month of the shortened season because of a shoulder injury in his first start, though he returned in September when seven of his eight appearances were in relief.
Los Angeles is going with 15 pitchers, after having 14 on its roster in the three-game NL Division Series sweep of San Diego, and 13 in the wild-card round against Milwaukee.
Terrance Gore was left off the NLCS roster after the speedy outfielder didn't appear in either series. Rios replaced Gavin Lux, who got only one at-bat against the Padres.
The Dodgers' 28-player roster for the best-of-seven NLCS against the Braves that starts Monday night:
Pitchers (15): RH Pedro Baéz, RH Walker Buehler, RH Dylan Floro, RH Tony Gonsolin, LH Victor González, RH Brusdar Graterol, RH Kenley Jansen, RH Joe Kelly, LH Clayton Kershaw, LH Adam Kolarek, RH Dustin May, LH Jake McGee, RH Blake Treinen, LH Julio Urías, LH Alex Wood.
Catchers (2): Austin Barnes, Will Smith
Infielders (5): Matt Beaty, Max Muncy, Edwin Rios, Corey Seager, Justin Turner.
Outfielders (4): Cody Bellinger, Mookie Betts, Joc Pederson, AJ Pollock.
Infielders/Outfielders (2): Kiké Hernández, Chris Taylor.
