Indians set their wildcard roster
The Indians released their roster for the American League Wildcard game against the Tampa Bay Rays tonight. The roster includes 11 pitchers and 14 position players, and really no surprises with the makeup of it.
Note, this roster is just for this game and would be changed in advance of the American League Division Series against Boston if the Indians win tonight.
PITCHERS (11): Matt Albers (RHP), Cody Allen (RHP), Rich Hill (LHP), Scott Kazmir (LHP), Corey Kluber (RHP), Justin Masterson (RHP), Chris Perez (RHP), Marc Rzepczynski (LHP), Danny Salazar (RHP), Bryan Shaw (RHP), Joe Smith (RHP)
CATCHERS (2): Yan Gomes, Carlos Santana
INFIELDERS (7): Mike Aviles, Asdrubal Cabrera, Lonnie Chisenhall, Jason Giambi, Jason Kipnis, Jose Ramirez, Nick Swisher
OUTFIELDERS (5): Michael Bourn, Michael Brantley, Matt Carson, Drew Stubbs, Ryan Raburn

Boy, who would have figured getting this far without Pestano and little from Perez. Hope they are able to get it together for next year.
Going to be intersting to see who gets bumped if the Tribe wins tonight. Ubaldo obviously gets added...does McAllister? I don't see him a pen guy personally.
Best guess is maybe Ramirez over Carson is removed for Ubaldo?
