    Dodgers leave Ryan Yarbrough, Amed Rosario off NLDS roster
    • October 7, 2023

    LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers announced their roster for the National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday morning and it did not include two of their trade-deadline acquisitions.

    Left-hander Ryan Yarbrough and infielder Amed Rosario were left off the roster for the best-of-five series.

    Yarbrough was acquired from the Kansas City Royals at midseason and went 4-2 with a 4.89 ERA in 11 games with the Dodgers. The left-hander allowed nine runs on 11 hits in four innings at Coors Field in his final appearance of the regular season. Rookies Ryan Pepiot and Emmet Sheehan are expected to fill the multi-inning role in which Yarbrough would have been used.

    Four rookies are among the Dodgers’ 13 pitchers for this round – Bobby Miller (expected to start Game 2), Michael Grove, Pepiot and Sheehan.

    For the final bench spot, the Dodgers opted to go for the left-handed Kolten Wong over the right-handed Rosario. The Diamondbacks’ roster for this series includes three left-handed relievers but right-handers Merrill Kelly and Zac Gallen are expected to start four of the five games (if it goes the distance) with another right-hander, Brandon Pfaadt, also available.

    Rosario has played almost exclusively against left-handed pitching since being acquired from the Cleveland Guardians. He batted .256 with three home runs and 18 RBIs in 48 games for the Dodgers.

    Here is the Dodgers’ full roster for the NLDS:

    PITCHERS (13) — RH Ryan Brasier, LH Caleb Ferguson, RH Michael Grove, RH Brusdar Graterol, RH Joe Kelly, RH Bobby Miller, RH Shelby Miller, LH Clayton Kershaw, RH Lance Lynn, RH Ryan Pepiot, RH Evan Phillips, RH Emmet Sheehan, LH Alex Vesia

    CATCHERS (2) — Austin Barnes, Will Smith

    INFIELDERS/OUTFIELDERS (10) — Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Chris Taylor, Miguel Rojas, Max Muncy, David Peralta, James Outman, Jason Heyward, Kiké Hernandez, Kolten Wong

    DH (1) — J.D. Martinez
