Astros add Seth Martinez to ALCS roster; Meyers off

October 19th, 2022

HOUSTON -- The Astros set their American League Championship Series roster ahead of Wednesday's opener against the Yankees at Minute Maid Park.

The roster includes 13 pitchers, two catchers, eight infielders and three outfielders, and the only change to the Astros' roster from the ALDS was the addition of right-hander and the removal of outfielder Jake Meyers.

Martinez held right-handed hitters to a .135/.214/.180 slash line in the regular season, and that'll be key against a right-handed-heavy Yankees lineup led by Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.

Here is the 26-man roster:

Pitchers (13): Right-handers Bryan Abreu, Hunter Brown, Luis Garcia, Cristian Javier, Seth Martinez, Lance McCullers Jr., Rafael Montero, Héctor Neris, Ryan Pressly, Ryne Stanek, José Urquidy and Justin Verlander; left-hander Framber Valdez

Catchers (2): Martín Maldonado and Christian Vázquez

Infielders (8): Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Aledmys Díaz, Mauricio Dubón, Yuli Gurriel, David Hensley, Trey Mancini and Jeremy Peña

Outfielders (3): Yordan Alvarez, Chas McCormick and Kyle Tucker
