Dodgers vs. Cardinals: Complete NLCS Rosters

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals are keeping the same roster for the NLCS, while the Dodgers swapped out a pair of pitchers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals have announced their rosters for the NLCS, which is scheduled to begin tonight at Busch Stadium.

St. Louis will use the same 25-man roster in the NLCS that they employed in the NLDS. The Cardinals hoped that first baseman Allen Craig could return from his left foot sprain and serve as a pinch-hitter during the series, but he has not progressed enough from his injury to return to the field.

The full Cardinals roster is listed below:

Los Angeles made two changes to their roster, adding Carlos Marmol and Edinson Volquez to replace Paco Rodriguez and Chris Capuano. The decision to add both inconsistent right-handers to the roster has been a surprise to many:

The full Dodgers roster is listed below:

Pitchers: Ronald Belisario, Zack Greinke, J.P. Howell, Kenley Jansen, Clayton Kershaw, Carlos Marmol, Ricky Nolasco, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Edinson Volquez, Brian Wilson, Chris Withrow

Position players: Carl Crawford, A.J. Ellis, Mark Ellis, Andre Ethier, Tim Federowicz, Adrian Gonzalez, Dee Gordon, Yasiel Puig, Nick Punto, Hanley Ramirez, Skip Schumaker, Juan Uribe, Scott Van Slyke, Michael Young.

First pitch for Game 1 of the NLCS is scheduled for 8:37 p.m. ET, with TBS televising the game.
