The two teams are hours away from competing to earn a shot at the Boston Red Sox in the AL Divisional Series.
The Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Indians have released their full rosters for Wednesday night's American Wild Card game at Progressive Field.
These rosters are only for the Wild Card game. Whichever team wins tonight will be able to change their 25-man roster for the Divisional Series against the Boston Red Sox. Because Wednesday night is a one-game playoff, the two sides were afforded additional roster flexibility by not needing to activate several starting pitchers.
Here are the full rosters for both squads:
Right handed pitchers: Danny Salazar, Justin Masterson, Cody Allen, Joe Smith, Matt Albers, Bryan Shaw, Chris Perez, Corey Kluber
Left handed pitchers: Marc Rzepczynski, Rich Hill, Scott Kazmir
Catchers: Carlos Santana, Yan Gomes
Infielders: Nick Swisher, Jason Kipnis, Asdrubal Cabrera, Lonnie Chisenhall, Jason Giambi, Mike Aviles, Jose Ramirez
Outfielders: Michael Brantley, Michael Bourn, Drew Stubbs, Ryan Raburn, Matt Carson
Tampa Bay Rays
Right handed pitchers: Alex Cobb, Chris Archer, Joel Peralta, Fernando Rodney, Jamey Wright
Left handed pitchers: Jake McGee, Matt Moore, Alex Torres, Wesley Wright
Catchers: Chris Gimenez, Jose Lobaton, Jose Molina
Infielders: Yunel Escobar, James Loney, Evan Longoria, Ben Zobrist
Outfielders: David DeJesus, Sam Fuld, Desmond Jennings, Kelly Johnson, Matt Joyce, Kevin Kiermaier, Wil Myers, Sean Rodriguez, Delmon Young
First pitch is scheduled for 8:07 PM EST as the Indians send rookie Danny Salazar to the mound to face Alex Cobb of the Rays.
