Jason Miller

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:

Cleveland Indians

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
