Rangers 25-man roster for ALCS

As expected, the Rangers have decided to go with an extra pitcher and not put third catcher Matt Treanor on the roster. Texas added Yoshinori Tateyama to the roster for the AL Championship Series. That gives them eight relievers and means the bench is shortened by one player. But it gives the club that additional arm they might need in a seven-game series.

Because the Tigers have all right-handed pitching, the chances that both Yorvit Torrealba and Mike Napoli would be in the same lineup with one at DH are slim. So they can afford to carry the additional pitcher. The roster:

Infield (6)

Mitch Moreland

Ian Kinsler

Adrian Beltre

Elvis Andrus
