The Phillies set their National League Championship Series roster this morning.
As expected, Kyle Kendrick and Brett Myers have been left off and Chan Ho Park and Eric Bruntlett have been added after they were not on the Division Series roster. The moves give the Phillies 11 pitchers instead of 12, but add an extra bench player.
Myers allowed two walks in two-thirds of an inning in Game 2 against Colorado and Kendrick did not pitch.
Park has been rehabbing an injurred hamstring suffered in mid-September but yesterday proclaimed himself ready to return. Bruntlett gives the Phillies an extra pinch-runner or defensive replacements for late in games. Pitcher Cliff Lee saw pinch-running duties in the NLDS when the bench was thinned.
Here is the roster:
Catchers (2): Paul Bako and Carlos Ruiz
Infielders (7): Eric Bruntlett, Miguel Cairo, Greg Dobbs, Pedro Feliz, Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley
Outfielders (5): Ben Francisco, Raul Ibañez, Matt Stairs, Jayson Werth and Shane Victorino
Pitchers (11): Righthanders Joe Blanton, Chad Durbin, Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson, Pedro Martinez, Chan Ho Park and lefthanders Antonio Bastardo, Scott Eyre, Cole Hamels, J.A. Happ and Cliff Lee.
