The Brewers made no changes to their 25-man postseason roster heading into Sunday’s NLCS Game 1. The Cardinals were a littler bit busier.
Lynn is finally recovered from a severe oblique strain that cost him the final two months of the regular season, and McClellan is over the dead arm phase that plagued him in late September. Schumaker strained his oblique during Friday night’s thrilling Game 5 victory over the Phillies and probably won’t be available even if the Cardinals advance to the World Series. Westbrook, a starter during the regular season, was not used once in the NLDS.
Asked why he opted not to add a position player (like Tyler Greene) in place of Schumaker, Cards manager Tony La Russa told reporters that he’s aiming to neutralize Milwaukee’s dangerous right-handed bats.
