Bored on an off day so thought I’d have a running thread of what we think the playoff roster might look like and how it might change over the next few weeks. Obviously lots of moving parts including injuries, hot streaks, and opponents, but wanted to just do a thought on where the team is at. I’m assuming 13 position players and 12 pitchers as that is what they’ve done consistently over past 2 years. I wanna note that this is what I think the team will do, not necessarily what I’d do I guess: Position Players (13) Locks: Smith and Martin Bellinger, Seager, Joc, Pollock, Freese Turner and Muncy locks if assuming healthy That leaves 4 spots open. I’m guessing it’s Taylor, Enrique, Lux, and Beaty. Taylor is probably actually a lock and he’s a must, Lux/Enrique/Beaty have shown enough to be on the teams Verdugo would challenge Enrique/Lux/Beaty if healthy. Gyorko hasn’t shown enough to be on there but he’s in if anything happens to Freese OR if a team is lefty heavy and maybe they have him instead of Beaty. Rios could possibly go in if Lux slumps too much, or they want another lefty (although that’d be a lot). Negron/Barnes could replace Beaty or Lux if they think it’s too many lefties and they want a last spot for a pinch runner (doubt this) So: Smith, Martin, Bellinger, Seager, Joc, Pollock, Freese, Taylor, Enrique, Lux, and Beaty. Pitchers (12) Locks: Kershaw, Buehler, Ryu Jansen, Baez, Kelly, Maeda, Urias 4 spots open for a group of the following: Gonsolin, May, Kolarek, Ferguson, Yimi, Hill, and Stripling One lefty for sure will be in. I’m gonna guess Kolarek. 3 spots remaining and I think Stripling definitely gets in cause of flexibility. So then, it’s choosing between 2 of Hill, Yimi, Ferguson, May, and Gonsolin. I think I’d rank them: Hill, Gonsolin, May, Ferguson, then Yimi. Hill is in if he’s healthy, Gonsolin has had the most success as both starter and reliever. Difference between May and Ferguson might depend on match up. Yimi has been actually very good this year but the home run problem is just too scary. So: Kershaw, Buehler, Ryu, Jansen, Baez, Kelly, Maeda, Urias, Kolarek, Stripling, Gonsolin, and Hill if healthy, May if not.
