Rockies/D-Backs Set Wild-Card Rosters

The Rockies included two starting pitchers on their roster for the Wild-Card Game against the D-Backs in Phoenix on Wednesday night. Jon Gray will start the game. Lefty Tyler Anderson is there as insurance in case Gray struggles or if the game extends into extra innings. In a perfect world Anderson would start Game 1 of the NL Division Series against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on Friday.

The Rockies also kept three catchers — Jonathan Lucroy, who will start the game, and back ups Tony Wolters and Ryan Hanigan. That move gives manager Bud Black flexbility. Wolters was originally a middle infielder so he could fill in at second or short if a need arose, and he also is a left-handed bat off the bench.

Raimel Tapia made the roster as an extra outfielder, but he also is 2-for-4 against D-Backs late-inning reliever Archie Bradley, and along with fellow outfielder Mike Tauchman he provides a base-running threat in late innings, too.
