The Dodgers have made a couple of changes to their 28-man roster ahead of the NLCS, per the team. Let’s check it out:

The most notable changes here include dropping Terrance Gore and Gavin Lux from the roster. Gore’s role is limited to pinch-running, but he had not been used in the first two rounds of the postseason. Lux, meanwhile, is one of the organization’s most talented young players. He played a key role in last year’s playoffs, when he started three games of the NLDS against the Nationals. He had just one at-bat this postseason, however, after slashing .175/.246/.349 across 69 plate appearances in the regular season.

Lux himself had been a replacement for Rios, who missed the ALDS due to a hamstring injury. He is apparently healthy enough to return to the roster.

The other addition is Wood, who becomes the 15th member of the pitching staff. It will be surprising to see Wood start a game, except perhaps in an opener capacity. At the very least, he should be able to provide length out of the bullpen. Wood’s best years have come with the Dodgers, but he’s struggled to get himself on track the last two seasons. He made two starts and nine total appearances for the Dodgers this year, going 0-1 with a 6.39 ERA/5.01 FIP across 12 2/3 innings.
