The Rays have set their 28-man roster for their ALCS matchup with the Astros.  Blake Snell will start tonight’s Game 1, and it has been widely speculated that Charlie Morton will start Game 2, though no official decision has been made.

Two changes were made from Tampa Bay’s ALDS roster, as the Rays have added left-handers Jose Alvarado and Josh Fleming to the pitching staff.  Alvarado was just activated from the 45-day injured list, and has been sidelined since August 14.  Fleming last threw on September 27, tossing six shutout innings against the Phillies.  The Rays now have six left-handers to deploy against a Houston team that didn’t post good numbers against southpaws during the regular season, though the Astros lineup has been mashing both lefties and righties during the playoffs.

Alvarado and Fleming will take the place of righty Trevor Richards and outfielder Brett Phillips.  Richards was a mid-series replacement for the injured Oliver Drake and didn’t pitch in the ALDS against the Yankees, while Phillips was a defensive substitution in three games against New York and didn’t reach base over two plate appearances.
