Cubs Announce NLCS Roster: Addison Russell Out, Quintin Berry In

Chicago Cubs

It’s speedster Quintin Berry, who won’t offer much at the plate, but whose speed could come in handy in low-scoring, colder-weather games. Hopefully he comes through in a huge spot and we can all feel a little less bad about not having Russell available. (It would also help if Javy Baez goes off at the plate, which he could.)

Otherwise, the roster should look familiar to you, as it’s the same as the NLDS roster:


28-Kyle Hendricks, RHP

33-Clayton Richard, LHP

34-Jon Lester, LHP

37-Travis Wood, LHP

39-Jason Hammel, RHP

46-Pedro Strop, RHP

49-Jake Arrieta, RHP

52-Justin Grimm, RHP

53-Trevor Cahill, RHP

56-Hector Rondon, RHP

57-Fernando Rodney, RHP


3-David Ross

5-Quintin Berry

8-Chris Coghlan

9-Javier Baez

11-Tommy La Stella

12-Kyle Schwarber

13-Starlin Castro

15-Chris Denorfia

17-Kris Bryant

24-Dexter Fowler

27-Austin Jackson

44-Anthony Rizzo

47-Miguel Montero

68-Jorge Soler
