Curtis Granderson Won't Be on the Dodgers' World Series Roster

Pink's Hot Dogs celebrates Chargers Move to LA

All-Star shortstop Corey Seager missed the National League Championship Series with a back sprain, but is expected to return to the Los Angeles Dodgers in some capacity for the World Series, which begins Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. One of those bumped from L.A's 25-man final group was veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson.

Seager injured his back on a routine slide during Game 3 of the National League Division Series, and received an epidural shot the next day.

Roberts has said it's possible Seager will be used as a designated hitter on the road when the games shift to Houston on Friday.

Seager hit.295 with 22 home runs and 77 RBIs, a season after he was the NL Rookie of the Year.

"Unless something really unforeseen happens, I don't see how he won't be active for us", Roberts said. Big NLCS performances from fellow southpaw Andre Ethier, Kiké Hernandez (who homered three times in the clinching Game 5) and Charlie Culberson (who hit.455 while picking up Seager's slack at short) also likely sealed Granderson's fate. He went 6-4 with a 3.98 in 19 appearances during the regular season, 16 of them starts. He only pitched six innings since July 20 due to a knee injury.

However, a mysterious hole opens up in the sky and transports the survivors to a odd location. Konami has announced some Survival pack DLC for those who pre-order the game.

That followed a regular season in which he hit just.161 (18 of 112) after being acquired.

Farmer was the third-string catcher in the first two rounds and went 0-for-4 in five games.

The last time the two squared off was on August 20 when Granderson, in his second game as a Dodger, homered off Verlander to break up a potential no-hitter.

Houston did not make any changes from its AL Championship Series roster. If the Dodgers win it all, Granderson, 36, will still be awarded a World Series ring.
