News: Pierzynski will be on the Cardinals' NLCS roster, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Pierzynski was left off the team's 25-man roster in the NLDS but will take the spot of Sam Freeman this round. He likely won't see a lot of playing time, if any, but his inclusion on the roster is at least noteworthy after his limited playing time down the stretch.(RotoWire, )

News: The San Francisco Giants expect to add Michael Morse to the roster for the NL Championship Series, while the St. Louis Cardinals strengthened their bench by including catcher A.J. Pierzynski. Impact: The 37-year-old Pierzynski replaces lefty reliever Sam Freeman on the Cardinals roster. Manager Mike Matheny said Pierzynski gave the team an experienced bat off the bench, and a third catcher that allows for use of backup Tony Cruz. ''It's more so what A.J. brings more than anything else,'' Matheny said. (STATS, 6:07pm)
