Gomez on roster for Astros in wild-card game
NEW YORK (AP) Center fielder Carlos Gomez, who missed the final regular-season series with a strained left chest muscle, is on the roster for Houston’s AL wild-card game against the New York Yankees.
Gomez is expected to start for Houston on Tuesday night. Also on the roster is right-hander Mike Fiers, a starter who threw a no-hitter in August and has one relief appearance for the Astros this season since he joined Houston with Gomez in a trade from Milwaukee.
The Astros will carry nine pitchers, two catchers, eight infielders and six outfielders into their first playoff game since 2005.
