Texas has 7 relievers, 3 catchers on ALDS roster
Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington is going with an extra catcher and seven relief pitchers in the AL division series against Tampa Bay.
The 25-man roster released Friday for the ALDS includes catchers Mike Napoli, Yorvit Torrealba and Matt Treanor, a part of the Rangers' World Series run last year who was reacquired a month ago.
Napoli set career highs with a .320 batting average, 30 home runs and 75 RBIs in 113 games. He can also play first base or DH, flexibility that gives Washington more options with his lineup with an extra catcher.
The relievers are right-handers Mike Adams, Scott Feldman, Neftali Feliz, Alexi Ogando and Koji Uehara, and left-handers Michael Gonzalez and Darren Oliver.
