The Red Sox have announced their 25-man roster for the World Series.

It is as follows:

PITCHERS (11): Matt Barnes, Ryan Brasier, Nathan Eovaldi, Heath Hembree, Joe Kelly, Craig Kimbrel, Drew Pomeranz, Rick Porcello, David Price, Eduardo Rodriguez, Chris Sale

CATCHERS (3): Sandy Leon, Blake Swihart, Christian Vázquez

INFIELDERS (7): Xander Bogaerts, Rafael Devers, Brock Holt, Ian Kinsler, Mitch Moreland, Eduardo Núñez, Steve Pearce

OUTFIELDERS (4): Andrew Benintendi, Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., J.D. Martinez

There is one change from the ALCS, as Pomeranz has been added, while Brandon Workman has been removed. The Dodgers have a lot of lefty hitters, which is likely the main reason for the move.

Steven Wright remains off the roster following re-injuring his knee in the ALDS.

Game 1 between the Red Sox and Dodgers is set for Tuesday night.
