Curtis Granderson Left Off Dodgers 2017 World Series Roster for Brandon McCarthy

Vin Scully

One of those bumped from L.A's 25-man final group was veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson.

Roberts has given Granderson's roster spot to pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who hasn't appeared in a game since October 1.

Seager missed the National League Championship Series (NLCS) against the Chicago Cubs with a back injury.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are making their first World Series appearance in 29 years.

But manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that the team was "very confident" Seager was ready to return.

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.

Granderson played in the 2006 World Series with the Tigers, had three home runs in the World Series in 2015 with the New York Mets.

'Next question:' Newton ends press conference abruptly
Any adjustments and how they respond next week in Tampa Bay will be pivotal to determining the success of this year's team. Fast forward a few weeks and Cam Newton is acting a little petty on camera again at a press conference.

Granderson played in both the NLDS and NLCS, but went just 1-15 with eight strikeouts.

He just won't be appearing on the field in this World Series. One of the game's truly likable players, it's a shame that this may be how it ends for Granderson, but maybe his Dodgers teammates can pick him up and send him out as a champion. Ethier missed most of the season with a herniated disk in his back. Entering the postseason the concern was on how the bullpen would perform when they couldn't finish off the regular season on good note.

Ethier started two games against the Cubs, homering in a Game 3 win that gave the Dodgers a commanding three-games-to-none advantage in that series.

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

McCarthy, 33, is perhaps the biggest surprise of the Dodgers' roster adjustments.

McCarthy was 6-4 with a 3.98 ERA in 19 games (16 starts) during the regular season.

It's no real surprise that Granderson won't be playing against the Astros, as he was awful in spot duty for the Dodgers down the stretch, hitting.161/.288/.366 in 132 plate appearances.
