Salazar Makes World Series Roster

Tuesday is the day: Game 1 of the World Series in Cleveland featuring the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs at Progressive Field. 

As any Indians fan can tell you, the team has seen its share of injuries, especially in the later part of the season. One of those injuries was starting pitcher Danny Salazar. He hasn't pitched for the Tribe since leaving the game back on September 9th against the Minnesota Twins with a strained right forearm. 

On Tuesday, ahead of the start of the World Series, the Indians released their official World Series roster. The good news; it included Right-Handed Pitcher Danny Salazar. To make room for Salazar, the Indians removed RHP Cody Anderson from the WS roster. Over the past weekend, Indians Manager Terry Francona said his starting pitching rotation for the World Series is "to be announced" following Game 3. Corey Kluber gets the start in Game 1 Tuesday, and Games 2 and 3 are to be decided between Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin. Francona said, of Bauer who is healing from a finger injury that left him an early-exit in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Blue Jays, he wants to give Bauer as much time as possible.

The official World Series roster for the Cleveland Indians is below:
