Curtis Granderson left off Dodgers' World Series roster

Granderson was on Los Angeles' 25-man roster for the National League Division Series and National League Championship Series.

After previously considering keeping Granderson on the bench for the World Series, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts decided he couldn't afford to have the slumping vet in the lineup.

The Dodgers' roster for the World Series was announced via a news release Tuesday morning, in advance of Game 1 later in the day at Dodger Stadium against the Houston Astros.

Granderson was essentially displaced on the Dodgers' World Series roster by All-Star shortstop Corey Seager, who was sidelined for the NLCS with a back injury. Seager added that he took live batting practice on Sunday to "check the last box" in his recovery.

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.

This would have marked Granderson's third appearance in the Fall Classic.

While not quite back to pre-Hurricane Harvey levels, gas prices continue to work their way down locally and around the country. Those were the days - or years, to be precise - when gas prices routinely were above $3.00 a gallon.

The need that Granderson was meant to fill was otherwise addressed by the return to health of veteran Andre Ethier, the longest-tenured player on the Dodgers' roster.

The 2017 World Series kicks off today and the Dodgers are playing for the first time in nearly three decades - so we want to know how you're planning to watch the momentous occasion. He appeared in 20 regular-season games.

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

Ideally, Seager would be able to play shortstop for the entire series, but with Games 3-5 scheduled for an American League park in Houston, the designated hitter is also a possibility.

Farmer was a luxury, a right-handed hitting catcher who gave Roberts the flexibility of using Barnes and Grandal in the same game.
