Mets playoffs: Mets announce NLDS roster vs. Dodgers

No surprises here. The big news is that Steven Matz feels good and is ready to go if needed.

The Mets have announced their official 25-man NLDS roster for their series against the Dodgers. The most salient news is that Steven Matz feels great and is expected to start Game 4—if needed—on Tuesday at Citi Field. As expected, Juan Uribe is not on the roster as he continues to recover from a chest injury. As expected, Kirk Nieuwenhuis is on the roster in Uribe's place.

There aren't too many surprises here. You could reasonably argue that Sean Gilmartin is more useful to the Mets in the playoffs than Jon Niese is, or that Dilson Herrera has more versatility than Kirk Nieuwenhuis, but in general this is about as good a 25-man roster as the Mets could roll with in Uribe's absence.

Here is the full NLDS roster.
