New, 5 comments

Come on down Collin McHugh, you’ve been selected for the ALCS roster.

MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers Andrew Dieb-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Astros have set their 2017 American League Championship Series roster ahead of the matchup with the New York Yankees. The biggest change for the Astros is the removal of infielder Tyler White and the addition of Collin McHugh.

McHugh was not selected to be a starter for the ALDS against the Red Sox with Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander, Brad Peacock, Charlie Morton getting starts instead. With the lack of changes to the roster, expect Houston to contiue to use those four for the pitching rotation.

Both teams are going with 12 pitchers, while Houston is keeping three catchers on the roster.

The following players made the Astros 25-man roster for the ALCS:
