UPDATED: MAT is in! CRob is in! The #Nats post-season roster is set!

The official post-season roster has not is released. Dusty Baker and Mike Rizzo have set their post-season roster, and it will be released tomorrow by 10AM unless there is some late evening posting of it.

We have assembled what we believe is the post-season roster while using some of the rumors that have circulated today such as Brian Goodwin and Sean Burnett being left off the roster while making an assumption about Michael Taylor and  leaving Yusmeiro Petit off the roster. We also left off Mat Latos and A.J. Cole.

This is our post-season roster:

Starters (might not be the exact order):

  1. Max Scherzer
  2. Gio Gonzalez
  3. Tanner Roark
  4. Joe Ross

Starting position players for Game 1 (not the actual line-up):

  1. Trea Turner CF
  2. Jayson Werth LF
  3. Daniel Murphy 2B
  4. Anthony Rendon 3B
  5. Bryce Harper RF
  6. Ryan Zimmerman 1B
  7. Pedro Severino C
  8. Danny Espinosa SS


1. Reynaldo Lopez RHP
2. Sammy Solis LHP
3. Marc Rzepczynski LHP
4. Oliver Perez LHP
5. Blake Treinen RHP
6. Shawn Kelley RHP
7. Mark Melancon RHP


1. Jose Lobaton
2. Stephen Drew
3. Wilmer Difo
4. Chris Heisey
5.  Clint Robinson
6. Michael Taylor

Updated 10/7/16 6:45AM: From a source, the Nationals will be taking extra players who are not on the official post-season roster and keeping some with the team and some will work-out together at the P-Nats Stadium. Sean Burnett, Yusmeiro Petit, and Matt Belisle will not be on the final roster, but will travel with the team to Los Angeles as the extra relievers in case of an injury while Mat Latos, A.J. Cole, Trevor Gott, Matt Grace and Rafael Martin will all work-out at the P-Nats Stadium on Friday and Saturday and then back to Nats Park when the team is on the road. Lucas Giolito’s season has finished, and he will head home. Extra position players will also work out at the P-Nats stadium and Jhonatan Solano will be the emergency 3rd catcher and not Spencer Kieboom even though he is on the 40 man roster.
