The Orioles will only have two lefties in their bullpen for the American League Division Series that starts tonight at 5:37 p.m. against the Detroit Tigers, and Ubaldo Jimenez is a surprise addition to the roster.
The Tigers don't have many left-handed bench options, so Orioles manager Buck Showalter apparently felt he'd rather have an extra right-hander that can provide some length in Jimenez.
Infielder Jimmy Paredes made the cut. Outfielder/baserunning specialist Quintin Berry didn't.
Also left off are left-handed relievers Brian Matusz and T.J. McFarland.
Rosters had to be submitted by 10 a.m., and the 25-man rosters must remain the same throughout the series, barring injury. Teams can select different rosters heading into the ALCS and World Series.
Here's the Orioles' roster:
Caleb Joseph and Nick Hundley
Steve Pearce, Jonathan Schoop, J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty, Kelly Johnson, Jimmy Paredes
