Cards NLDS roster coming together

Jenifer Langosch/

The Cardinals held an hour workout at Busch Stadium this afternoon, a day before opening up the NLDS against the Pirates. Manager Mike Matheny is holding off on naming his Games 3 and 4 starters and will have Shelby Miller and Michael Wacha available out of the bullpen for Game 1. That would seem to suggest that Joe Kelly will likely get the nod to start Game 3.

As for the roster, it is expected to look like this:

Pitchers (12): Adam Wainwright, Lance Lynn, Joe Kelly, Shelby Miller, Michael Wacha, Trevor Rosenthal, Kevin Siegrist, Carlos Martinez, Seth Maness, John Axford, Randy Choate, Edward Mujica

Position Players (13): Yadier Molina, Tony Cruz, Matt Adams, Matt Carpenter, Pete Kozma, Daniel Descalso, Kolten Wong, David Freese, Matt Holliday, Jon Jay, Carlos Beltran, Shane Robinson, Adron Chambers
