The Washington Nationals finalized their 25-man roster for the World Series Tuesday afternoon, making only one change from their National League Championship Series roster.

The Nationals stuck with a seven-man bullpen but added Joe Ross in place of Austin Voth.

Ross has not played this postseason and went 4-4 during the regular season with a career-high 5.48 ERA. He started the year in the bullpen but eventually transitioned to a No. 5 starter option, though Washington will not need a No. 5 starter in the World Series.

Voth, who missed the cut for the series, similarly was a spot starter for Washington relegated to the bullpen for the NLDS and NLCS, but he was never called on to pitch. Both Ross and Voth are right-handers.

The rest of the roster carries over from the NLCS. Here is the full breakdown:

Pitchers: Patrick Corbin, Sean Doolittle, Javy Guerra, Daniel Hudson, Tanner Rainey, Fernando Rodney, Joe Ross, Aníbal Sánchez, Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, Wander Suero

Catchers: Yan Gomes, Kurt Suzuki

Infielders: Matt Adams, Asdrúbal Cabrera, Brian Dozier, Howie Kendrick, Anthony Rendon, Trea Turner, Ryan Zimmerman

Outfielders: Adam Eaton, Gerardo Parra, Victor Robles, Juan Soto, Michael A. Taylor

Update: The Nationals released their lineup for Game 1, with Kendrick taking the designated hitter’s spot as expected, Cabrera at second base and Zimmerman at first.
