Phillies go with 11 pitchers

Posted: September 30, 2011

After some debate, the Phillies have decided to carry 11 pitchers for the National League Division Series against the Cardinals.

The Phillies announced their roster this afternoon.

Manager Charlie Manuel would not definitively say that was the plan at his news conference earlier today, but gave that indication.

The 11 pitchers are righthanders Joe Blanton, Roy Halladay, Kyle Kendrick, Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson, Roy Oswalt, Michael Stutes, Vance Worley and lefthanders Antonio Bastardo, Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee.

The Phillies will carry six infielders in Ryan Howard, Michael Martinez, Placido Polanco, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley and Wilson Valdez; six outfielders in Ben Francisco, Ross Gload, Raúl Ibañez, John Mayberry Jr., Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino; and catchers Carlos Ruiz and Brian Schneider.
