MLB

HOUSTON (AP)The Miami Marlins left outfielder Starling Marte off their NL Division Series roster against the Atlanta Braves because of a hand injury.

Marte fractured his left hand in Miami’s first wild-card game against the Chicago Cubs on Sept. 30, though the Marlins had hoped he would be able to play in this series. But manager Don Mattingly said Marte worked out on Monday and they didn’t feel comfortable that he would be able to play effectively in this series because of the injury.

Miami will carry 14 pitchers and 14 position players in this series, adding right-hander Nick Vincent and left-hander Dan Castano to the roster.

The Braves went with 15 pitchers and 13 position players after their wild-card roster had 13 pitchers and 15 position players. Atlanta added right-handers Bryce Wilson and Huascar Ynoa to the roster.
