Seager and right-handed pitcher Brandon McCarthy were added to the roster; Granderson and utility player Kyle Farmer, ?who were on the club's National League Championship Series roster, were left off this time around. The 23-year-old batted.295 during the regular season with 22 home runs and 77 runs batted in. If the Dodgers win it all, Granderson, 36, will still be awarded a World Series ring. He went 3 for 11 with four walks in the NL Division Series against Arizona, but tweaked his back during a slide in Game 3.

But manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that the team was "very confident" Seager was ready to return.

The 2017 World Series kicks off today and the Dodgers are playing for the first time in nearly three decades - so we want to know how you're planning to watch the momentous occasion.

Charlie Culberson did well while filling in for Seager during the NLCS.

The Dodgers were hoping for a power surge out of Granderson, but he wasn't able to supply it. The 6-foot-7 right-hander has been restricted to simulated games and bullpen sessions since the regular season ended, but could become a useful multi-inning option out of the bullpen. Granderson has struggled this postseason, going 1 for 15 with eight strikeouts.
