Our man WKRP predicted the Wild Card roster this morning, and he almost nailed it. Instead of bringing 3 catchers, the Reds opted to add Logan Ondrusek and leave Corky Miller off the roster for tonight's game.

From C. Trent, your wild card roster against the Pirates is as follows:

Pitchers (10)
Aroldis Chapman
Johnny Cueto
Zach Duke
J.J. Hoover
Mike Leake
Sam LeCure
Sean Marshall
Logan Ondrusek
Manny Parra
Alfredo Simon

Position players (15)
Jay Bruce
Shin-Soo Choo
Zack Cozart
Todd Frazier
Billy Hamilton
Ryan Hanigan
Jack Hannahan
Chris Heisey
Cesar Izturis
Ryan Ludwick
Devin Mesoraco
Xavier Paul
Brandon Phillips
Derrick Robinson
Joey Votto

As others have noted, the Reds can (and likely will) change the roster should they advance to the divisional series with the Cardinals.

There aren't any real surprises here. There's no way the Reds would leave Billy Hamilton off the roster given the lack of need for multiple starting pitchers. The question now becomes, what does the lineup look like? Any way you slice it, someone on this team needs to start hitting. It's a good time for Superman.

Playoffs! WOOO!!!
