Wade Davis, Brandon Finnegan, Jason Frasor, Kelvin Herrera and closer Greg Holland round out the relievers.

Manager Ned Yost is going with 16 position players.

Salvador Perez and Erik Kratz are the catchers, while Billy Butler, Christian Colon, Alcides Escobar, Eric Hosmer, Omar Infante, Mike Moustakas and Jayson Nix are the infielders. Nori Aoki, Lorenzo Cain, Jarrod Dyson, Alex Gordon, Terrance Gore, Raul Ibanez and Josh Willingham are the outfielders.

The Royals can change the roster for the Division Series if they win Tuesday.
