He worked out daily at the club's ballpark in hopes of returning, should the Dodgers advance to their first World Series in 29 years, which happened when Los Angeles beat the Chicago Cubs in Game 5 at Wrigley Field last Thursday.

The numbers bear out manager Dave Roberts" decision, but it's still a bummer for Granderson, who has played in two World Series-2006 as a member of the Tigers and "15 with the Mets-but hasn't won a ring. He batted.295 with 22 homers and 77 RBIs in 145 regular-season games. Not only is he back on the roster, he is starting shortstop and batting sixth in Game 1.

The Dodgers made two changes to their 25-man roster for the World Series, adding pitcher Brandon McCarthy and shortstop Corey Seager, and removing outfielder Curtis Granderson and catcher/infielder Kyle Farmer.

Roberts has said it's possible Seager will be used as a designated hitter on the road when the games shift to Houston on Friday. Granderson has struggled this postseason, going 1 for 15 with eight strikeouts.

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.

Farmer was a luxury, a right-handed hitting catcher who gave Roberts the flexibility of using Barnes and Grandal in the same game. He appeared in 20 regular-season games.

McCarthy, 34, went 6-4 with a 3.98 earned-run average during the regular season.

McCarthy's final three outings were as a reliever, when he posted a 6.00 ERA over six innings.

Game 1 between the Dodgers and the Astros is Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
