MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers made only one change to their roster for the World Series, adding lefty Scott Alexander in place of fellow left-hander Caleb Ferguson.

Alexander was left off the NLCS roster after only one appearance in the NLDS, tossing a perfect eighth inning in a Game 3 loss in Atlanta. The lefty appeared in 25 games, allowing 11 runs (10 earned) in 18 innings over the final two months of the season for the Dodgers.

The 22-year-old Ferguson was outstanding for the Dodgers as a reliever in 2018, going 7-1 with a 2.35 ERA in 38 13 innings over 26 appearances.

Ferguson appeared in four games in the NLCS, retiring four of the five batters he faced.

Boston made a change of their own, adding lefty Drew Pomeranz in place of Brandon Workman. Pomeranz makes it as another lefty option, but hasn’t pitched since September 30.

The Dodgers and Red Sox will play Game 1 Tuesday night at 5:09 p.m. PT on FOX.
