The Boston Red Sox announced the team’s 25-man active roster for the 2013 World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals and manager John Farrell is sticking with southpaw Franlin Morales. Fellow-lefty Matt Thornton, who threw a simulated game at Fenway Park on Tuesday, was rumored to be taking Morales’ World Series roster spot after Morales struggled in Game 6 of the ALCS. Thornton was left off the ALDS and ALCS rosters and has appeared in three career playoff games, allowing two hits, two walks and striking out two in 3 1/3 innings. Morales has appeared in 11 career postseason contests and sports a 7.71 ERA. Check out the roster below. Pitchers (11): Craig Breslow, Clay Buchholz, Ryan Dempster, Felix Doubront, John Lackey, Jon Lester, Franklin Morales, Jake Peavy, Junichi Tazawa, Koji Uehara, Brandon Workman. Catchers (2): David Ross, Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Infielders (6): Xander Bogaerts, Stephen Drew, Will Middlebrooks, Mike Napoli, David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia. Outfielders (6): Quintin Berry, Mike Carp, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jonny Gomes, Daniel Nava, Shane Victorino. Filed under: Boston Red Sox, Headlines, John Beattie, World Series
