The Reds are out wit their 25-man roster for the NLDS with one exception. We still don't know if it's Edmonds or Juan Francisco for that final spot. It will be Edmonds if he's healthy enough to play.
No real surprises. The Reds did keep all five starters on the roster (with Wood and Bailey in the pen). They might have considered leaving one off (probably Bailey because he's not a lefty) but I can't argue with the idea that their presence will allow Dusty a quick hook, if necessary.
I'm sure guys like Valaika, Maloney, and Jordan Smith, who made real contributions to this team, are disappointed, but this looks like the best 25 guys.
