Baldelli Out; Anderson & Gathright In

Rocco Baldelli will not be active for the ALDS with the Angels, due to his hip flexor problem. He will be eligible for the ALCS should the Red Sox advance.

That means that Brian Anderson and Joey Gathright will be on the roster. Anderson has a terrific glove but absolutely no stick. Neither are a big threat off the bench, so Baldelli's presence will be missed.

Here is the final Red Sox ALDS roster:

Jon Lester; Josh Beckett; Clay Buchholz; Daisuke Matsuzaka; Paul Byrd; Hideki Okajima; Daniel Bard; Billy Wagner; Ramon Ramirez; Takashi Saito; Jonathan Papelbon

Victor Martinez; Jason Varitek; David Ortiz; Kevin Youkilis; Dustin Pedroia; Jed Lowrie; Alex Gonzalez; Mike Lowell; Jason Bay; Jacoby Ellsbury; J.D. Drew; Brian Anderson; Joey Gathright; Casey Kotchman.
