Diamondbacks, Rangers announce 2023 World Series rosters

Oct 27, 2023, 9:28 AM | Updated: 3:14 pm

The Arizona Diamondbacks will lose a 13th arm in place of a lefty bat off the bench in the World Series against the Texas Rangers.

Slade Cecconi is off the roster after making a pair of inning-burning appearances in 10-0 and 6-1 losses to the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLCS.

Infielder Jace Peterson replaces the reliever. Peterson made two appearances in the NLDS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, seeing one at-bat.

Otherwise, Arizona’s roster for the World Series looks as it did for the NLCS.

The Rangers will carry the same roster into the World Series as they did in the ALCS.
