ST. LOUIS -- The Washington Nationals do not have pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the roster as expected for the NL Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cardinals went with one left-hander in the bullpen, Marc Rzepczynski. Players left off from the one-game wild card playoff were lefty Sam Freeman, catcher Bryan Anderson and infielder Ryan Jackson.

Other Nationals not included were infielder Mark DeRosa and lefty John Lannan.
