The Rays have announced their 28-man roster for their wild card series with the Blue Jays, beginning Tuesday at Tropicana Field. Blake Snell will start Game 1, while Tyler Glasnow and Charlie Morton are scheduled to start the next two games (in Morton’s case, if a Game 3 if necessary).

The surprise move was the selection of prospect Shane McClanahan, whose first major-league game could come under the bright lights of the postseason. The Rays and Blue Jays are frequent opponents in the AL East, and the hard-throwing McClanahan represents a totally fresh weapon for the Rays to wield against Toronto hitters.

Yandy Diaz and Ji-Man Choi are both back from hamstring strains, as Diaz will see his first action since Aug. 31 and Choi back for the first time since Sept. 12. These returns add a potent lefty-righty combination to the Rays’ corner infield mix, though neither Diaz or Choi are starting in Game 1.
