The roster includes reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander and 2012 Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera/ ALCS MVP Delmon Young will will play left field in Game 1 with no designated hitter in the NL park. Young batted .353 (6-for-17) with two home runs and six RBIs in the ALCS, recording the game-winning RBI in all four contests. Verlander is looking to remain perfect this postseason as he was dominant in his first three starts, allowing 10 hits and two runs over 24 1/3 innings with five walks and 25 strikeouts. Amazingly, Zito, was kept off San Francisco's postseason roster during its run to the 2010 world championship.
