The New York Yankees and Houston Astros officially unveil their full 25-man rosters for the much-anticipated 2019 ALCS.

“Next Man Up” is the mantra for the 2019 New York Yankees; yet, luckily, the idea didn’t apply to the ALCS roster.

Manager Aaron Boone unveiled his roster on Saturday while featuring a couple of new additions.

Both CC Sabathia and Aaron Hicks are included. The veteran duo that didn’t get a swing at it in the NLDS will now be pushed into action against the Houston Astros.

Catchers: Austin Romine, Gary Sanchez

Infielders: Edwin Encarnacion, Didi Gregorius, DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres, Gio Urshela

Outfielders: Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks, Aaron Judge, Cameron Maybin, Giancarlo Stanton

Pitchers: Zack Britton, Luis Cessa, Aroldis Chapman, Chad Green, J.A. Happ, Tommy Kahnle, Jonathan Loaisiga, Tyler Lyons, Adam Ottavino, James Paxton, CC Sabathia, Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka

Obviously, the Astros also announced their ALCS roster.

Game 1 of the 2019 ALCS between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros is set for Saturday night. First pitch is scheduled for 8:08 p.m. ET.
