Soriano and Schierholtz make NLDS roster, Detwiler and Hairston do not

The Nationals' Natonal League Division Series roster has been announced and features 12 pitchers (three left-handed, nine right-handed) and 13 position players (two catchers, seven infielders, four outfielders).

There had been some question as to whether or not reliever Rafael Soriano would make the NLDS roster. The veteran right-hander has indeed made the Nats' group of 25. Instead, the Nationals left Ross Detwiler off the roster. He played an important role in keeping the Nationals in the 2012 NLDS versus the Cardinals.

Nate Schierholtz made the roster instead of Scott Hairston, adding one more left-handed bat to the bench in the outfield.

Here is the Nationals' full roster:
