2018 NLCS: Brewers Replace Keon Broxton With Xavier Cedeno On Active Roster For Matchup With Dodgers

Just like the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Milwaukee Brewers opted for 13 position players and 12 pitchers on their active roster for the National League Championship Series, and included one change from the first round.


Rather than again carry Keon Broxton, he was not included on the NLCS in favor of relief pitcher Xavier Cedeno. The Dodgers acquired the left-hander in April 2015 from the Washington Nationals in exchange for cash considerations. But not long after he was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays for cash.

He spent three seasons with the Rays, then began the 2018 campaign with the Chicago White Sox. Over 15 games with the Brewers, Cedeno went 2-0 with a 2.48 ERA and 1.26 WHIP.

Complete breakdown of the Brewers’ NLCS roster included below, with players listed alphabetically in each category.

Starting pitchers (4): Jhoulys Chacin, Gio Gonzalez, Wade Miley, Junior Guerra

Relief pitchers (8): Corbin Burnes, Xavier Cedeno, Josh Hader, Jeremy Jeffress, Corey Knebel, Freddy Peralta, Joakim Soria, Brandon Woodruff

Catchers (2): Erik Kratz, Manny Pina

Infielders (6): Jesus Aguilar, Orlando Arcia, Mike Moustakas, Hernan Perez, Jonathan Schoop, Travis Shaw
