October baseball is now officially in its fullest of swings. As a result, both the Houston Astros and New York Yankees have released their complete rosters for the American League Championship Series in advance of Friday evening’s Game 1 matchup at Minute Maid Park. With the Astros advancing by way of a dominant series win over the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees impressively squeaked by the defending American League Champion Cleveland Indians in five games.
It is also worth noting that New York initially toppled the Minnesota Twins in the American League Wild Card Game before ultimately upsetting the surging Indians.

While Houston will be turning to veteran left-hander and former American League Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel in Game 1, the “Bronx Bombers” have tabbed right-hander Masahiro Tanaka.
