Just after I published this article about the Cubs lineup for this afternoon’s Wild Card Series Game 1, the team announced their 28-man roster for the series. Timing’s everything, right?

The only surprises are the additions of Ildemaro Vargas, who was activated off the 10-day injured list, and Josh Phegley as a third catcher. To make room for Phegley on the 40-man roster, lefthander Josh Osich was designated for assignment.

Here are the 28 Cubs eligible for this series.
