Scherzer has been sidelined since Sept. 12 due to a shoulder strain. The three-time Cy Young winner posted a 4-2 record with a 3.20 ERA and 10.6 K/9 after the Rangers acquired him before the trade deadline from the New York Mets.

Gray has yet to pitch in the postseason this year after landing on the injured list near the end of the regular season with forearm tightness. The 31-year-old made 29 regular-season starts for the Rangers, posting a 4.12 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 157 1/3 innings.

Pitchers Brock Burke and Matt Bush were left off the roster to make room for Scherzer and Gray.
