MLB: Game One-San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Padres finally released their 28-man roster this morning and things are finally heading down the stretch to the team’s first game of the National League Divisional Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The changes to the active roster include three player swaps, with OF Greg Allen, SP Mike Clevinger, and LHP prospect Ryan Weathers replacing RHP Dan Altavilla, IF Greg Garcia, and IF Jorge Mateo.

On top of the above changes, the Friars also made the announcement that Clevinger will be the team’s opening-game starter this evening. It will be the first time Clevinger attempts to pitch more than one inning since early September.

Here’s the breakdown of the club’s current roster:

OF(5): Greg Allen, Trent Grisham, Wil Myers, Jurickson Profar, Tommy Pham

IF(5): Jake Cronenworth, Eric Hosmer, Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado, Mitch Moreland

C(3): Luis Campusano, Austin Nola, Jason Castro

LHP(5): Tim Hill, Adrian Morejon, Drew Pomeranz, Matt Strahm, Ryan Weathers

RHP(10): Austin Adams, Mike Clevinger, Craig Stammen, Trevor Rosenthal, Garrett Richards, Luis Patino, Emilio Pagan, Chris Paddack, Pierce Johnson, Zach Davies
