BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have decided to carry 11 pitchers in their AL Division Series against Detroit, but have excluded left-handers Brian Matusz and T.J. McFarland.

Manager Buck Showalter will also do without fleet-footed Quintin Berry and infielder Alexi Casilla.

Ubaldo Jimenez, who struggled for much of the season, is on a pitching staff that includes right-handed relievers Kevin Gausman and Brad Brach.

Matusz went 2-3 with a 3.48 ERA in 63 games this season. He was used mostly against left-handed batters.

McFarland was used mostly as a long reliever. He appeared in 37 games, going 4-2 with a 2.76 ERA.

The best-of-five series begins Thursday.
