After four division series losses in seven years, the Nationals finally advanced to the championship series with a dramatic Game 5 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday. They’ll face off against the Cardinals with mostly the same roster, although they’ll be without closer Daniel Hudson for at least one game — he has been placed on the paternity list — while Victor Robles and Kurt Suzuki are active but out of the Game 1 starting lineup due to injuries. Roenis Elias, who hasn’t pitched since September 5 due to a hamstring injury, and Javy Guerra have been added to the roster. Hunter Strickland did not make the cut.

Here’s how every member of the Nationals’ 2019 NLCS roster was originally acquired. The team’s full RosterResource Depth Chart and Payroll pages are also available as a resource.
