Glaus On, Green Off Cardinals' Postseason Roster
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Troy Glaus will be on the St. Louis Cardinals' roster for their first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Dodgers despite missing most of the season while rehabbing from shoulder surgery.

After a two-hour workout Monday that stressed fundamentals, manager Tony La Russa said Glaus showed him enough in the last few weeks to think he could be helpful off the bench. But the manager said Mark DeRosa would be his starting third baseman.

Infielder Khalil Greene, twice sidelined by social anxiety disorder and seldom used the last month or so, is not on the roster.

La Russa said he's going with 12 pitchers and 13 position players, with utilityman Joe Thurston making the roster. He has not determined the final bullpen spots yet.
