Astros Newest Addition To Roster Finds Himself In Unique Situation

If you can't beat them, join them.

Well, actually he did beat them...and then joined them.

The Houston Astros have added pitcher Will Smith to their World Series roster. 

It's an interesting situation for Smith, because he recorded the final out of the World Series against the Astros last season. Now, he's pitching for the team, hoping for a similar result. Good thing the Astros aren't playing the Atlanta Braves again, as that would make things even more interesting.
Smith takes the place of right-hander Seth Martinez on the roster. 

It's the only change for the Astros from the ALCS, but it's a notable one. With potent left-handed hitters like Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber, Smith figures to see some opportunities in key spots during this season. 

The thirty-three-year-old posted a 3.27 ERA in 24 appearances for the Astros after coming over from the Braves, but has yet to make his 2022 postseason debut.
