Saturday night, the best-of-seven NLCS between the Mets and Cubs begins at Citi Field in New York (8 pm ET on TBS). It's a matchup of exciting young pitching against exciting young hitting. This promises to be a very entertaining series.

Both clubs announced their NLCS rosters Saturday morning, each with some slight changes from the NLDS. Here is the Cubs roster:

PITCHERS (11): Jake Arrieta, Trevor Cahill, Jason Hammel, Justin Grimm, Kyle Hendricks, Jon Lester, Clayton Richard, Fernando Rodney, Hector Rondon, Pedro Strop, Travis Wood

CATCHERS (2): Miguel Montero, David Ross

INFIELDERS (5): Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, Starlin Castro, Anthony Rizzo, Tommy La Stella

OUTFIELDERS (7): Quintin Berry, Chris Denorfia, Chris Coghlan, Dexter Fowler, Austin Jackson, Kyle SchwarberJorge Soler

Shortstop Addison Russell is out with a "moderate" hamstring and has been replaced on the roster by Berry, a pinch-running specialist. Berry is 32 for 33 in stolen base attempts as a big leaguer, including the postseason. Baez has taken over as the starting shortstop.

Now here is the roster for the Mets:

PITCHERS (11): Tyler Clippard, Bartolo Colon, Jacob deGrom, Jeurys Familia, Sean Gilmartin, Matt Harvey, Steven Matz, Jonathon Niese, Addison Reed, Hansel Robles, Noah Syndergaard

CATCHERS (2): Travis d'Arnaud, Kevin Plawecki

INFIELDERS (6): Lucas Duda, Wilmer Flores, Kelly Johnson, Daniel Murphy, Matt Reynolds, David Wright

OUTFIELDERS (6): Yoenis Cespedes, Michael Conforto, Michael Cuddyer, Curtis Granderson, Juan Lagares, Kirk Nieuwenhuis

Gilmartin replaces Erik Goeddel on the roster. Goeddel allowed four hits and did not retire a batter in the NLCS. Reynolds replaced Ruben Tejada on the NLDS roster following Game 2. Tejada suffered a broken leg on Chase Utley's brutal take-out slide and is done for the postseason.

Addison Russell in not on the NLCS roster due to a hamstring injury.
