BOSTON (CBS) - The Boston Red Sox didn’t make any changes to their roster for the 2013 World Series, which the team announced on Wednesday morning.

Boston kept the same 25-man roster they used for the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers, with Franklin Morales remaining in the bullpen despite an ineffective inning against the Tigers in Game 6.
