The rosters for the various WBC teams were announced yesterday, and eleven Dodgers' will a part of all the fun. Five players will be a part of Team Mexico: Adrián González, Vidal Nuno, prospect Alex Verdugo, yet-to-be-officially-signed Sergio Romo and Julio Urias. Kiké Hernandez will play for Puerto Rico, Rob Segedin and prospect Drew Maggi will represent Italy, non-roster invitee Ike Davis and prospect Dean Kremer will play for Israel and Kenley Jansen will join the Netherlands. Furthermore, both Urias and Jansen are part of the designated pitcher pool; which makes them inactive for the first round. On a side note, former Dodger closer Eric Gagné will play for Canada and recently traded pitcher Jose De Leon will join Puerto Rico.
