Granderson, Cano headline MLB roster for tour of TaiwanBy
Via Sweeny Murti, Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano are headlining a team of MLB players that will tour Taiwan from November 1st-6th, and compete against the Chinese Taipei national team. MLB has done oversees tours like this for a long time, mostly involving Japan.
I haven’t seen the full roster yet, but based on what I’ve been able to gather on Twitter, some other players that will make the trip include Jeremy Guthrie, Dillon Gee, Ross Detwiler, Erick Aybar, Jeff Mathis (hah), Logan Morrison, Emilio Bonifacio, and former Yankees Jose Veras and Mark Melancon. I’m happy Grandy and Cano are going, but I’m even happier that none of the Yankees pitchers are.
