MLB confirmed Robinson Cano will play for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic next spring. Here’s the list of 23 players who are confirmed for the tournament so far. With Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, CC Sabathia, and Mariano Rivera all coming off surgery and Hiroki Kuroda already pulling out of the event, there’s a chance Cano will be the team’s only big league WBC representative. I suppose David Robertson could crack the Team USA bullpen, but that’s really it.
