Rodney and Peralta named to Dominican WBC team, Molina to play for Puerto Rico
Rays closer Fernando Rodney said earlier this week he planned to play for the Dominican Republic team in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. Turns out, he will be taking teammate (and close friend) Joel Peralta with him.
Both are included on Dominican Republic provisional roster released today.
Catcher Jose Molina was named to the Puerto Rico roster. He will get to play there with his younger brother, Yadier, the Cardinals star.
