Torres added to Venezuela WBC squad
LHP Alex Torres is the latest Rays player to be named to the upcoming World Baseball Classic, named Thursday to the Venezuelan squad.
Torres had a rough 2012 season at Durham, but was said to pitch better in winter ball.
The Rays now have five players headed to the tournament: Fernando Rodney (Dominican Republic), Ben Zobrist (U.S.), Jose Molina (Puerto Rico), Cesar Ramos (Mexico) and Torres (Venezuela). They also have two minor-leaguers playing for Brazil.
