Rollins, Vicotrino on Team USA

The rosters for the World Baseball Classic have been released. The Classic is supposed to be the "Olympics" for star players. All in all, eleven Phillies players will play in the Classic. Although, five of them are minor league players. Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino will both star for team USA. Carlos Ruiz will be on the Panamanian Team, and Matt Stairs will be on the Canadian team.

Team Japan won the Classic in 2006, so they are the defending champions. The American team is stacked with stars like Derek Jeter, David Wright, and Rollins. This Classic should be very competitive. I you want to see the full rosters click here.
