It was learned through today’s game broadcast that Shane Victorino has been named to the United States team of the World Baseball Classic. He’s replacing the injured Grady Sizemore.

Victorino will join Jimmy Rollins on the U.S. team. Carlos Ruiz is on Team Panama, and JC Romero is on Team Puerto Rico. Three minor leaguers (Brad Harman, Drew Naylor, Joel Naughton) are on Team Australia.

    Good for Vic, he should play the “Bruntlett” role for Team USA.

    Great news… as long as he doesn’t get injured! It will be good to watch him on TV… I’m predicting a USA vs. Dominican Republic final

    It is kind of a shame that he wont be able to play with the team and build that chemistry that works so well

  • Can you provide more information on this for the rest of us Tribe fans?
