Earlier in the offseason it was reported that Yadier Molina will catch for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic and that Carlos Martínez is also expected to participate in the tournament for the Dominican Republic. Per Jon Morosi of MLB Network, another Cardinal might be added to the mix.
Matt Carpenter (@MattCarp13) has been offered a spot on @USABaseball for @WBCBaseball, source says. No formal decision yet. @Cardinals @MLB— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) December 27, 2016
No word from Carpenter confirming his participation, but as a fan of fun, I kinda hope he does it.
