World Baseball Classic
Three Dodgers minor league pitchers will take part in a qualifying round for the 2021 World Baseball Classic, representing Nicaragua, Germany, and South Africa.
Kenley Jansen will join the Netherlands for the World Baseball Classic championship round at Dodger Stadium, which begins Monday in Los Angeles.
Adrian Gonzalez one of 24 former All-Stars confirmed to participate in 2017 World Baseball Classic. We check in on other potential Dodgers who might participate in the event, including Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager, Yasiel Puig, Kenta Maeda and Alex Verdugo.
Dodgers prospect Alex Verdugo had an RBI double for Team Mexico, alongside teammate and fellow Dodger Adrian Gonzalez in an exhibition against Team Japan at the Tokyo Dome on Thursday. Fellow Dodger Kenta Maeda was in attendance as well.
Because the Dodgers shortstop was injured during World Baseball Classic play and will miss over 30 days, the club will get relief in the form of the WBC paying Ramirez his salary while on the disabled list, roughly $4 million worth.
