The D-backs are investing in the upcoming World Baseball Classic fairly heavily, lending both of their fields for the first round of the tournament and sending six players to participate for assorted teams. These players (and their assigned teams) are as follows:
David Hernandez, right-handed pitcher, will play for Mexico.
Heath Bell, right-handed pitcher, and Willie Bloomquist, utility player, will both playing for Team USA.
Nelson Figueroa, right-handed pitcher, will play for Puerto Rico’s team.
Miguel Montero, center fielder, and Gerardo Parra, outfielder, will play for Venezuela.
As to their schedules, Hernandez will be especially busy, as he has three game days scheduled in a row. His first opponent is the Italian team on March 7 at Salt River Fields, while the very next day he faces his teammates on Team USA at Chase Field.
