Angels Heavily Represented Throughout WBC

UPDATE 5:50pm: I'm seeing conflicting reports about the Lackey/Saunders switch. Lyle Spencer on angelsbaseball.com says Saunders is going in Lackey's place, but all the rosters still have Lackey on them.

 

The 45-man World Baseball Classic provisional rosters were announced today, and the Angels have 16 players representing 9 different countries in the Classic. Here's the breakdown:

USA: Brian Fuentes, Scot Shields, Joe Saunders

Dominican Republic: Jose Arredondo, Vlad Guerrero, Ervin Santana

Puerto Rico: Luis Figueroa

Venezuela: Maicer Izturis, Juan Rivera

Australia: Adam Morrissey, Rich Thompson

Italy: Mike Napoli, Kasey Olenberger

Netherlands: Hainley Statia

Mexico: Freddy Sandoval

Panama: Kevin Ramos

One curious omission is John Lackey, who was tabbed a few weeks ago as one of the starting pitchers for Team USA. There has been no formal word as to why Lackey is now unable to compete. Saunders is Lackey's replacement.

Anybody else worried about our guys getting hurt?
