Alumni Report – Wrap on the Caribbean Series & Australia, Addition to WBC Roster, & Lots of Roster Updates!

Lots to get to in this update.

In case you missed it last week, former Timber Rattlers pitcher Nick Bucci has been added to the Canadian Roster for the World Baseball Classic.  See this post on Rattler Radio for more information on the other Alumni on WBC Rosters.

Caribbean Series:
Mexico defeated the Dominican Republic 4-3 in 18 innings for the CS Championship

In Caribbean Series play since our last update, Efrain Nieves picked up a win as a starting pitcher for Puerto Rico on February 5.  His final stats in the Series: 1-0, 1.50ERA; 2g, 1gs; 6.0IP, 4H, R, ER, 2BB, 3K

Australia:
There were no Rattlers involved in the Claxton Shield Championship Series between Perth and Canberra.  However, in the effort to give some closure, Canberra swept Perth 2-0 in the best-of-three Final.  The Calvary won game two 7-6 and it looked like some fun.

Here endeth the Winter Leagues.

Now, Spring Training starts.

I went through the 40-man rosters and Non-Roster Invitees of all MLB teams to see where former Timber Rattlers (and a few ex-Foxes) are going to be starting their springs.
