Meanwhile, in Asia, WBC scouting has risen the level of espionage.
Jhoulys Chacin of the Rockies will be playing for Team Venezuela. Yan Gomes, however, will probably pass on playing for Team Brazil, as he tries to get a job with his new team, the Indians (he was still a Toronto Blue Jay back during qualifying).
More WBC stuff tomorrow…
