The scheduled starters for tonight:
Brazil and Chinese starts unknown
Won-Jun Chang (Korea) vs. Yao-Hsun Yang (Taipei)
Now, more news:
R.A. Dickey is the starter for Team USA against Mexico. Ryan Vogelsong will start against Italy, and Derek Holland will likely go against the lefty-heavy Canadians. Gio Gonzalez will start the first game of the second round, should the USA advance. An additional note: Holland will stat tomorrow in an exhibition against the White Sox tomorrow, with relievers pitching against the Rockies on Wednesday. Joe Mauer will be the DH against Mexico while JP Arencibia will be behind the plate, since he’s been working with Dickey during the off-season and in spring training with the Blue Jays.
