Four Red Sox On Provisional WBC Rosters

Four Red Sox players are slated to play in this spring's World Baseball Classic:
Shane Victorino    - USA
Alfredo Aceves     - USA Mexico
Xander Bogaerts    - Netherlands
Jose De La Torre   - Puerto Rico
Sox Prospects:
Bogaerts is part of a stacked infield for the Netherlands, which also features shortstops Jurickson Profar of the Texas Rangers and Andrelton Simmons of the Atlanta Braves. This means he is likely to play a position other than shortstop in the tournament, with early signs pointing to third base. Bogaerts, who also reportedly received a non-roster invitation to major league camp today, will report to Fort Myers by February 13 and then leave to join the Dutch National Team before pool play starts on March 2.
The WBC will run from March 2-19. Go Canada!
