We’ve got the list of the 15 New York Mets that’ll be playing for their countries in the World Baseball Classic. Most players will start leaving the Mets at the end of the week to begin working out with their teams next Monday. Here’s the list of Mets:

Major League Roster

Jose Reyes- Dominican Republic

Oliver Perez- Mexico

Pedro Feliciano, Alex Cora, Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado- Puerto Rico

J.J. Putz, David Wright- United States

Francisco Rodriguez- Venezuela

Minor League Rosters

Stefan Welch- Australia

Shawn Bowman- Canada

Elmer Dessens- Mexico

Ruben Tejada- Panama

Nelson Figueroa, Jesus Feliciano- Puerto Rico

Mets fans can breath a collective sigh of relief that Johan Santana isn’t playing for Venezuela in this tournament. He’s just too valuable to the Mets to risk injury in a tournament like this. The Mets should keep him in a protective bubble when he isn’t on the field.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
