Rollins on the roster for Team USA

January 17, 2013

Team USA's roster for the 2013 World Baseball Classic has been released today and shortstop Jimmy Rollins is the only Phillie on the team.

The team, managed by Joe Torre, also features former Phillies Shane Victorino and Larry Bowa.

Victorino, now with the  Boston Red Sox, was in the Phillies' outfield from 2005 up until 2012 when he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the trade deadline.

Bowa, now an analyst for MLB Network, managed the Phillies from 2001 to 2004.

Rollins also made Team USA's roster for the last World Baseball Classic in 2009.

Outfielder Tyson Gillies, infielder Pete Orr and relief pitcher Phillipe Aumont are players within the Phillies' system that made the cut for Team Canada.
