Ross Detwiler Departs For World Baseball Classic

Ross Detwiler leaves Nationals camp today to join Team USA. Detwiler is one of two players representing the Nationals on the American team, joining fellow left-hander Gio Gonzalez on the pitching staff.

The Nationals are well-represented throughout the tournament. Roger Bernadina has already left camp to join the Netherlands, and has been a big contributor thus far.

Danny Espinosa was set to play on Team Mexico, though he pulled out last month to focus on rehabbing his shoulder.

Former National Chien-Ming Wang (2010-2012) is set to pitch for his native Taiwan, and will look to impress big-league scouts in hopes of latching on with a team later this Spring.

We here at All Over The Hill will continue to bring you coverage of all the Nationals playing in the World Baseball Classic, and are thrilled to be joined by Terry and Tyler of Sharkadina.com as guest writers covering Roger Bernadina and the Netherlands for us!
