Javy Guerra decided to play for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. That was his intention any way. We heard last week Javy Guerra would be a late addition to Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic after Cleveland closer Chris Perez left the roster due to injury. It was made official yesterday afternoon when Guerra announced he had to drop out because of liability concerns involving his shoulder. Guerra said that he is still dealing with issues resulting from his offseason shoulder surgery. Fine with me. I gotta admit that I’m glad Guerra is exercising on the side of caution here. Every year we see players hurt in the WBC, so not risking further injury won’t bother me one bit. Though Guerra is out, the Dodgers still have Ronald Belisario, Hanley Ramirez, Felipe Burin, Angel Castro, Luis Cruz, Adrian Gonzalez, Nick Punto, Mario Santiago, and Andres Santiago representing their fellow countries in the World Baseball Classic.
