Shortstop Carlos Correa, a recent acquisition of the Minnesota Twins, stated that he intends to represent Puerto Rico in the next Classic World Baseball Cup (CMB), scheduled for March 2023.
The stellar infielder was part of the "Team Rubio" that achieved runner-up in the last edition of the WBC (2017), after losing in the final against the United States.
Carlos Correa, 27, batted .333, with nine RBIs and ten runs scored.
"It's a dream for me"
For his part, José Miranda, also a member of the Twins, will play his first WBC, an opportunity that fills him with pride.
“It is a dream for me. I can't wait to share ground with Correa and the rest of the team," said the 24-year-old.
The other player who showed in the last few hours his desire to wear the colors of the "Isla del Encanto" team is pitcher Marcus Stroman.
Puerto Rico, twice runner-up in the event (2013 and 2017), is part of Group D along with Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and Israel.
