Those active DPs can be replaced at the beginning of each of the next two rounds, but only by another DP Matt Festa Italy Jersey. Once a DP has been replaced, he cannot return to the active roster for a subsequent round. Using Team Mexico as an example, Luis Mendoza and Osuna are the active DPs for the first round of pool play, so they can be replaced on the roster before the second round or the championship round, but only by one of the team other DPs. And if a DP joins for the second round, he can be replaced for the championship round, but only by another DP. Edgar Gonzalez, the older brother of the Dodgers first baseman, will manage Team Mexico, which has not advanced beyond the second round in any of the three previous editions of the World Baseball Classic. :: 2017 World Baseball Classic teams ::PitchersMiguel Aguilar, Diamondbacks*Andres Avila, Braves**Jorge De La RosaMarco Estrada, Blue Jays**Charles Fisher, Padres**Yovani Gallardo, MarinersGiovanny Gallegos, YankeesJaime Garcia, BravesMiguel Gonzalez, White SoxRafael Martin, Nationals**Luis MendozaMario Meza, Cubs*Vidal Nuno, DodgersRoberto Osuna, Blue JaysOliver Perez, NationalsSergio RomoIvan Salas*Noel SalasJake Sanchez, AJoakim Soria, RoyalsCarlos Torres, BrewersJulio Urias, Dodgers** Active designated pitchers pool** Designated pitchers poolCatchersXorge Carrillo, MetsSebastian Valle, MarinersInfieldersJaphet AmadorDaniel Castro, RockiesLuis CruzAdrian Gonzalez, DodgersBrandon LairdEsteban QuirozJose Manny RodriguezOutfieldersJose AguilarKhris Davis, AEfren Navarro, TigersChristopher RobersonAlex Verdugo, Dodgers.
