A-Rod to Play in WBC; Proctor to Pitch for AAA
No link available yet (maybe this is the scoop right here) but Alex Rodriguez will definitely be playing in the World Baseball Classic this year. Apparently he has resolved his USA/Dominican Republic dilemma and agreed to play for the US. Details will be announced today. It's good to see another Yankee agreeing to play in a meaningless, contrived, useless tournament.
On the other hand, Scott Proctor will be playing in slightly more meaningful games than those exhibition tournaments this spring, but it won't be for the Yankees - it will be for the Clippers. According to the NY Post:
The Yankees are going to move Scott Proctor into the Columbus rotation, hoping he will refine his stuff and build value as insurance or as trade bait.
I'll file this under "Duh" since the Yankees already have 78 pitchers on the ML roster.
