Team Korea hits reset button with '17 roster

Oh lone Major Leaguer in the mix as country aims to shake off '13 finish

Team Korea hits reset button with '17 roster

Team Korea will look to rebound from a disappointing finish in the World Baseball Classic four years ago with a roster full of fresh new faces. Seung Hwan Oh, a right-handed reliever for the Cardinals, is the only Major Leaguer on the team's roster. Pool play begins March 6, in Seoul's Gocheok Sky Dome -- an 18,000-seat stadium that is the home of the KBO's Nexen Heroes.

While the team usually has the likes of Major Leaguers Shin-Soo Choo, Hyun Soo Kim and Jung Ho Kang on the roster, Korea will be led this time around by Oh, first baseman Dae-Ho Lee and outfielder Ah-seop Son. Lee currently plays for the Lotte Giants, but he spent the 2016 season in the Mariners' organization. Son garnered some interest from MLB clubs in 2015, but he didn't sign with a team.
