Jansen, Gonzalez returning to Classic stage

LOS ANGELES -- Three-time participant Kenley Jansen and four-time participant Adrian Gonzalez lead 10 members of the Dodgers' organization on World Baseball Classic rosters, which were announced on Wednesday.

Jansen, a native of Curacao and the reigning National League Reliever of the Year, is part of the designated pitcher pool (DPP) for Team Netherlands. It is his second World Baseball Classic as a pitcher after one as a catcher. Gonzalez will play for Team Mexico, which is managed by his brother, former Major Leaguer Edgar Gonzalez.

In addition to Jansen and Gonzalez, 40-man roster Dodgers on World Baseball Classic rosters include utilityman Enrique Hernandez (Puerto Rico), left-handed reliever Vidal Nuno (Mexico), utilityman Rob Segedin (Italy) and left-hander Julio Urias (Mexico, DPP).

Non-roster Dodgers on Classic rosters include first baseman Ike Davis (USA), right-hander Dean Kremer (Israel), infielder Andrew Maggi (Italy) and center fielder Alex Verdugo (Mexico). Right-hander Sergio Romo, who reportedly agreed to a deal with the Dodgers this week, is on Mexico's roster.

Each team has the option of using the designated pitcher pool (DPP), which works like this: A team can use up to 10 designated pitchers but can't have more than two on its active roster at a time. Those "active" DPs can be replaced at the beginning of each of the next two rounds, but only by another DP. Once a DP has been replaced, he cannot return to the active roster for a subsequent round. Using Team USA as an example, Danny Duffy and Tanner Roark 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's other DPs. And if a DP joins for the second round, he can be replaced for the championship round, but only by another DP.

Jansen exceptional in 2016

Urias' participation is a mild surprise as Dodgers management, concerned about innings on his 20-year-old arm, are considering having him begin the season in extended spring training so he will still be fresh in September and October.
