The majority of those called up also participated in the Centrocaribes in San Salvador, where the Cuban team came out silver, and in the recently concluded Caribbean Cup, they won undefeated in Puerto Rico.
In the final squad, 18 baseball players were repeated, and five were added who attended the promotional edition of the Champions League with Granma, in addition to the talented pitcher Frank Abel Álvarez, who works in professional baseball in Japan.
Mentor Armando Johnson and his technical team called up pitchers Erly Casanova, Renner Rivero, and Raymond Figueredo, as well as infielder Raúl González and outfielder Yoelquis Guibert, to strengthen the squad, whose base was tested in the Caribbean tournament.
The selection will depend on the continental event of the catchers Andrys Pérez and Andy Cosme, joined in the infield by Yasniel González, Yadil Mujica, Erisbel Arruebarrena, Luis Vicente Mateo, Dayán García, Roberto Baldoquín, and Raúl González.
Yurisbel Gracial, Roel Santos, Yoelkis Guibert, and Luis González were chosen to protect the gardens.
The pitching corps includes Geonel Gutierrez, Carlos Juan Viera, Yoennis Yera, Jose Ramon Rodriguez, Yankiel Mauris, Renner Rivero, Jonathan Carbo, Naykel Cruz, Raymond Figueredo, Erly Casanova, and Frank Abel Alvarez.
Cuba will be looking for the title it won last time in the 2007 Rio de Janeiro edition.
