According to Barry M. Bloom of MLB.com, Team USA has announced its roster for the 2013 World Baseball Classic. There are five players returning from the 2009 squad that lost in the semifinals.
The question is: Which players have the most to prove?
From stars who had lackluster 2012 campaigns to young players with contracts to earn, there are players in need of a major statement. By making an impact on the world stage, they could go a long way toward repairing their reputations or creating better future situations for themselves.
So, who needs to step up big at the WBC?
