“This USA roster is getting loaded!”, “It’s over for other nations” – MLB fans react to pitchers Logan Webb and Ryan Pressly committing to Team USA for the World Baseball Classic 

Team USA is starting to add some arms to their roster for the World Baseball Classic. It’s been reported that both Logan Webb and Ryan Pressly are set to join the squad. They’re the latest to announce their commitment to an almost complete Team USA roster.

Ryan Pressly joins Devin Williams, David Bednar, and Dillon Tate in the bullpen. Logan Webb will join a staff that consists of Merrill Kelly, Adam Wainwright, and Nestor Cortes. The team is starting to take shape.

Baseball fans are happy to see the team starting to add some arms. They’ve gotten a ton of commitment from elite positional players, but were lacking pitching. Fans were starting to wonder who was going to throw for Team USA.

Logan Webb is coming off a great season. He had a career-best innings pitched, ERA, and strikeouts last season. He’s one of the more underrated pitchers in Major League Baseball.

“This USA roster is getting loaded!” one fan said.

“It’s over for other nations,” said another.
