I had no idea he might qualify. According to Gerry Fraley of the Dallas News, new Phillies third baseman Michael Young may play for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.
Mexico lists Young among the candidates for its team. Young qualifies because his mother is of Mexican descent. Young has not indicated if he intends to play for Mexico.
Young played for the United States in 2006, when he played with Chase Utley and former Phillies Brad Lidge and Brian Schneider. The same year Young played for the United States the Mexican team had to use some non-major league talent, drawing from the Mexican League and even plucked former Phillies Spring Training invitee Karim Garcia from Japan to play.
