Venezuela Roster for Premier 12

Venezuela may be in an economic crisis, but they are still able to send a team to Taiwan to play in the Premier 12. They will be missing their major league stars and there are no big time prospects who are participating. Two minor league outfielders are their youngest players and neither has gotten past AA in the minor leagues. Finishing in the top two to qualify for the Olympics will be a long shot. Dixon Machado is their most recent major league player, but he was released by the Miami Marlins after the 2018 season and signed to a minor league contract by the Cubs. Henderson Alvarez, Felix Doubront and Andres Blanco are additional ex-major league names who will be participating. Venezuela will be in the Taiwan pool competing against Japan, Taiwan and Puerto Rico. Below is their roster for the Premier 12
