As was expected, outfielder Shane Victorino is the only Red Sox player on the provisional World Baseball Classic roster for Team USA.

Victorino projects as a backup to Ryan Braun, Adam Jones and Giancarlo Stanton. Victorino played in the 2009 WBC.

The tournament starts March 2.

Dustin Pedroia is not on the roster due to concerns about the injuries he had at the end of last season. Pedroia has been fully cleared for spring training, but the Red Sox had reservations about his playing.

Here is the full Team USA roster.
