Shortstop Freddy Galvis from the Philadelphia Phillies was removed from the Venezuelan World Baseball Classic roster after suffering a groin injury. Even though he is listed only as day to day, the 27-year-old has to pass on the tournament. Together with Alcides Escobar he was only one of two shortstops on the team. Second baseman Rougned Odor of the Texas Rangers was added to give some infield depth.
