47-year-old former Major Leaguer Eduardo Perez has turned down an offer to manage Spain in the World Baseball Classic Qualifier in Panama next March. He is currently managing the Tigres de Aragua in the Venezuelan Winter League and is working as bullpen coach for the Atlanta Braves during the summer. Quoted in an article with El Universal he cited the time of the WBC Qualifier in March as reason for the non-agreement. Nonetheless Perez is helping RFEBS to recruit players for the Spanish WBC squad. Perez, a former MLB catcher who won the 1995 World Series with the Braves, would like to manage Venezuela in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, but believes other candidates are ahead on the list. Fellow ex-Major Leaguer Luis Salazar also has turned down Spain.
