31 men travelling to Australia announced

A few surprises in terms of the names present, with some late changes also obviously necessary as the result of the injury to Patrick Corbin.

Most of these are much as expected, though again, remember that these are the traveling players, and there will still need to be some trimming as far as the roster goes. Six of these will not be on the actual 25-man roster for the two games - mostly pitchers, I suspect, though an outfielder less is probable. That would leave us with 14 position players and an 11-man pitching staff, which would seem about right. More details will emerge when the team arrives in Sydney, I imagine. Charles Brewer and Zeke Spruill are the two names that are something of a surprise, though both did have major-league experience with the team last season.
