This year’s World Baseball Classic has been phenomenal, and now a former Arizona Wildcat will be joining the fray.
Last year, Melancon converted 47 of his 51 save opportunities with the Pirates and Nationals. Over the offseason, he signed a monster four-year, $62.5 million deal with the San Francisco Giants, bringing the star reliever back out west. The Giants now have a couple of former Wildcats after they also brought in Nick Hundley to catch.
Team USA will take on Japan Tuesday night in Dodger Stadium in the WBC semifinal. That game is scheduled to start at 6 PM PT, and will be broadcast on MLB Network.
