Japan has released a preliminary roster for the World Baseball Classic, and as expected, Akinori Iwamura is one of the 34 names listed.

Team Japan’s training camp is slated to begin Feb. 16, I believe, and the WBC opens in Tokyo on March 5. That could keep Iwamura away from the Rays for the bulk of spring training, but the team knew that was part of the bargain all along.
