PORT CHARLOTTE Rays reliever Joel Peralta, who is on the Dominican roster for the World Baseball Classic, may not pitch. Peralta did pitch in the Dominican winter league and the Rays are concerned about the innings he will pitch this spring.

“I got to do what’s ever best for the team and me,” he said.

Peralta also noted that this would be his last chance to pitch for his native county in the WBC, so he’s weighing that option. He and Rays executive vice president of baseball Andrew Friedman will discuss the subject before Peralta makes his decision.
