Martis will not play in World Baseball Classic

Nationals right-hander Shairon Martis has decided not to play in the World Baseball Classic, which starts on March 3. The news comes a day after teammate Roger Bernadina announced that he, too, would skip the Classic.

Martis is currently on the provisional roster and was expected to be a major player for the Netherlands.

Martis, 21, decided to stay in Nationals camp because he was told he has a good chance of making the 25-man roster.

“When I came to camp, they team told me I had a great chance to make the team, so that’s why I decided to stay with the team and see what happens,” Martis said.”Right now, [the Netherlands] don’t know that I’ve made this decision. When they find out, it’s going to be hard for them because they were counting on me. I want to play with them. I want to play in the Classic, but I better stay in Nationals camp.”
