MILWAUKEE - Two Milwaukee Brewers will represent the United States in the World Baseball Classic. Brewers writer Adam McCalvy reports that left fielder Ryan Braun and catcher Jonathan Lucroy will join the U.S. squad which will compete in the international tournament later this winter.

Former Milwaukee Braves player Joe Torre, a former manager for the Braves and Yankees, will skipper the USA squad.

Other rosters were to be announced later on Thursday.  It is believed that starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo will pitch for Mexico, while reliever John Axford and pitcher Jim Henderson would join the Canadian roster.

More could join, according to McCalvy.
