Relievers John Axford and Jim Henderson and infielder Taylor Green were selected to play for team Canada.

That makes five now, the number of Brewers set to play in the spring classic.  Outfielder Ryan Braun and catcher Jonathan Lucroy were selected to play for Team USA.

More Brewers could be added in the following days to other squads.  Pitchers Yovani Gallardo and Marco Estrada could join team Mexico.

Rules stipulate that teams can only lose 8 players from the 40-man roster for the World Baseball Classic.
