Orioles | Luis Ayala explains decision to skip WBC

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles RP Luis Ayala said he will not pitch for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic because he needs rest after pitching in a winter league this offseason. "Everybody wants to represent their country. It was a tough decision for me, because I played winter league but I didn't rest. So at this time in my career ... you don't want to be away, but you have to be away from that, [so] I think I need rest. I think it will make my performance [better during the season], to take care of myself at this time. I was so tired, had a lot of fatigue from the winter and Caribbean Series," Ayala said.
