A couple of late additions by countries seeking to fill out rosters brought the number of Rangers on World Baseball Classic first-round rosters to seven. It doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that seven Rangers will be playing.

Prospects Leury Garcia (Dominican Republic) and Jose Felix (Mexico) each received late invitations to play after others pulled out.

Garcia, an infielder who could by vying for the utility spot on the big league roster, remained uncertain Thursday if he would join the Dominican team. A day after being invited, presumably partly because of 3B Adrian Beltre’s withdrawal, he spoke with Daniels about the situation but remained undecided.

Felix, who caught for Mexico in the finals of the Caribbean Series three weeks ago, indicated that he intended to play.

“I think for Jose, the situation is a little different,” Daniels said. “It is more clear. There isn’t a position to win on the big league club, where there might be for Leury. [Felix’s] done a good job over the last year of putting himself back on the map, but I’ve encouraged him to go and play for his country. It’s an incredible honor.”

The other participants: LHP Derek Holland (U.S.), SS Elvis Andrus (Venezuela), OF Nelson Cruz (Dominican Republic), OF Engel Beltre and minor league IF Gabe Suarez (Mexico). Adrian Beltre has said he may go to later rounds with the Dominican if his sore calf is better by then.
