Giants' Mark Melancon: Will join Team USA in WBC

Melancon will join his fellow countrymen in the World Baseball Classic, joining Team United States for its semifinal matchup against Team Japan, CSN Bay Area reports.

Melancon didn't initially join Team USA because he wanted to get familiar with his new teammates in spring training. The elite closer accomplished his goal, throwing eight shutout innings in the process. He will join a loaded USA roster as the Americans attempt to advance to the WBC finals with a win over Team Japan on Tuesday.
