Carlos Gomez has decided not to play for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic.
Gomez wants to focus all of his attention on preparing for the 2013 season, which is his walk year. "You know, he's got a lot of energy and he wants to help us play," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "It's a big year for him, what he does this year. That was part of the reason."
