Three Colorado Rockies Prospects Invited To Pan Am Qualifying Team

Jack Etkin at reports that catcher Jordan Pacheco, reliever Bruce Billings and first baseman Brad Eldred have been selected for the USA Baseball Pan Am Qualifying team. This team will compete in a 13-team tourney, of which eight teams will qualify for next year's 2011 Pan American Games. The top six teams from those Games will move to the 2011 IBAF Baseball World Cup.


All 24 players selected have yet to be added to a major league team's 40-man roster. Brad Eldred would have been ineligible for the team earlier this season when he played for the Rockies. Jordan Pacheco played for the 2002 USA Baseball 16U National team.
