Miguel Borroto will manage the 28 players roster, that includes veteran outfielders Alfredo Despaigne and Frederich Cepeda.

The Cubans named 13 pitchers for the Opening Round at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, as part of Group C that also includes Canada, Australia and the host nation, South Korea

The roster, a mix of veterans and young players, also includes three catchers, seven infielders, and five outfielders. 

Cuba will open the Premier12 Group C facing Canada on November 6.  On November 7, the team will play against Australia, before finishing the Opening Round on November 8 against South Korea.
