[9/30/2016] Ernesto Mejia would like to participate in the 2017 WBC

Ernesto Mejia returned to Venezuela out of Narita Airport on September 29. Before leaving, he told reporters he wanted to participate in the World Baseball Classic. However, the Seibu Lions just signed him to a three-year deal worth an estimated 500 million yen a year. The issue was raised during contract negotiations and the Lions are open to letting him participate, so long as they figure out a way to deal with the risk.
