By Adam Rubin
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- David Wright will not be the only member of the Mets organization to participate in the World Baseball Classic.
Minor league catcher Francisco Pena has been named to the Dominican Republic's squad. The team will be managed by his father, former All-Star catcher Tony Pena.
Pena, 23, hit a combined .228 with seven homers and 39 RBIs in 268 at-bats between Class A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton last season.
