Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia is going to be suiting up for another team this spring -- Team U.S.A.

The 27-year-old Miami native announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he had been selected to play for the United States at the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

"Talking to a legend Joe Torre is a good way to start a week!! Honored to put on that USA jersey again!!" tweeted Arencibia from his verified account, adding the hashtag ".LetsGetIt."

Torre, who managed the New York Yankees to four World Series titles, is Major League Baseball's executive vice-president for baseball operations. He will be Team U.S.A.'s manager for the WBC.

The official lineups for the WBC -- a tournament featuring 16 national teams and held every four years -- won't be announced until Thursday.
