During the 2006 World Baseball Classic, Elario was 0-1 with a 10.12 ERA. He relieved Tyrone Lamont with a 6-4 deficit against Team Canada in the 7th inning. He allowed a Pete LaForest double then drew two wild pitches to make it 7-4. Aaron Guiel walked and Adam Stern singled but Pete Orr hit into a double play to end further damage. In the 8th, Jared retired Stubby Clapp and fanned Jason Bay on a full count. He walked Justin Morneau, Matt Stairs and Corey Koskie to load the bases before Max St. Pierre grounded out. In the 9th, he gave up a triple to Ryan Radmanovich and a RBI double to Stern. Orr grounded back to Elario, who made a run-scoring error and was removed from the contest. He also pitched the final inning of the 17-0 loss to Team USA. He retired Derrek Lee. Chase Utley singled but Elario then got Michael Barrett on a fly and Randy Winn to ground into a force to end it.
Elario played in the 2006 World Junior Championship.
Jared had a 0-1, 8.10 record in the 2007 Baseball World Cup, allowing 11 hits and 5 walks in 6 2/3 innings. He gave up 6 runs in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mexican national team and 3 unearned runs in two innings of relief versus Panama.
Back with South Africa for the 2008 Final Olympic Qualification Tournament, he surrendered three runs on 6 hits and 4 walks in 5 innings in a no-decision against Germany. He got his second start against Australia but was roughed up. Paul Weichard doubled, Daniel Berg walked, Ben Risinger flew out, Glenn Williams singled in a run and Tom Brice singled in a run. Brice's hit was up the middle and injured Elario, knocking him from the game. Both runners later scored and he finished with a 11.81 ERA.
