Pitcher Geno Espineli had been named to the US Olympic Baseball team to take part in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but was called up to the San Francisco Giants a few days later to replace Keiichi Yabu in the Giants' bullpen; he was thus replaced on the Team USA roster. He made his major league debut on July 20th with a scoreless inning against the Milwaukee Brewers. He then earned his first Major League win in his next outing against the Washington Nationals on July 23rd.
Espineli pitched for the Philippines in the 2013 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers. He closed a 8-2 win over Thailand, relieving Charlie Labrador and retiring Jack Daru, Mukkapol Subsulekun and Yannapat Arpornsiri in order (the latter two on strikeouts). He also worked the 9th of a 10-6 loss to New Zealand, replacing Vladimir Eguia and getting Max Brown on a grounder, Alan Schoenberger on a fly and Tim Auty on strikes.
