by Bob Timmermann just printed a summary in English and didn't have all the names, but the Miami Herald has all of them.

Pitchers: Johan Santana, Freddy García, Francisco Rodríguez, Víctor Zambrano, Jorge Julio, Kelvin Escobar, Giovanny Carrara, Ricardo Palma, Carlos Hernández, Gustavo Chacín, Rafael Betancourt, Carlos Silva, Francisco Butto, Víctor Moreno, Carlos Zambrano and Tony Armas Jr.

Catchers: Ramón Hernández, Henry Blanco, Víctor Martínez y Alex Delgado

Infielders: Omar Vizquel, Miguel Cabrera, Edgardo Alfonzo, Carlos Guillén, Alex González, Tomás Pérez, Marco Scutaro and Luis Rodríguez

Outfielders: Bobby Abreu, Endy Chávez, Magglio Ordoñez, Melvin Mora, Juan Rivera, Antonio Alvarez y Robert Pérez

Felix Hernandez will not be pitching as Seattle wanted strict limitations on his pitching.

The roster will be cut to 30 before the tournament starts.

Luis Sojo says Venezuela should be considered the favorite to win because of the pitching.
If it was a full season, and not a Spring Training tournament (subject to pitch count limits), I'd agree with him.
Odds-makers favor the US and DR mashers.

I've been down on this tournament from the start, but now that it's almost here, I have to admit, it's going to be fun to watch these teams mix it up (as long as nobody gets hurt.)
