CARY, N.C. -- With trips to Cuba and the Netherlands on the horizon, the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team finalized its 22-man roster on Monday, adding University of Oregon right-hander Jake Reed.

A freshman from La Mesa, Calif., who had been an alternate during the team's current tour, Reed joins University of Oregon outgoing senior catcher Brett Hambright as full-fledged members of Team USA.

As a true freshman, Reed was Oregon’s Saturday starter, helping the Ducks to a 46-19 record and Super Regional appearance. He finished the season with a record of 8-4, 2.92 ERA and a staff leading 15 quality starts. He was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American and received Pac-12 honorable mention accolades.

The 2012 version of Team USA is currently 4-0 with wins over the Fayetteville Swampdogs, Wilmington Sharks and Morehead City Marlins of the Coastal Plain League and Catawba Stars of the Virginia Collegiate League. 

The Red, White and Blue will participate in the final two games of the Prospect Classic on Monday and Tuesday before beginning the international portion of its schedule. 

Guided by Tennessee head coach Dave Serrano, who is assisted by Ducks' head coach George Horton, the Collegiate National Team will travel to Havana where it will play five games against Cuba at Latin American Stadium, July 5-9. 

The first four games against Cuba are tentatively scheduled to start at 8 p.m. before a 5 p.m. first pitch for the final game. The international friendship series will mark the first between the two baseball powers since 1996. 

From there, the U.S. will conclude its summer tour by traveling to the Netherlands for Honkbal Week in Haarlem, July 13-22. In addition to Team USA, Cuba, Japan, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico and Chinese Taipei will also participate in the tournament.
