The power of the Dominican Republic is felt in Major League Baseball. Each year it consolidates its position as a foreign power in the best baseball in the world.

MLB announced that a total of 275 players from 21 different countries and territories outside of the Americas are on Major League Baseball’s active and inactive roster for Opening Day 2022. The number, which is the result of the expansion of rosters to 28 players per club, is the second highest in history, behind the 291 in 2020, when each team had an active roster of 30 players.

Venezuela is second with 67, Cuba is third with 23, and Puerto Rico is fourth with 16.

In addition, Mexico currently has 13 participants, followed by Canada (12), Colombia (10, the most), Japan (seven), Panama (six), Curacao (five), South Korea (four), Bahamas (three), Aruba (one), Australia (one), Brazil (one), Germany (one), Honduras (one), Netherlands (one), Nicaragua (one), Taiwan (one), and the U.S. Virgin Islands (one).
For the second consecutive year, the Astros are the team with the most foreign players (16), followed by the Nationals (15), Twins (13), Padres (13), Marlins (12), Braves (11), Reds (11), Tigers (11), and Blue Jays (11).
