That's how you build a bench for an event like this. Imo one of the problems with previous WBC teams was that they tried to take more stars and they were using constantly rotating lineups. Set a lineup and mostly stick with it. Behind them take guys that profile as good utility players. They had a bench of Zobrist (everywhere), Vicotorino (7 AB's in 5 games), Bloomquist (3 AB's) and Lucroy/Arencibia. It's too bad they couldn't get Zobrist in at 3B but he has barely played there in his career. Imo they were missing 1-2 more big bats on offense. The bigger issue is the two starting pitchers that they are missing. Gio and Dickey are pretty good but Holland and Vogelsong shouldn't be starting for the national team.

I honestly don't know why we can't get more pitching over there. It's spring training anyway, the guys are going to be throwing every 5 days. It also gives MLB teams a longer look at rookies in the spring when their stars are gone. I see it as a win-win and low risk.
