PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Sandy Alderson returned to camp Monday after the birth of a grandchild and is expected to officially nix later today Johan Santana's participation in the World Baseball Classic.

Santana had expressed a seemingly genuine desire to represent Venezuela in the March tournament. David Wright will be the lone representative for the Mets in the WBC.
