Pitcher Alfredo Aceves has decided to skip the World Baseball Classic, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "This is my job," Aceves told Hoch. "I cannot leave my job. I have to have a job first. I want to make my team and help the team."

While he had a desire to the Mexican team, Aceves is also fighting for a Major League spot and has decided to make that his focus.
