NEW YORK -- Former Puerto Rican Attorney General Jorge Perez-Diaz will be the interim head of Latin American oversight for Major League Baseball following the departure of Sandy Alderson to become general manager of the New York Mets.

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig made the announcement Friday. Perez-Diaz, a partner in Pietrantoni Mendez & Alvarez, will work with an oversight committee that includes Florida Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest and Minnesota Twins GM Bill Smith. Alderson will remain a committee member.

Perez-Diaz is president of the appeals commission of the Puerto Rico Anti-Doping Commission.

Baseball has been increasing efforts to prevent identify and age fraud among prospects.
