Two weeks ago Dodgers reliever Ronald Belisario and his agent had an odd back-and-forth in the media, with Paul Kinzer saying that he didn’t expect Belisario to pitch at all this season due to visa problems in Venezuela and Belisario responding that he simply lost his passport and would soon be reporting to spring training.
Well, he’s still a no-show and it certainly doesn’t sound like the Dodgers are expecting him in camp any time soon.
This morning Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times asked Don Mattingly if there was anything new regarding Belisario’s situation and the first-year manager sarcastically replied: “I didn’t see him in the meeting.”
Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean that Kinzer was right about Belisario likely missing the entire season, but clearly the notion that he was being delayed by nothing more than a lost passport is off base.
