Belisario Reports, Placed on Restricted List

AWOL reliever Ronald Belisario finally resolved his visa issues and arrived at the Dodgers’ Camelback Ranch-Glendale complex Saturday from his native Venezuela.


As a preemptive move, club officials revealed that on Friday they placed Belisario on the Major League restricted list for failure to report to Spring Training, effectively buying a 30-day window for Belisario to get in shape and be activated.


Vice president Kim Ng said Belisario will not count against the Dodgers’ 40-man Major League roster for a maximum of 30 days and won’t be paid either until he’s activated. Because Belisario is out of options, he cannot be sent to the Minor Leagues without clearing waivers. — Ken Gurnick

I cannot help to think that if “Mama” Luchy Guerra was still with the Dodgers, she would have fixed Belisario’s visa problems.
