Dodgers' Belisario Stuck In Venezuela As DUI Delays His Visa
Ronald Belisario is still stuck in Venezuela with visa issues stemming from his drunk-driving arrest last summer; apparently, he knew the visa process would take longer with this on his record, but he waited until the last minute to apply.
There also is a provision, known as Regulation 6, in the current Basic Agreement between owners and the players' union that would allow the Dodgers to suspend Belisario without pay and require him to stay behind in extended spring training when the team breaks camp if he doesn't report at least 33 days before the start of the season.More on this from Jon, who is concerned that the Dodgers are more worried about his tardiness than they were about the DUI that caused the delay.
