Ronald Belisario Update

+

Crazy story here. Belisario has been one of the strangest ex-Pirates to follow. Here's the basic rundown: 2009: Belisario shows up two weeks late to Dodgers spring training and is sent to minor league camp. He turns so many heads that they send him back to major league camp and he makes the 25 man out of spring. He goes on to put up a 2.04 ERA in 70 2/3 innings. He has a mid-season arrest for DUI, but pleads down to a lesser charge. 2010: Belisario shows up about 6 weeks late to Dodgers spring training and spends time on the restricted list. He doesn't come off until about 3 weeks into the regular season. He struggles that last week of April and through May before a strong June. He then spends over a month back on the restricted list with substance abuse issues that the team was very reluctant to talk about. He eventually returned and finished the season with a 5.04 ERA in 55 1/3 innings. 2011: Belisario again doesn't show up on time for camp. A reporter asked him what the situation was and he said he lost his passport and was working to get a new one. Word got back to Belisario's agent who correct him by saying that Belisario's passport was revoked and he's unlikely to be allowed into the US and will likely miss the entire season.
