PHILS RANGER SUAREZ: STUCK IN VENEZUELA FOR OPENING DAY?

By Sam Bush

Matt Gelb of The Athletic is reporting that Phillies left-hander Ranger Suarez doesn’t have his visa and is unlikely to be ready by opening day.

Communication between players and their team’s front office was prohibited during the lockout, delaying certain processes like acquiring visas, so how long it may be before Suarez can travel to spring training is hard to say.

But this is one of those unfortunate side effects of the work stoppage.

Visa issues are likely to impact several other players.
