From John Fay:
Edinson Volquez canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pitch in tomorrowÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s spring opener because of visa issues. In short, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not allowed to play in front of paying fans without a work visa.
Volquez came to the US on a travel visa and will have to return to the Dominican to get a work visa and the Reds don’t know when it will be resolved. His visa problems are a result of his suspension for using a banned substance.
At this point you have to wonder if this opens the door for whoever would have been the odd man out in the rotation…sounds like there are possibly three spots open now.
