Cincinnati Reds Opening Day starter Edinson Volquez believes his visa situation is resolved.
“Everything is set,” Edinson Volquez said. “They’re just waiting for me to pick it up.” Volquez has not been allowed to pitch in games at which admission is charged because he entered the country on a travel visa rather than a work visa. The work visa was held up because Volquez failed a drug test and was suspended last year. Volquez threw 50 pitches in live batting practice Wednesday. (Cincinnati.com)
