Ramirez's arrival remains delayed by visa issue


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Manager Bruce Bochy expects all 70 players invited to camp to be present for Saturday's initial full-squad workout with one exception: right-hander Ramon Ramirez, whose arrival remained delayed by visa problems.

Bochy wasn't overly concerned about Ramirez, who he expected will report to camp in another couple of days.

Position players will ease into full activity by taking batting practice against coaches, not pitchers. A week remains before San Francisco's Feb. 23 Cactus League opener against the Los Angeles Angels.
