Casilla getting work in Dominican Republic

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Though Santiago Casilla remains stuck in the Dominican Republic while he untangles his visa issues, the right-hander sent manager Bruce Bochy a video of a bullpen session he threw Monday.

"He looked good," Bochy said.

Bochy said the images were as amusing as they were informative, since a couple of Casilla's buddies could be seen begging to serve as his catcher.

"He had an entourage," Bochy said.
