Dodgers: Keibert Ruiz Will Be a Late Arrival to Spring Training



Not everything goes as planned in MLB Spring Training, and that is especially true in a  global pandemic. The Dodgers will be without one of their top prospects in camp for at least the next couple of days. 

This is the second consecutive year that Ruiz will be a late arrival to a camp. Keibert was infected with COVID-19 ahead of the start of Summer Camp in July and could not be a part of the Dodgers training for a few weeks. 

This year, the issue is with Keibert’s visa. It’s not the first time that a big-league ballplayer has had an issue with their visa in getting to Spring Training, and the situation with COVID-19 cannot make that any easier. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that he does not expect further issues with the visa.
