"Because we don't have a history with him, we're trying to be cautious instead of letting it turn into something major," Ash said. "Everybody else has their usual wear-and-tear, but no restrictions."
• Right-handers Jairo Asencio and Alfredo Figaro and left-hander Miguel De Los Santos were being delayed in the Dominican Republic while awaiting visas. Ash said Dominican players from other teams were similarly delayed after the U.S. consulate there had requested reviews of some previously completed background checks. Asencio and Figaro are non-roster invitees to Brewers camp, and De Los Santos is on the 40-man roster, but will be sidelined until July while recovering from shoulder surgery.
Two other members of the 40-man roster -- pitcher Ariel Pena and shortstop Jean Segura -- faced similar visa delays, but were cleared on Tuesday. Pena was expected to arrive in Phoenix on Wednesday night and Segura by the weekend.
