Belisario back in LA after travel issues at break
LOS ANGELES -- Reliever Ronald Belisario was back in Los Angeles on Friday after missing Thursday night's Dodger Stadium workout because he was stuck at the immigration office in the Miami airport on his way home from his native Venezuela.

He said he wasn't given a reason for why he was detained, but said he was forced to wait about an hour before being released. He was on the next flight about 4 1/2 hours later, and he said arrived in L.A. at approximately 9:45 p.m. PT.

Belisario said he was mad at the time while connecting in Miami, but he had calmed down by Friday afternoon when he was back in the Dodgers clubhouse.

After talking to his reliever, manager Don Mattingly said he wasn't upset and that it wasn't Belisario's fault.

Belisario, who sports a 1.48 ERA after pitching a scoreless eighth in the Dodgers' 2-1 win over the Padres, missed all of 2011 when he couldn't obtain a visa after testing positive for cocaine. He missed the first 25 games of this season serving an ensuing suspension.
