Ronny Paulino has yet to arrive in camp, and GM Sandy Alderson said the visa delay is directly tied to the MLB suspension for a performance-enhancing substance. Alderson said he might have a better estimate for Paulino's arrival at camp later in the day. He said MLB does not try to intervene with the government to expedite such matters. Paulino has eight games remaining on his 50-game suspension.

UPDATE: Mets officials now expect Paulino Tuesday or Wednesday.
