The Tampa Bay Rays got one of their two players dealing with visa issues in to camp Thursday, as infielder Wilson Betemit, who signed a minor-league contract with the team this offseason, arrived at the team's Spring Training complex.

The infielder said he finally got his visa approval Tuesday, flew into Miami Wednesday, and drove from Miami to Port Charlotte, arriving in town late in the evening.

Listen to Wilson talk about his plight to get a work visa as well as his injury issues and how close he feels he is to playing in a Grapefruit League game.
