Ruben Tejada has not yet secured a visa, but Sandy Alderson said there still is time for Jose Reyes' successor at shortstop to report to camp on time Saturday.

Tejada, 22, has a meeting at the U.S. embassy in his native Panama on Wednesday, according to Alderson. The GM joked that there were no questions about the youthful-looking Tejada's age.
