Ronald Belisario RP TB 5 Days

Belisario suffered a fractured shoulder in a pre-camp accident and will be out for two weeks, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The injury came in one of those random offseason accidents, this time with Belisario getting out of a pool. This further hurts the 32-year-old's chances to make the Rays' big league squad out of spring training, as he'll only have a couple weeks to show he can improve on his 5.56 ERA 2014 season while also dealing with a recovering shoulder. He'll likely start the season in Triple-A and could make the majors thanks to standard bullpen volatility, but he's not touching real fantasy stats anytime soon.

Belisario signed a minor league contract with the Rays on Saturday that includes an invite to spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Reports earlier in the week suggested Belisario was on the verge of signing with Toronto, but that deal fell through and the right-hander will now join Tampa in hopes of earning a bullpen role in spring training. After being clobbered to the tune of a 5.56 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 62 appearances with the White Sox last season, Belisario will need to show significant improvement to break camp with the big club.

Belisario is unlikely to sign with the Blue Jays, contrary to previous reports, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

You can't really blame for the Jays deciding to not sign a guy who hasn't registered a WHIP below 4 since 2012, so Belisario will move on and look for a spring training invite somewhere else.

Belisario agreed to a minor league deal with the Blue Jays on Thursday, Jim Bowden of ESPN reports.

Belisario spent part of last season as the closer for the White Sox but struggled down the stretch and was eventually outrighted. The 31-year-old, who posted a 5.56 ERA last season, will look to make the team out of camp but could end up at Triple-A.

Belisario has elected to become a free agent rather than accept an assignment to the minors.

Belisario went from a closer role with the White Sox to being outrighted after a poor finish to the season. The 21-year-old finished with a 5.56 ERA and 1.45 WHIP while striking out fust 47 in 66.1 innings. He will try his hand in free agency, and could easily latch on to a bullpen elsewhere based on his past track record.

The White Sox designated Belisario for assignment Thursday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Belisario appeared in 62 games for the White Sox last season, but he posted a 5.56 ERA and 1.45 WHIP, so the club decided to remove him from the 40-man roster. It remains to be seen what his next step will be.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura announced Friday that Ronald Belisario has been removed from his role as the team's closer.

It's not incredibly shocking news, as Belisario hasn't pitched well this season. The last straw apparently came in Friday's game where he surrendered two runs (one earned) on three hits while recording only one out against the Blue Jays. Jake Petricka came on and converted the save on Friday, and could be the man to own in the interim basis. Javy Guerra and Zach Putnam are also expected to be in the mix.

Ronald Belisario's struggles continued, but he escaped with his eighth save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Manager Robin Ventura gave Belisario a vote of confidence prior to the game, but allowed an inherited run to score on two hits before inducing a game-ending double-play for his eighth save in 12 chances. Belisario carries an ugly 5.35 ERA but it appears the ninth inning is still his for the time being.

White Sox manager Robin Ventrua said Tuesday that Ronald Belisario will remain the team's closer.

Belisario blew another save Monday in Baltimore when he allowed a three-run walkoff homer to Orioles slugger Chris Davis, but the White Sox don't exactly have a better option at the moment. Zach Putnam and Javy Guerra may be worthwhile speculative fantasy stashes in case Belisario, who has a 5.50 ERA in 36 total innings this season, can't suddenly right the ship.

Ronald Belisario took his fourth blown save and fourth loss after giving up a three-run homer to the Orioles' Chris Davis in the ninth inning Monday.

Matt Lindstrom made his last appearance on May 19, making Belisario the White Sox's closer. Since he took over the role the following day, he's given up 11 earned runs and 18 hits in 11 2/3 innings, taking his overall ERA up to 5.20. Manager Robin Ventura has been steadfast in his corner -- mostly because Ventura made that choice in the first place -- but after this one, it's going to be hard for Belisario to keep his job. Even when he's converted his chances, he's been shaky; he's allowed runs in four of his seven saves. Zach Putnam is probably next in line for the White Sox, though he's not a very good bet either. Javy Guerra has the most closing experience of the righties in the pen and could be a sleeper.
