Ronald Belisario working out at Dodger Stadium

July 26, 2010 |  1:25 pm

Belisario_400 Ronald Belisario started to work out at Dodger Stadium on Monday, almost three weeks after he was placed on the restricted list to reportedly undergo treatment in a substance abuse program.

The Dodgers said in a statement that Belisario was still on the restricted list and that no timetable has been set for his return.

The reliever's absence was never explained by the Dodgers or Belisaro's agent, Paul Kinzer.

The Dodgers said on Monday that they would not comment on Belisario.

Kinzer also declined to offer information about his client's whereabouts over the last few weeks.

"I'm sorry about that," Kinzer said. "This is one case where I have to respect Ronald's privacy."

When asked to confirm or deny a report in The Times that Belisario was in a substance-abuse program, Kinzer said, "I don't have any comment at all. Ronald's had some personal issues he's dealing with."
