SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Relief pitcher Jose Mijares was still absent on Saturday, as the infielders and outfielders joined the batterymen for the Royals' first full-squad workout.

Manager Ned Yost said that Mijares had obtained his passport in Venezuela, and was expected to arrive during the weekend.

Also missing the workout were catcher Manny Pina and outfielder Paulo Orlando. Orlando, who underwent successful surgery for a sports hernia in Philadelphia, was returning to the Arizona camp. Pina was scheduled to leave for Kansas City on Sunday for surgery on his right knee.
