Acevedo Missing

From the Enquirer:

Thirty-two of the 33 pitchers and catchers reported for their physicals today.

The only one missing: right-hander Jose Acevedo.
[...]
With Jose, we're a little perplexed. He talked to (scout) Johnny (Almaraz), (Acevedo) said he was getting on the plane. We don't know what happened."

Acevedo had his home phone disconnected and doesn't have a cell phone, so the Reds haven't been able to contact him.

Probably not the best way to start the Spring for Acevedo, since he's not assured of a job come Opening Day.  Hopefully everything's alright with him and he shows up today.
