Rays OF Dayron Varona's return to Cuba still awaiting final approval



Rays OF Dayron Varona's return to Cuba could be in question.

Varona's unexpected opportunity to play again in his home country has been one of the more touching storylines for next week's trip to Havana, but the Rays were still waiting Friday for final approval from the Cuban government that Varona, who defected in 2013, will be allowed into and - more importantly - out of the country.

Of note, a planned media availability with Varona has been dropped from the revised schedule of events.
