Manager Brandon Hyde said the 25-year-old is disappointed he will not be able to start the season with the team.
“My heart goes out to him,” Hyde said. “He worked so hard, he had a great offseason from a work standpoint, he’s making huge strides. We were just talking about how much he’s improved defensively yesterday morning and I like the swing adjustments he’s been making.”
