Kansas City Royals’ speedy outfielder Jarrod Dyson went from starting right fielder candidate to the spring’s first casualty. Dyson will spend six weeks and most likely start the season on the DL after suffering a Grade 2 oblique strain during a charity game on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers.
It happened in his first at-bat, he jogged to first slowly after hitting a grounder. Dyson said he strained himself the day before.
This injury affects everything a ball player does, on and off the field and Dyson will have to be careful not to do anything to aggravate the injury until he is fully recovered.
