On the mend
Shortstop J.P. Crawford, the club's top prospect, will begin the season on the disabled list as he recovers from a left oblique strain he suffered during Spring Training. Right-hander Victor Arano and left-hander Yoel Mecias will also have their seasons delayed as they recover from injuries.
