Jennings to start season late

Desmond Jennings, the top prospect last year in the South Atlantic League, will start this season late because of a back injury, Rays farm director Mitch Lukevics said. There isn't a timetable on his return, Lukevics said.

Jennings hit .315 with 45 steals and 75 runs scored for Class A Columbus last year. He missed the last two weeks of the regular season and the playoffs because of a knee injury.
