Rays prospect out 3-to-4 weeks
OF Desmond Jennings, one of the Rays top prospects, is expected to be sidelined 3-to-4 weeks with a back injury, according to Mitch Lukevics, director of minor league operations.
Jennings, 21, the top prospect last season in the South Atlantic League, hit .315 with 75 runs and 45 steals for Single-A Columbus, but missed the final two weeks of the regular season and postseason with a knee injury.
Jennings, a former Alabama football signee, was a 10th-round selection by the Rays in 2006. He is rated the Rays sixth-best prospect by Baseball America.
