"He just ran out of season," manager Bud Black said Tuesday. "Where he is now as far as stamina, how he feels, it doesn’t make sense to send him to instructional league or have him throw winter ball. I think, medically, everybody’s saying, 'Let’s keep him rehabbing, let’s get him as strong as possible and … get him ready for spring training.'"
