Brett will miss the 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in mid-May, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Although the team didn't announce it initially, Brett will indeed be out for the year after beginning it on the DL with a wrist strain. The 24-year-old was assigned to Triple-A Durham following a tough spring in which he went 0-for-11 but didn't have a chance to play before he was once again hampered by injury. Brett's immediate timetable for return will be spring training, but given the severity of this injury, there's no guarantee he will be ready.
Brett is on the minor league DL with a right wrist flexor strain, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Brett had an outside chance to crack the major league roster, but he struggled in the spring, going 0-for-11 with four strikeouts. He'll now be sidelined to start the season but could still find his way up to the parent club at some point as middle infield depth.
Brett was optioned to minor league camp on Tuesday. Brett worked his way up to the big leagues last season, appearing in three games, but it was unlikely that he'd crack the Opening Day roster. He'll likely begin the season in Triple-A and will serve as organizational depth up the middle of the infield.
Rays infielder Ryan Brett was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday and optioned to Triple-A Durham, where he was on a rehab assignment. Brett had been sidelined since late April due to a left shoulder subluxation.
