Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie will start the regular season on the disabled list because of a strained rib.
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced the news on Monday.
Lawrie felt discomfort in his left side during an exhibition game with Canada's World Baseball Classic team against the Cincinnati Reds on March 6.
