Nick Senzel admits he wasn't going to be ready for Opening Day but says he's 100 percent now

Nick Senzel wasn’t ready to admit it when the pandemic interrupted spring training, but he admitted it Friday.

“If I’m being honest, there was probably no chance I was going to be ready for Opening Day,” he said. “I was probably weeks away from that. It so happened that I got a couple of extra months. I was able to go back to the University of Tennessee and rehab multiple times a week. It was personally good for me and my shoulder. I was able to be home and spend time with friends and family.”

He entered Spring Training 2.
