LaRoche left Saturday's game against the Roayls early due to back spasms, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is likely a short-term concern that shouldn't impact LaRoche's Opening Day availability. The veteran has been around enough that he likely doesn't need too much preparation in camp, but any lingering back issues could hurt as he tries to bounce back from an awful 2015 in which he hit .207/.293/.340 with 12 home runs.
