It will be negatively impacted if his oblique injury causes him to lose more than a few days. From his perspective, that sucks—it's the difference between the major-league minimum and whatever his contract calls for if he doesn't make the roster, probably a delta measured in six figures. From the team's perspective, I think it's enough to point out that they're choosing between Decker and Alejandro De Aza for a roster spot and leave it at that.
