A hat tip to Jeff Blair of the Globe today for unearthing a newsy bit of information at the Mattick. Blue Jays first baseman Lyle Overbay is expected to miss the first week of Grapefruit League games due to a pair of hernia surgeries he had over the winter.
Overbay has been in camp all week taking part in fielding drills and batting practice, so he’s not completely hindered here. Sounds like holding him out is more precautionary than anything, especially since Spring Training is longer than usual this year. Might as well be careful.
Anyways, that’s it for now. Later.
