I seem to recall that a large part of Dan Johnson's struggles last year were blamed on an eye condition, something about his contacts alternately drying out his eyes then tearing up. A) Am I remembering this correctly and B) Anyone know if the issue has been resolved?

And how about his AL Central doppelganger, Shelton? Will he get another chance? I still like him better than Casey.

You are right. He was having trouble with his eys not making enough tears. He saw an ophthalmologist in like June but I don't recal hearing anthing after that. Stewart is going to cut into his playing time more then his eye problems now though.

Here's a tidbit of Dan Johnson

Rotoworld wrote:Dan Johnson developed double vision last year, possibly part of the root of his struggles for the A's.
One of the prescriptions Johnson was given during the season apparently caused the double vision. Johnson just thought his vision was blurry, and that complicated the diagnosis, because "my perception of what was wrong was wrong." Johnson has been undergoing intensive eye therapy and, he said, "There were dramatic results right away. It's night and day." Johnson will have to battle the newly acquired Shannon Stewart for playing time this spring.
