Reed Johnson ops for surgery

Postby BUCCOFAN » Mon Apr 16, 2007 3:10 pm


Reed Johnson will undergo surgery for a herniated disc in his back and isn't expected to return before July.
Back surgery can be tricky, so Johnson can't be counted on to show up at full strength after the All-Star break. Fortunately, the Jays have Adam Lind to cover for him in left field and should be fine there. However, now the only backup they have for the outfield, first base and DH is Matt Stairs. They'll want to add some depth, even if it's just a quad-A player. Alex Rios is likely to remain in the leadoff spot until Johnson returns, giving him some additional value.

Does this make Lind anymore valuable, (I just got him in a 12 team auction, keeper league, for $3) what should we expect for him stat wise the rest of the season?

Thanks again
