    That's great.

    Hopefully he's ready to go come February, but I wouldn't bet on it as close as we are.

    He has about 9 weeks until he is due to report to ST, so he should be recovered by then.

    If anything, maybe the front office can use this as an excuse to move him to RF or 1B.

    Broken bones heal pretty easily.

    True enough but there needs to be therapy as well since the muscles have atrophied in the cast. It's not like he is going to pick up a bat the day after he gets out of the cast and start taking BP. There could be residual pain as well all throughout the season. It could be that after a month or so, Jr.'s hand will be 100% but it could also be likely that he will be suffering after effects all season long.

    Maybe he punched the wall when he found out Jeff Conine was replacing him as the everyday centerfielder!!!

    I'm hoping the injury was at least something worthwhile of an injury, like getting his hand smashed with a sledgehammer.

    More than likely he was trying to open a jar of pickles and it snapped.
