Fred Lewis will miss the final two weeks of the season following surgery to remove bunions from his left foot. He’s traveling to Alabama to have the operation, although Birmingham’s most famous doctor, James Andrews, won’t be doing the honors. Instead it will be the awesomely named Dr. Angus McBryde.
Lewis had a solid season for the Blue Jays after being acquired from the Giants for cash in mid-April, hitting .262/.332/.414 with 44 extra-base hits and 17 steals in 480 plate appearances while starting 94 games as primarily a left fielder.
He’ll be arbitration eligible for the first time this offseason and figures to get a raise to around $1 million, but as a 29-year-old career .272/.348/.418 hitter who can play all three outfield spots he’s certainly worth that money.
