John Lott of the National Post reports that Podsednik is due to be examined by doctors when he arrives at Blue Jays camp tomorrow and there’s currently “no timetable” for his readiness for game action. According to Lott, manager John Farrell indicated that the team didn’t know about the injury when they signed Podsednik, which is surprising given that it was just last week and so much of his value stems from speed.
Podsednik is slated to compete for a bench spot in Toronto, but could also be an option as the Blue Jays’ left fielder and leadoff man depending on how the rest of the lineup shakes out. He can earn $1 million by making the team, so Podsednik’s decision to decline his half of a mutual option with the Dodgers back in November will cost him at least $1 million even if he gets healthy and wins a job. And with an injury that tends to linger, that’s far from a guarantee.
