That means the earliest he’d be able to resume baseball activities is March 25, which would leave Podsednik less than a week to get ready for the Blue Jays’ season opener against the Twins. In other words, he’s all but certain to begin the season on the disabled list or, because he signed a non-guaranteed minor-league contract, at Triple-A.
All of which makes Podsednik’s misguided decision to turn down a one-year, $2 million deal from the Dodgers back in November look like an even bigger mistake. At best he’ll make just half that money with the Blue Jays and at worst–which is what we’re seeing so far given the foot injury–he’ll end up spending much of the year earning significantly less than that while rehabbing or riding buses in the minors.
