Vernon

I guess the stretching didn't do what it was suppose to do, prevent injuries. Vernon is out for a month due to a hamstring issue. Fantasy owners who are drafting soon should take note of this and make sure you let him slide in the draft. Injuries like this usually seem to linger if not taken care of properly. Luckily this is the start of spring training and the Jays will give every opportunity possibility for him to heal and get back to 100%.

For owners who are drafting late in March make sure to keep an eye out for him. In my league I will be drafting late in March and I hope to grab him as my 3rd OF'er. Most likely won't happen but we'll see. Maybe the injury report will scare off a few people.

His ability to hit 30HRs and drive in 100RBIs while giving owners a .300AVG is something you can't help but giddy over. Also, if his legs are healthy he can throw in 5-10 steals...bonus!

Vernon injured already. This is not good. Not good at all. Seriously, do the Jays EVER get a break?

Not too worried about this injury because the Jays will most likely not be playoff contenders. But I would still like to watch the Jays with a healthy lineup.
