I like that Moncada came in with pitchers and catchers. Ready to get started. Good sign of someone willing and wanting to do the necessary work. Let's hope he keeps that attitude.

Don't know if this was posted, Tilson out at least 10 days with a "stress reaction" in his foot. Will be reevaluated at that time.

Kid not off to a good start health-wise.

Hopefully its nothing. Does anyone happen to know how his injury history was before he came here?

Yes. He lost a few teeth back when he was 12. Tripped over his bike. Also broke an arm in an odd zoo accident.

What in the world is a "stress reaction?"

Considering that it was the same foot where he had a stress fracture in 2013, I think it's just a flareup of that. Also consider that while rehabbing from his left hamstring injury, that he needed to put more weight on the right foot, making his leg strength out of whack, as it were.

These 10 days should be a blessing in disguise for him to strengthen his left leg more so he isn't using his right one so much.

Here you go:

A stress reaction is the precursor to a stress fracture. While at the stress-reaction stage, the bone structure is breaking down and becoming weaker, but does not actually contain any fracture. A stress fracture means the structure of the bone has been compromised by a crack or fracture."

Kid says it's not a big deal...we'll see. They said the same thing about Bill Walton.

Yep, you see this in athletes all the time. A first injury leads to second injury due to compensating for the first injury.

Avi is coming into camp in shape.

http://m.mlb.com/news/article/216553...-reclaim-role/

I wonder how other teams would handle a player like Avi.

I think most other teams would have cut him or traded him for a bag of balls. Considering our status in competing, I think they're giving him a lot more time praying someone wants him or he magically turns it around.

If he can turn things around, it will help with lone of our two worst positions:

Hopefully Moncada or Lowrie can help improve that glaring hole at 2B. Even playing average at each position would really help us out.

I'm struck by Avi saying he is down from 268 to 258 and that his goal is 248. What the hell is he doing weighing that much in the first place??? Yes, he is a big guy at 6' 4" but I'm 6' 3" with a big build and at 248 I am over weight. At 258 or 268 I am fat. If I want to be in playing shape then I am down to about 225... 235 if I am really hitting the weight room.

Maybe two different people have two different body types?

Yeah, I'm 5'9" (almost) and can carry 225 if I hit the weights hard.

People struggle with weight, even MLB players. Who are you to criticize?
