Jason Johnson undergoing retinal cancer treatments


Peter Abraham drops in an alarming note about Jason Johnson in his Spring Training wrap-up today: The righthander, in camp on a Minor League deal, is getting treatment for a cancerous growth in his right eye. By all accounts, this procedure has a very high success rate, but Johnson must work indoors for at least the next two weeks.

    It’s so insane doctors can go in and zap a tumor (with frickin lazer beams!) thats growing behind your eyeball.

    A reality check for everyone. Best wishes on the procedure.
