Some good news on the Brandon Lyon front, seeing as how he'll be getting $5m this year. This time it's McTaggart saying that Lyon had a small cyst in his shoulder drained today.
Footer follows up with a note:
(Doctors) believe draining cyst will alleviate weakness in shoulder. He's been throwing without discomfort since the cyst was drained 2 weeks ago.
UPDATE: Maybe I spoke too soon. The cyst was one and a half grapes. Not one grape. Not two grapes. Somewhere in between.
Hey, how much time will Lyon miss in Spring Training, Ed Wade?
"It shouldn't be an appreciable amount of time."
