Tough times for Krazy Kyle

Kyle Farnsworth told a harrowing story of having to check into the hospital on Jan. 8 when a small cut on his left leg became infected. It proved to be a MRSA infection, the dreaded “superbug.”

Had he not been treated in time, Farnsworth could have lost his leg. He spent two days in the hospital and is fine now but he missed several weeks of working out. He is a little behind the other pitchers as a result. I’ve known a few players who had staph infections and it’s serious stuff.

Farnsworth is entering the final year of his contract and is playing for a manager he was once teammates with in Joe Girardi. Maybe those two factors will lead to a big season for him.
