LA Dodger Gibbons Finally Gets the Right CLs

The LATimes reports that "Jay Gibbons was beginning to wonder whether his eyes would ever allow him to play in the major leagues again. 'It definitely crept through my mind more than once that this was not going to get better,' Gibbons said Tuesday after being reinstated with the Dodgers. He replaced Marcus Thames, who was put on the 15-day disabled list because of a right quadriceps strain.

Starting in spring training, Gibbons struggled to find the correct contact lenses, especially in his right eye, leaving him unable to handle big league pitching and to break camp with the Dodgers. 'About five days ago, we tried yet another pair, and finally the last doctor I went to made the diagnosis that I was nearsighted and not farsighted [in the right eye], and I was being treated for farsightedness,' Gibbons said."
