Bucky Jacobsen note
From today's Kitsap Sun:
It got so bad this year that he could barely push off his back leg when he swung the bat. An exam revealed the cartilage damage and he had surgery on Sept. 16.If Bucky's knee was limiting him during his callup last season, it will be interesting to see what he can do this season.
After six weeks on crutches, doctors cleared Jacobsen on Monday to put all his weight on his right leg and continue building strength in it.
"I'm not at full speed, but I'm at ahead of schedule," he said. "The best part is that it feels good."
And when Jacobsen feels good, he figures he will play good.
"If I impressed them with a bum knee," he said, "then I can't wait until next year."
