Update: Lions GM Martin Mayhew said Calvin Johnson had surgery on his knee, a scope, and his finger last week.
The knee surgery was expected, but the finger surgery was a bit of a surprise for many. Not that it will be an issue at all as he is expected to be back to 100-percent by the time camp rolls around. Megatron missed two games in 2013 thanks to the knee problem and the finger issue has been lingering since 2012, so to have them both taken care of right now is a benefit for his future owners.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
