DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) -Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Lyle Overbay expects to know soon whether his fractured right hand has fully healed.
Overbay's hand was broken last June when he was hit by a pitch from John Danks of the Chicago White Sox. Overbay was limited to 122 games last season and hit .240, a big drop from his .312 mark in 2006.
``I think these next 2-3 weeks will tell,'' Overbay said Tuesday. ``With the vibration it might flare up a bit, but that is expected. My strength is there, so it's just a matter of making sure it doesn't flare up too much.''
The 31-year-old Overbay missed the previous two days of camp because of the stomach flu. He was held out of Tuesday's intrasquad game.
``It's been frustrating, but I got caught up with it,'' he said. ``Today was kind of my first day to see how my energy levels are. I don't expect to be out more than a couple of days.''
Notes: Toronto has 59 of its 60 players in camp. INF Hector Luna is having paperwork problems arriving from the Dominican Republic.
