Jason Johnson diagnosed with cancer of the retina

George King is reporting that pitcher Jason Johnson has been diagnosed with cancer of the retina.

"I went to the eye doctor to get a new pair of contacts and they found it,'' said Johnson, who is in camp on a minor league deal. "They sent me to the Wills Eye Institute in Philly. It's supposed to be the best in the world. Only 2,000 people a year get it. They put a radiation plaque on my eye for four days. They told me it has a 98 percent success rate. I can't pitch outside for two weeks. I can see but not real well.''
Scary stuff. My thoughts are with him and his family.
