Jeff Johnson talked to Royce Lewis this morning about his knee issue. Lewis noted that he was diagnosed with patellar tendinitis awhile ago, but it's something that he can play through. There will be days when it flares up as it has this week. Twice this week he has left a game.
Rest is what is needed. He didn't play today (Sunday). Monday is an off day. Tuesday is the All Star game, and he may play a couple of innings. He's got Wednesday off. Thursday the second half starts.
