Blue Jays' Michael Saunders Steps On Sprinkler, Needs Knee Surgery

Blue Jays fans received their sucker punch early this season. Outfielder Michael Saunders stepped on a sprinkler head in spring training, and now he needs surgery. He might be out until the All-Star break.

From the Brandon Sun:

[Saunders] was shagging balls Wednesday morning at the team's training complex when he jammed his foot on a sprinkler head indentation.

Saunders said the pitch was a little wet at the time.

"It was a tiny bit slippery, I just think I stepped in the wrong spot."

And now, there are sad photos of Michael Saunders on crutches:
