They said it was just kind of an unidentified viral infection of my liver. What they were thinking was–just based upon the results and the signs that I showed–that I’d probably had this sometime probably close to January. That’s what the doctors were thinking. They were thinking it was probably affecting me this whole season.
I don’t want to have that sound like an excuse or anything, but that’s just what they were thinking on it. And during Spring Training I saw the doctor a couple of times because I was just not feeling real well.
I think, now that I’m healthy, I can definitely feel a difference. My body feels strong. I feel like it just has so much more energy, just thinking back on the year. It was a dull sensation.
