Halladay's Outlook Strong

Toronto ace SP Roy Halladay's broken leg, sustained when a screaming liner was hit back to the box, is a "shaft fracture" rather than an "articulate fracture" and thus offers better chances for an easy, full recovery without great risk of lingering complications or prolonged disability. Expect him to quickly return to form once he chips off the rust during spring training. Though he is throwing and excercising now, he hasn't appeared in a game situation since he was hurt in August. Recommendation: Buy!
