Mid-December, 2010: Undergoes minor surgery on his left knee, the same knee he had surgery on in 2004.
Feb. 18: He isn't ready to catch when pitchers and catchers report and receives injections of Supartz, a solution that helps lubricate and create a cushion in knee joints.
March 16: Plays in his first spring game -- as designated hitter. He catches two innings in a minor league game the next day.
