Red Sox | Bobby Jenks has lost weight

Boston Red Sox RP Bobby Jenks (back) has lost plenty of weight after a second emergency surgery was performed to stop spinal-fluid leakage in his back in December. "The worst part about it was having the two surgeries so close together," Jenks said. "Everything was barely healing and we had to slice through it all over again. The second one was very, very painful. After the first one, at the two-and-a-half-week mark, I was feeling great. Everything was on track to where it was supposed to be and then that happened. The second one, my muscles were all torn open and I was basically laid up in bed and couldn't function." He is trying to strengthen his back but is only performing light workouts at this time. The team is hoping to have Jenks back around midseason.
