Over the past few weeks, Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos has orchestrated an organizational overhaul of Pygmalion proportions. Essentially, he's turned a perennial non-threat in the American League East into the division's foremost...uh, well the baseball equivalent of Audrey Hepburn. You know, she played Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.

Since brokering a massive trade with the Miami Marlins that brought over Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes, and Mark Buehrle (et al), signing Melky Cabrera to a two-year deal, and swapping two of the team's best prospects (catcher Travis d'Arnaud and pitcher Noah Syndergaard) for reigning NL Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey, Anthopoulos has put his team in a position to contend for a playoff spot for the first time in recent memory.

But despite that offseason influx of talent, there's an outstanding concern that this rapid transformation has managed to divert everyone's attention away from: the health of Jose Bautista.

Normally, it'd be easy to overlook the health of one player when you're sporting a revamped roster replete with shiny new toys. But when that player is responsible for more home runs than any other human since 2010, it's a different story.

An Eliza Doolittle in his own right, the journeyman-turned-superstar missed virtually the entire second half of 2012 after sustaining an injury to his left wrist just four days after the All-Star break*. On July 16, while batting against the Yankees' David Robertson in the eighth inning of a 2-2 game, Bautista ripped a seemingly innocuous foul ball down the left field line. Then the right fielder proceeded to double over, clutching his arm in pain as Jays fans rolled their eyes to the heavens, their faith in Murphy's Law confirmed.
