Spring Training: Umpire Jim Joyce is Back

Umpire Jim Joyce is officially off the Disabled List after working Friday's Spring Training debut matchup of the Cactus League's Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics. Joyce joined HP Umpire Doug Eddings and fellow MLB umpires Brian Runge and Ron Kulpa on the bases. As is customary during Spring Training, Joyce, Runge and Kulpa rotated through the three base positions throughout the contest.

Joyce had suffered a season-ending knee injury last year, working his last 2011 contest on June 9th. AAA fill-in John Tumpane was Joyce's replacement. Prior to his injury, Joyce had compiled four ejections and 16 points in 2011's UEFL.
