Zumaya to be activated Tuesday
Leyland confirmed that, but it can only do so much. Leyland was not happy with his hitters’ approach today, saying they were taking strikes and swinging at balls with runners in scoring position. They tried to use baserunning to create opportunities, but they couldn’t finish them off.
Polanco had another workout with mixed results today, and while Leyland is hoping to have him back in the lineup Tuesday, he’s not as sure about it now. If he is back on Tuesday, look for Ryan Raburn to start at third base and give Brandon Inge at least one day off.
Kenny Rogers plans on throwing off the mound Tuesday to see how his elbow feels. If it’s good, he’ll throw again on Thursday or Friday. If he’s good from there, he’ll push to be activated for next week with no Minor League rehab outings.
