Zumaya will not throw Saturday
Turns out Joel Zumaya will not throw in Saturday’s simulated game. He has what head athletic trainer Kevin Rand likened to a cramp between his shoulder and his neck, so he’s going to be held back a day or two. Fernando Rodney also will not throw Saturday; Jim Leyland said team officials decided he had been stretched earlier in the week, so they’re going to hold him back.
Meanwhile, Casper Wells was not available Friday. He has had lingering pain in his elbow after a diving attempt earlier in camp and was getting it checked out by a doctor Friday. No word yet on the diagnosis.
