Zumaya now "highly unlikely" for opener
He threw another side session today, apparently was fine. The next step, according to manager Jim Leyland, is whether to have Zumaya throw another side session or to start having him throw in camp games.
If that sounds like a timetable that isn’t going to have him ready for Major League games when the season starts in 11 days, you’re not the only one thinking that. Leyland said it’s “highly unlikely” that Zumaya will be ready for Opening Day.
