Another two-strikeout inning for Zumaya
The numbers on Joel Zumaya from his rehab outing with Triple-A Toledo Wednesday night look pretty similar to Tuesday with a scoreless inning and two strikeouts. He gave up a hit this time, a two-out double down the left-field line off a mid-90s fastball, but ended the threat with a called third strike on Chris Barnwell.
Zumaya threw 13 of his 18 pitches for strikes.
Where he goes from here has yet to be announced. The Tigers will evaluate him once they’re sure he feels OK tomorrow, but his ability to pitch effectively on back-to-back days has always been seen as the last step to make sure he’s ready for the big leagues again.
