Zumaya to have screw inserted in shoulder

Turns out Joel Zumaya will need surgery on his elbow after all, but it isn’t expected to push back his timetable for a return next spring. Zumaya will have a screw inserted to stabilize his fractured olecranon at the tip of the elbow. Dr. Stephen Lemos will perform the surgery next Monday at Detroit Medical Center.

Monday: Tigers vs. Orioles

It’s a standard Tigers lineup on a not-so-standard hot day in Detroit, where the temperature should be well into the ’90s. Still, with the Tigers lineup pitted against Kevin Millwood, it should be a good matchup for baseball.
