Zumaya checks out OK, rest another week
An examination from Dr. James Andrews found no major tructural damage in Joel Zumaya’s right elbow, bringing no doubt a sigh of relief from the Tigers reliever. The recommendation was at least another week without throwing in order to strengthen the arm.
The results reinforce the initial results taken last week, after scar tissue broke apart from the surgically repaired area of the elbow. What was expected to be a few days of rest has now gone more than a week, as inflammation hasn’t completely gone away. Zumaya won’t be cleared to throw until he’s completely pain free.
