Joel Zumaya Speaks

I don't have XM Radio, so didn't hear Joel Zumaya's appearance on MLB Home Plate yesterday. But both the Freep and Detroit News ran excerpts from his interview in today's editions. (Actually, there must have been a press release because both articles have the exact same clips.)

Zumaya says everything's going well with his rehabilitation.

"I'm actually doing real well, therapy's going great, I got 95 percent of my range of motion back and by the end of this month I'll start throwing the baseball."

So far, so good. And given what happened with several of their pitchers last season (Jeremy Bonderman, Nate Robertson, Kenny Rogers, Fernando Rodney), I'm sure the Tigers are going to make sure Zumaya doesn't try to be a cowboy and rush back too early.
