Twins Spring Training Takes a Sad Turn

| No Comments

Relief pitcher, Joel Zumaya has a torn UCL and will miss the entire 2012 season reports The Star Tribune.
Terry Ryan, Twins general manager said that Zumaya will take a few days off to decide on his future with baseball in general. Ryan said Zumaya is frustrated with all the injuries he has had since breaking into the majors in 2006.
Zumaya has a year or so of therapy and rehab ahead of him.
The Twins signed Zumaya to a one-year contract worth $850,000, reported Pioneer Press. But only $400,000 was guaranteed because of shoulder and wrist injuries. Zumaya hasn't pitched more than 38.2 innings in any season since 2006.
The Twins are already being criticized for how poorly spring training is going, Zumaya's injury is yet another reason for the Twins to receive heat.
