Well..we all knew it couldn't last all year didn't we? It looks like Joel Zumaya has injured himself. He entered the game int he 8th inning with the Royals putting up a bit of a fight. He walked the first batter on 4 straight pitches and couldn't keep the ball down. 2 pitches into the next batter out came the trainer and Jim Leyland.
From the appearances it looked like it might b e a pesky blister. Nobody has said anything conclusive yet, but some have wondered if it might be that old tendon injury again that kept him out for a long time before. This happens because he grips the ball so hard that he actually injures himself with the pressure.
Zoom has been a BEAST this season and losing him would be an incredible loss. So take your baby prenatal vitamin Zoom and get your ass back out there.
