Zumaya and Willis rehab progress

Joel Zumaya is taking his rehab up I-75 to Toledo and Dontrelle Willis will join up with Lakeland next week.

Zumaya hasn’t been particularly effective or accurate in his 2 appearances in Lakeland, and I’m a little surprised he’s moving up so soon. I thought they would have at least wanted him to throw on back to back days.

Willis hasn’t been anywhere on the field, but he’ll take those first potential steps back on Tuesday.

  2. Good luck to both of them, but I’m not holding my breath on either.

  4. Take whatever time they need. Really. Need more time? No problem.

  5. That was just getting him in games early. He still only pitched 1 or 1+ innings in each “start”
