I’m not sure that this is news to anyone, but don’t expect Zumaya to pitch anytime soon, or this season, or perhaps never again.
As unsurprising as this news is, it’s still difficult to swallow because I don’t think any of us will forget the magic he brought in 2006 nor what he meant to that WS run. RIP, Joel Zumaya right arm.

Yes, if it becomes true it will be a very sad tragedy as the more I learned about the person Joel Zumaya, the more I was impressed on his love of and respect for the game. Inasmuch, I hope that this prediction doesn’t come true and that we see him work his way back onto the mound.

I hope he comes back too, It was electric when he came in. It will most likely not be with the Tigers. His contract is up and it seems unlikely that the sign him unless he gives them something to sign with a recovery or prognosis.

Judging from that picture he has taken off a lot of weight.

I recall reading an article about how Joel and his Mom drove together from California to Lakeland for Spring Training (in 2007 or 2008?). The article did a great job on capturing Joel’s excitement and devotion for another year of baseball. Again, I hope he will be back.

As far as I have heard, there is no structural problems. If it is only some scar tissue broken loose…….he should be able to come back after maybe minor surgery, rehab, strengthening…..and hopefully we can be treated to the thrill and electricity of that 100+ fastball.

This kid was/is a tremendous talent, and a really great guy. His “kid next door” attitude was very refreshing. (we injured himself just before the world series playing air guitar! Everything he did/does, he gives it 120%!!) I remember watching in awe as the radar gun pops up 101, 102, even 104–and consistently. Unfortunately, he had a very violent motion. It worked–one of the hardest throwing pitchers ever to play the game–but possible at a horrible, career shortening cost.
Let’s hope for the best, for the Tigers, for Joes, for tiger fans. There may still be a great career ahead of him, but, even if not, God I loved to watch that kid throw the fastball! Congratulations, Joel, and we all wish you the best.

Joel and Grandy used to room together in ’06. Remember that? They had a small apartment in Detroit. Grandy used to complain it was too small. I remember all the young ladies used to hang around the BP. They just loved him and so did most of the ladies. I haven’t seen anyone who brought the excitement like Zoom. Hope we get to see him again.

I suspect this obituary is being written a little early. He’s had a number of problems, but recovered from them all except the elbow. He was fine last year before the elbow problem — people for get this — and dominant. It’s not like it’s a single chronic injury that comes back year after year. He’s young enough to come back — let’s all stop playing doctor.
If Dombrowski is willing to re-sign Inge after double knee surgery, I should hope there’s a thought to giving Joel a shot next year, provided he’s able to come back this summer.

When do we get the “Carlos Guillen to the 60-day DL, maybe forever?” post?
