September 12, 2006
DETROIT (AP) -- Tigers reliever Joel Zumaya has a sprained right wrist and won't be available for a few days.

"He has a tendinitis in his right wrist, which is causing some tightness in his forearm," team trainer Kevin Rand said Tuesday. A doctor examined Zumaya on Monday and the right-hander received a cortisone shot. He will not pick up a baseball until at least Friday, Rand said.


I'd be surprised if the first time he 'picks up' a ball is on the mound during an MLB game. This has a bad smell.

No Zumaya tonight

DETROIT -- The Tigers still don't believe Joel Zumaya's condition is serious, but after the right-hander played catch this afternoon, he said he's not ready to pitch.

``It didn't feel too good,'' Zumaya said. ``I didn't feel the strength I had.''

Zumaya could pitch tonight.

DETROIT - Matt Stairs joined the Detroit Tigers Friday. Joel Zumaya could return as soon as tonight.

Zumaya hasn’t pitched in a week, because of tendinitis that led to him getting a cortisone shot in his right wrist. The Tigers had hoped he’d be available Friday, but after Zumaya played catch Friday afternoon, he came back saying: “It didn’t feel too good.”

After Friday night’s 17-2 Tiger win over Baltimore, Zumaya clarified what he meant.

“There’s nothing wrong,” he said. “There’s no pain. It’s just that I hadn’t thrown in five days.”

Zumaya said he plans to play catch again this afternoon, and could pitch tonight.
