He'll either be in the rotation (doubtful) or the closer in the near future. I seriously doubt that he'll be the closer next year with what Jones is getting paid unless Jones is traded, hurt, retires, or is ineffective. I do think Zumaya would bypass Rodney if Jones is somehow unseated next year. I really don't see the need of Zumaya starting with all of the young starting pitching talent has on the horizon (Ledezma, Maroth, Miller, Sanchez, Minor, Tata, etc.) but it has been talked about. To me, Zumaya arm motion and velocity could spell injury as a starter (ala Liriano except maybe more so). I think Zumaya is in the same situation that KRod found himself in being behind Percival with the Angels a few years ago. If Jones stays and is effective then I predict Zumaya will be the closer in 2008 but probably one of the best, if not the best, 2007 MR in the game in terms of fantasy and reality if he stays healthy. He's more valuable than Scott Shields right now in my book.
