Yet another setback for Zimmerman

ARLINGTON - Jeff Zimmerman is taking a month off, then he will resume his throwing program with the high hopes of being fully ready for spring training.


That was the recommendation and diagnosis of Dr. James Andrews, who examined Zimmerman recently and found nothing seriously wrong with the area in and around the right elbow. Zimmerman will have a bone scan next week as a precautionary measure, but right now the plan is for a month of rest.

"He said he has seen cases like this before where there was nothing definite or no news from the tests, just a case of overwork and overuse," Zimmerman said Wednesday. "My arm and body need rest, so that's the plan we're going to follow."


Zimmerman underwent "Tommy John" surgery on the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow July 30, 2002. The Rangers had hoped he would pitch at some point during the second half of the 2003 season, but he continued to have soreness and discomfort in the area of the elbow.


Zimmerman believes he tried too hard to come back too fast.


"My gut feeling is I just need a month off," Zimmerman said. "I've been going after it for two years, and I haven't had time off. It's time to let my body and arm regenerate."


Andrews found nothing wrong with the radial nerve in the elbow. A problem there could have required surgery. The ulnar nerve has some inflammation but nothing major. The repaired ligament remains strong.


"I was told to go golfing and fishing, but I don't like to do either one of those things," Zimmerman said.



I've told people to get Cordero while you can. I hope all of you are listening. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Yes doctor, there will be a war.

About a month before Urbina was traded last year, I told everyone to go get Cordero while they could. Those who listened, reaped the reward. Those who didn't, were stuck.

Nice job getting him. ;-D

well our league is so deep that he was already a starter on another team just as a middle reliever. I didn't see it here, just with other reports and my knowledge, :)

I traded for him, and he is a stud!!!
