Zumaya & Rodney

Postby The Mighty Trow » Sun Jun 01, 2008 5:13 pm

per Yahoo Sports:
May 31 RHP Joel Zumaya, getting his injured shoulder back in shape, has another extended spring training appearance scheduled for this weekend and then could head out on a rehab assignment. Extended spring games end soon so both pitchers will need to begin rehab stints. Zumaya is expected to remain in Florida and start out at Class A Lakeland.

May 31 RHP Fernando Rodney is on the verge of beginning a rehab assignment. Rodney, on the 15-day disabled list since Opening Day with right shoulder tendinitis, threw another extended spring training game with President/CEO/GM Dave Dombrowski looking on. His velocity wasn't as high as previous games but his changeup was good, according to reports. "Rodney could very possibly be going out somewhere (on a rehab assignment) the next couple of days," Manager Jim Leyland said. Rodney is expected to pitch at Triple-A Toledo, Leyland said, "once everything is all cleared up."

Which of the two do you think will have a more immediate fantasy impact? Think either of them will get the 8th?
