Zumaya will be back this weekend... as a long reliever!?!?!?

WTF

Leyland said in spring training that he would prefer to use Zumaya in a multi-inning role this year
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

What were you expecting exactly?

Not going to start. Probably about 3rd in line to close and still 2nd in line to be the regular setup man.

hes not gonna jump right into the setup or closer roles but hell definitely make the leash waaaay shorter for rodney and co. if zumaya pitches well and proves hes healthy, one slip up by either the setup or closer and hes moving in

got to wonder if you really want him piling on the innings given his injury history :-?

im definitely thinking hell start off getting the 7th/8th inning duties. at first hell prolly just come in whenever they need an inning to see where hes at and once he shows hes healthy hell be put in an important spot to test his metal and if/when he proves his velocity is back, hell takeover as the setup man and once rodney falters, hell step into the closer role. hes definitely the tigers closer of the future so i doubt they jerk him around or pile up meaningless innings on his already injury plagued arm.

i personally dumped brandon wood for him since wood is being misused terribly in la.

I think the innings will help his arm in the long run
