Well the guy does throw 100 mph...Let's see, other players who throw as hard:
Hmmmm...What do these guys have in common? Not all of them had Tommy John's surgery, but the two guys who haven't(Harden and Prior) have barely played the last two seasons.
Don't be a homer and think that Zumaya is immune to injury.
So, throwing fastballs is the most common cause of needing TJ surgery??
I'm just trying to start up a discussion here and I agree that power pitchers usually get injured more or stay injured longer but I disagree with the rest. Otherwise, why do they dissuade young kids from throwing king balls or wait for guys coming off of the DL to throw them?? It's always fastballs first, right??
Well from what I've read, Zumaya throws his breaking ball pretty hard too.
