Joel ZumayaAt some point you wonder if Joel Zumaya will ever throw another pitch in the major leagues.

Zumaya will go to orthopedic surgeon James Andrews' institute in Florida next week for further tests on his right arm. He will have a new CT scan and X-rays as well as an electromyogram to check for nerve damage.

"He continues to have a radiating pain down his right forearm," Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand told MLive.com's Steve Kornacki. "He said he would've been fine if he stopped at 24 [pitches], but on the 25th one he felt something."

Zumaya had surgery last spring to place a screw in his right elbow after a sickening injury on the mound in a game on June 29 in Minneapolis.

Zumaya appeared in one game in spring training, but felt pain in his elbow and forearm and was shut down.

He might not be done... but

One thing I don't think Joel Zumaya hasn't gotten enough credit for is his resiliency.  I understand that his violent motion makes him prone to injury, but he's proven he can come back and be effective for short periods of time.  My hope is that at some point of the season he's able to come back and electrify the Comerica Park faithful again - because if nothing else, he's exciting and reasonably effective.  If the Tigers make the playoffs - I'd rather have him on the roster to set up Joaquin Benoit and Jose Valverde.
