Joel Zumaya took a big step in his latest comeback today, throwing for scouts in Houston to show he’s recovered from a fractured elbow that’s kept him out since mid-2010.
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that “more than 50 scouts” were in attendance, passing along word that Zumaya threw 93-96 miles per hour.
One of the scouts there told Rosenthal that Zumaya “will get a job” based on the performance, although it remains to be seen if he can convince a team to give him a big-league deal.
