Joel Zumaya hasn’t decided if he’ll retire yet

The last time Joel Zumaya threw a baseball in a game that mattered was June 28, 2010.  Given his injury over the weekend, if he does so again, it won’t be until 2013 at the earliest. Facing yet another rehab has to seem horrifying to the guy, so it would be totally understandable if he just decided to hang it up.

But he hasn’t figured that out yet. He told reporters this morning that he’s still thinking about it and that it’s a family decision.  He’ll talk with other pitchers who have undergone Tommy John surgery to see what’s what.

Some guys are just snake bit. It’s a shame that a pitcher as fun to watch as Zumaya is one of them.

    He seems like a good guy, and he was very talented. I hope for the best for him either way.
