Did you see Zumaya is getting Tommy John?


And the Twins are paying for it, as they should, but still unclear on whether moving to the 60-day DL or released.

Yeah, I'm glad Zumaya is going ahead with the surgery. If it doesn't work, he's no worse off and he can live with it knowing he didn't walk away too soon. Nice inning for Waldrop there.

Towles 2 R HR puts the Twins ahead of the Rays in the other game.

Ray Chang down at second base -- looks like a knee to the face or something on a slide.

So, that was a good game, huh? :) Remember when Lars Anderson was a top prospect?

When you have tons of pitchers in camp and coaches looking for any way possible to separate guys, you really don't want to start out with an inning like Bulger had. Ouch.

No kidding. He would need a big shovel to dig himself out of this one...

Obviously not a great performance, but he'll likely get 9-10 more outings. We'll have to see if he can throw some strikes. Clearly that's the key.

He will be lucky to get a third outing if he repeats this one. Too many pitchers in camp to be patient with the underperformers.

I agree with Seth that throwing strikes will be key. His pitches had a lot of movement, which is great. But if he cant make sure they move within the zone when he needs them to, it's wasted movement.

Finding the plate is not a new problem for Bulger.
