Well, That Was Quick…

 Well, after just 13 warm-up pitchers in his first bullpen session of spring training, new Twins acquisition Joel Zumaya torn a ligament in his throwing shoulder and will be out for the rest of the season and probably his career barring extensive rehab.

On one hand, I feel really bad for the guy.  I mean, he’s tried to come back so many times that this must be a crushing blow for him.

On the other hand, I sincerely hope that this is not a harbinger of things to come for the Twins.  Pure logic would indicate that one player’s injury cannot “cause” another, but superstition is a powerful force in baseball clubhouses.  If a team feels as if they have been bit by the injury bug (see: 2011 Twins), then every scratch turns into a DL stint.

But here’s some good news to leave off with for now…

 Justin Morneau has had four good days in a row (knock on wood)!!

Spring Has Sprung

      

Spring has sprung, indeed!
