Twins To Sign Zumaya
The Twins have come to terms with free agent relief pitcher Joel Zumaya on a 1-year contract worth $800,000 with incentives that will boost the deal to $1.7 Million. Zumaya fractured his throwing arm in 2010 while pitching with the Tigers against the Twins and hasn’t pitched in a major league game since.
He was 2-1 with a 2.58 ERA in 38 1/3 innings with 34 strikeouts in 2010. Zumaya was clocked at 100 MPH with his fastball prior to the injury and has had his fastball clocked between 92-95 MPH recently. Zumaya is expected to be a late inning relief option for the Twins. He needs to pass his physical to make the deal official.
