Joel Zumaya faced live batters today for the first time this spring but his session ended early do to an apparent injury. He walked off the mound with head trainer Rick McWane after only 15 pitches. There is no official word on the injury but according to sources it appears to be elbow related. Zumaya will have an MRI tomorrow. The often injured Zumaya hasn’t pitched in the majors since suffering an elbow injury at Target Field as a member of the Tigers in June 2010.
