Zumaya and Rodney, Anything But Spectacular in Returns From Injury

timot andarieseCorrespondent IJune 3, 2016

The long anticipated wait for the return of Detroit Tigers relievers Fernando Rodney and Joel Zumaya came last week and it has been anything but spectacular. Rodney's ERA is a staggering 33.75 in 1.1 innings has given up five runs on 3 walks, 3 hits, one of which was a homer. His inconsistency is the only that has transcended since his injury. Joel Zumaya, in two and two-thirds innings has a 6.75 ERA. While recording two strike outs, giving up five walks and four hits. Granted he has his velocity, but he has no command/ control. If their failures continue to mount, I wonder if the Tigers will put them on the DL to work out their kinks? Will the Tigers make a move to bolster their bullpen? As part of the Tigers faithful, I hope Dombrowski will make another classic move that will bring us the savior of the season. With only 2 months before the trade deadline, there's not much time for maneuver.
