Joel Zumaya's MRI revealed a torn UCL.
So what does that mean? Well, Zumaya will need to undergo the dreaded Tommy John surgery, via Jon Krawczynski.
What everyone feared: torn UCL for Zumaya. Tommy John surgery up next.
The MRI results have confirmed the worst-case scenario for Zumaya, who has had two surgeries on the right elbow in the past. With his injury history, the road to a comeback for Zumaya will surely be a long and difficult path. For the Twins, this news is particularly bad, as the team will now need to scramble to fill a major gap in the bullpen.
