LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland says he's making no predictions about whether injury-plagued reliever Joel Zumaya will be ready to pitch on Opening Day.
Leyland said Monday he's as stumped by Zumaya's status as everybody else.
A day earlier, Leyland told reporters Zumaya likely would not be ready for the start of the regular season.
Zumaya is a talented but injury-prone 24-year-old power-pitching right-hander who has missed much of the past two seasons. He was scratched from an intrasquad game Saturday because of a neck cramp.
His best year came in 2006, when he was 6-3 with a 1.94 ERA in 62 appearances.
Since then, injuries have been a major issue.
