Get Well Soon, Joel Zumaya [Video]

After throwing a 99-mph heater to Delmon Young in the eighth inning of the Detroit Tigers' 7-5 win at Target Field Monday night, Joel Zumaya fell to the ground, clutching his elbow and wincing in pain.

Even his catcher Gerald Laird, who was 60 feet away behind the plate at the time, said he heard a pop. Zumaya was then helped off the field, and more information should be available shortly. However, it doesn't look good so good for the Motor City's Guitar Hero.

Update: According to the Associated Press, ZumZum is out for the season. The team has recalled reliever Casey Fien from the AAA Toledo Mud Hens; the righty will be on hand in the bullpen for game 2 against the Minnesota Twins.
