Twins Zumaya unsure if he will undergo surgery

Quote:
A day after learning he tore his ulnar collateral ligament, Twins right-hander Joel Zumaya said Monday he still hasn't decided whether he'll undergo Tommy John surgery to continue his career.

Zumaya, 27, has already undergone two elbow surgeries, two shoulder surgeries and finger surgery since making his debut with the Tigers in 2006, and he isn't sure if he wants to undergo another one. And even if Zumaya does opt to have the surgery, he's still not sure if he'll try to make yet another comeback.

"That's going to be a family decision," Zumaya said. "Right now, perspective is probably not. I know I'm young, but I'm going to probably be going on six surgeries if I get another one. I'm only 27 years old and I've taken a lot of wear and tear on my body, especially my arm, and then rehab -- it's a lot out of you. So I have a little 2 1/2-year-old; maybe it's time to move on. I'm a pretty dang good fisherman, so I might pursue professional fishing."

This guy can't seem to stay healthy, that's unfortunate.
