Zumaya cuts throwing session short

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Twins right-hander Joel Zumaya cut his throwing session short and walked off the field with head trainer Rick McWane on Saturday.

Zumaya, who was throwing a live bullpen session against Drew Butera, appeared to suffer an elbow injury.

Zumaya declined to speak with reporters after meeting with trainers. He’s scheduled to get checked out by team doctors this afternoon.

We’re scheduled to meet with GM Terry Ryan shortly to get an update from the doctors.

Zumaya hasn’t pitched in the Majors since 2010, and missed all of last season after undergoing elbow surgery during Spring Training.

UPDATE: Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Zumaya is expected to get an MRI tomorrow. We’re meeting with Terry Ryan at 1:30 P.M. ET.
