      Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: AL Pitcher of the Month for April

      Zimmermann was named the American League Pitcher of the Month for April after going 5-0 with a 0.55 ERA in five starts for the Tigers. He struck out 23 in 33 innings. He's the first Tigers' pitcher to earn the award since Justin Verlander won it in September 2012.

      Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Improves to 4-0

      Zimmermann (4-0) continued his splendid start to the season, allowing three runs - one earned - in 6.2 innings Monday against the Athletics. He allowed seven hits, walked one, and struck out one. Zimmermann finally allowed his first run of the season, bringing his ERA to 0.35 through four starts. The one strikeout was a bit of a disappointment after striking out eight in his previous start, but the one walk shows his command was still strong in this start. He'll look for his fifth win Saturday against the struggling Twins.

      Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Opens season with 19.1 scoreless innings

      Zimmermann (3-0) turned in his third consecutive scoreless outing to open the season Wednesday, striking out eight Royals while working around seven hits and a walk over 6.1 innings in a 3-2 win. The bullpen made it close in the end, but Zimmermann gave the Tigers everything they could ask for in this one, stretching his season-opening streak of scoreless innings to 19.1. He only put up a 7:5 K:BB over the first two, but showed far better bat-missing ability in this one, and against a Royals team that's one of the hardest in the league to strike out. With the light-hitting A's up next, it's quite conceivable that Zimmermann could extend the streak.

      Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Stays sharp in second start

      Zimmerman (2-0) allowed six hits over six scoreless innings while walking two and striking out four in Thursday's win over the Pirates. Zimmermann, who signed a five-year deal to spearhead the front of Tigers rotation, has yet to see an opponent cross home plate through his first 13 innings on the mound for his new team, ESPN reports. The 29-year-old is making $110 million look like a wise investment. He'll go for 3-0 next week against the reigning World Series champs in Kansas City.

      Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Shines in Tigers' Debut

      Zimmermann tossed seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 win over the Yankees on Friday afternoon. He allowed two hits and three walks while striking out three. Following a disappointing 2015 season, Zimmermann got his tenure with the Tigers off to a grand start. He allowed just a pair of singles, and one of those was erased when caught stealing, as he threw 63 of 99 pitches for strikes. He'll look to keep things going next time out against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

      Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Will be a workhorse for Tigers

      Zimmerman is adjusting well to his new team and will start Saturday's spring training game against his old team, the Washington Nationals. Zimm is going to be a workhorse for the Michigan boys and a valuable fantasy asset this season. There will be an impact on his numbers moving from the National League to the American, but he's bound to deliver a better ERA and K/9 rate than he did in a slightly depressed 2015.

      Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Agrees to deal with Tigers

      Zimmermann has agreed to terms on a deal with the Tigers that's expected to net him around $110 million over five years, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reports. Zimmermann's deal is just pending a physical, and there's nothing to suggest he could fail it. Assuming all goes off without a hitch, he'll join Justin Verlander atop the Tigers rotation heading into 2016, though it's always possible the Tigers aren't done. Zimmermann had his worst campaign in the last five seasons in 2015, with his ERA topping 3.50 for the first time since 2010 when he broke into the league. The 29-year-old's fastball velocity also dropped over half a mile per hour, which could partially have contributed to his decline. If he can make adjustments to account for it, there's no reason to believe he can't have another effective season for his new team in 2016.

      Jordan Zimmermann: Declines qualifying offer

      Zimmermann has declined the qualifying offer extended to him by the Nationals, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Zimmermann had a bit of a down season in 2015, with his ERA rising a full run to 3.66 from his 2014 campaign of 2.66. His strikeout rate also saw a dip, which could be a result of his average fastball velocity dropping over half a mile per hour. The 29-year-old will still likely have plenty of interested parties on the open market, but probably won't command as much as if he hit free agency a year earlier.

      Jordan Zimmermann: Extended qualifying offer

      Zimmermann was given a qualifying offer by the Nationals on Friday, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports. Zimmermann took a bit of a step back in 2015 after four consecutive seasons of a 3.25 ERA or lower, but he still had a strong campaign en route to a 3.66 ERA and 7.3 K/9. It comes as little surprise that the Nationals tended a qualifying offer, but Zimmermann will almost definitely decline it to test the free agent market, where he figures to be one of the more coveted pitchers.
