      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.

      Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann drops game to Braves

      Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann went six innings in a loss to the Braves on Wednesday, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk. He struck out one batter. Wednesday's outing provided a rather forgettable end to Zimmermann's 2015 season. He pitched to contact and kept the ball on the ground, something he didn't do his last time out when he allowed three homers. The offense did him no favors, managing six hits against Williams Perez and the Braves' bullpen. While this season was a step back for Zimmermann after his brilliant 2014, he's still going to be a hot commodity on the open market this winter.

      Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann gets roughed up in loss to Phillies

      Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann was battered for six runs on six hits, walking two and striking out six while lasting just five innings in an 8-2 loss to the Phillies on Friday night. For Zimmermann (13-9, 3.68 ERA) the same spectres that have haunted him much of the year were again a factor in the poor outing as he allowed three more long balls. He has now allowed 23 home runs in 195 2/3 innings (he allowed just 13 all of last year) as he struggles with his command and leaves too many pitches out over the plate. Many expected Zimmermann to take a step forward this season, and at times he has displayed excellent stuff, but he hasn't consistently performed up to expectations.

      Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann shines in Saturday victory

      Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann performed poorly in his last two efforts in earning wins. He won again Saturday night against Miami, but this time around pitched beautifully. Zimmermann surrendered just one run on seven hits in seven innings to handcuff the Marlins. He walked one and fanned four. He would have hurled shutout ball if not for a mammoth 453-foot blast by Justin Bour in the seventh inning. Zimmerman improved his record to 11-8 with the win and lowered his ERA to 3.45.
