The Orioles have not ruled out the possibility of Zimmermann (ankle) returning before the end of the season, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Zimmermann was initially sidelined with biceps tendinitis in mid-June, and just when he was on the brink of being reinstated in mid-August, he suffered a severe ankle sprain. The Orioles have already alluded to the possibility of his season being over, but Friday's update indicates the club is still holding out hope that the southpaw can return to log innings in some form during the season's final weeks. However, until he resumes mound work, the 27-year-old will remain without a concrete timeline.
