Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Could start Thursday

Zimmermann (neck) expects to start Thursday against the Twins if his next bullpen session goes well, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

He has been out almost two weeks with a neck issue, but has been throwing on the side and is poised to rejoin the rotation next week. Zimmermann's 6.18 ERA is by far the worst ERA in the majors among qualified starters and he also has a bottom-five strikeout rate (14.2 percent), so he should be avoided in most formats even if he returns this season.
