Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Suffers through short outing
Zimmermann (0-4) took the loss and allowed five runs on five hits and three walks Thursday night against the Red Sox. He struck out two over three innings.
Zimmermann's start didn't last long, as he surrendered two runs in the second and three more in the third before getting yanked. He racked up 77 pitches through just three frames. The 32-year-old has hit a rough patch of late, giving up four or more runs in each of his previous three outings, despite allowing just one run over his first two starts of 2019. After the game, manager Ron Gardenhire stated that Zimmermann felt "elbow discomfort" during his start, Fox Sports Detroit reports. This is concerning news for the right-hander, who had Tommy John surgery in 2009. He's expected to undergo further testing Friday, per Chris McCosky of The Detroit News.
