Zimmermann (7-8) allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.2 innings to take the loss Monday against the Twins. He struck out two. Zimmermann limited Minnesota to a single run through three innings but struggled in the fourth. The veteran allowed a leadoff double and five singles in the frame before getting the hook with two outs and his team down 5-0. Zimmermann continues to be an up-and-down fantasy option, and he'll carry a mediocre 4.41 ERA into his next start Saturday against the Royals.
Zimmermann (7-7) took the loss against the Astros on Tuesday, allowing five runs (four earned) and six hits over five innings. He struck out three and walked one. Zimmermann allowed all five runs via the home run, as he induced only two groundballs for the game. The 32-year-old has a 4.17 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across 116.2 innings heading into his next start against the Twins on Monday.
Zimmermann (7-6) picked up the win in Wednesday's 10-2 rout of the White Sox, scattering two hits and a walk over five scoreless innings while striking out three. A sixth-run fourth inning by the Tigers put the game out of reach, and allowed Zimmermann to hit the showers after throwing only 67 pitches (44 strikes) with his win well in hand. He'll take a 4.03 ERA -- but a 3.32 mark since the beginning of August -- into his next outing Tuesday at home against the Astros.
Zimmermann (6-6) allowed five earned runs on eight hits over six innings to take the loss Sunday against the White Sox. He struck out five. Most of the damage against Zimmermann came in a four-run third inning, with the big blow a two-run home run by Daniel Palka. Zimmermann has now alternated good and bad outings over his last four starts, making him hard to trust in fantasy at the moment. The veteran will be hard pressed to get back on track in his next appearance, which is scheduled for Friday on the road against a tough Yankees lineup.
Zimmermann (6-5) pitched six innings of one-run ball to pick up the win Tuesday against the Cubs. He allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out five. Zimmermann allowed a solo home run to Anthony Rizzo in his final inning of work, but the 32-year-old was otherwise unblemished in this one. Zimmermann has been a bit up and down recently, but his 4.18 ERA this season is still markedly better than the 6.08 mark he posted in 2017. He'll go for win No. 7 in his next outing Sunday against the White Sox.
