Zimmermann (biceps) is moving his rehab assignment to High-A Aberdeen on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. The southpaw is expected to need at least two rehab starts before he could potentially rejoin the Orioles' big-league roster. Zimmermann is still likely at least 10 days away from being activated.
The Orioles assigned Zimmermann (biceps) to the rookie-level Florida Complex League on Monday to begin a rehab program. Zimmermann looks to be ready for game action after being shut down for just over a month with left biceps tendinitis. The rookie southpaw will most likely require at least two rehab outings in the minors to ramp up for his pitch count, making mid-to-late August a reasonable estimate for his return to Baltimore's rotation. Before hitting the injured list, Zimmermann went 4-4 with a 4.83 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and a 53:20 K:BB across 59.2 innings with the Orioles.
Zimmermann (biceps) could return in early-to-mid-August, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. This is the third time since he was placed on the IL on June 18 that the O's have estimated he was two or three weeks away, so we'll take this timetable with a grain of salt. Once healthy, Zimmermann will likely be sent to the minors to build back up.
Zimmermann's (biceps) rehab has been pushed back another week or two, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. The Orioles announced in late June that Zimmermann would miss two or three more weeks, and his recovery will extend another week or two as a precautionary measure. A clear timetable for the southpaw's return to game action hasn't yet been established, but he'll likely be sidelined at least through the All-Star break.
Zimmerman (biceps) will miss two or three more weeks, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports. Zimmerman hasn't pitched in over a week due to left biceps tendinitis, and he's still not particularly close to returning to action. He's on track to return in early or mid-July.
