  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Quality start in loss

    Zimmermann (2-2) gave up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out two in six innings Saturday against the Tigers. He took the loss.

    He gave up home runs to Eric Haase and Willi Castro but was able to hold on to go six innings for the second start in a row and third time this season. Zimmerman had only given up one home run in his prior six starts. The two strikeouts were easily a season low, as he has struck out at least four in every other start. He projects to face the Yankees at home next week.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Earns second win

    Zimmermann (2-1) got the win during Sunday's 4-2 victory over Kansas City in Game 2 of a doubleheader, allowing two runs on five hits with five strikeouts in six innings.

    Baltimore scored three runs in the first inning to provide all the support Zimmermann would need Sunday, and the 27-year-old was able to limit the damage to a run apiece in the second and sixth. He's now recorded quality starts in two of his last three turns and tossed a season-high 85 pitches with 56 finding the zone Sunday. A 2.79 FIP validates an impressive 2.67 ERA as Zimmermann looks to keep things rolling against Detroit next weekend.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Productive over five frames

    Zimmermann pitched five innings, giving two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in Tuesday's loss to the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.

    Zimmermann tossed three scoreless innings to open Tuesday's contest, surrendering his first run on a Jose Miranda double in the top of the fourth frame. He later gave up another run on a Jorge Polanco two-out single in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has now allowed two or fewer earned runs in all five of his outings this season, posting a 1.48 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 25 strikeouts over 24.1 innings. Zimmermann has operated as the Orioles' most effective starter so far in 2022 and he tentatively lines up to face the Royals on Sunday.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Takes loss against Yankees

    Zimmermann (1-1) allowed four runs (zero earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out five across 4.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Yankees.

    Zimmermann held the Yankees scoreless through four innings, and he allowed only two hits and a walk in that span. However, things unraveled in the fifth frame, as he allowed three hits to the first six batters he faced -- though the Baltimore defense also committed two errors behind him. Zimmermann has gotten off to a hot start this season, as he has now allowed zero earned runs in three of his first four outings. Overall, he has maintained a 0.93 ERA and 21:6 K:BB across 19.1 frames.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Collects first win

    Zimmermann (1-0) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings, earning the win Friday versus the Angels.

    Zimmermann covered five scoreless innings, but he ran out of steam a bit at the end. He exited with no outs in the seventh inning after Anthony Rendon's two-run blast brought the Angels within two runs. The Orioles' bullpen was able to maintain the lead, earning Zimmermann his first win of the season to go with a pair of no-decisions through three starts. He's been very effective with a 1.20 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB across 15 innings, and per the team's PR department, the southpaw's 14-inning scoreless streak to begin the season was the longest by a Baltimore pitcher since Jim Palmer in 1978, which is good company to be keeping. Zimmermann is projected to face the Yankees next week.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Tosses five scoreless frames

    Zimmermann allowed four hits and two walks while striking out six in five scoreless innings during Sunday's win over the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Zimmermann built up to 75 pitches during Sunday's outing and allowed just six baserunners, but he was unable to pick up the win since the Orioles didn't score any runs until the bottom of the eighth inning during the pitching duel. The left-hander has now struck out 10 in nine scoreless frames during his first two starts in 2022, but he's been forced to settle for no-decisions in each outing. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against the Angels on Friday.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Tosses four shutout innings

    Zimmermann allowed three hits and two walks over four scoreless innings in Monday's win over the Brewers. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    The only time Zimmermann was in much danger Monday came during the third inning. He walked Christian Yelich to load the bases with two outs but escaped the jam unharmed. The 27-year-old southpaw played 14 games with the Orioles last season and never recorded a scoreless appearance. Zimmermann is expected to face the Yankees at home this weekend.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Clinches rotation spot

    Manager Brandon Hyde said Zimmermann will be included in the Orioles' season-opening rotation and will make his first start in Monday's home opener versus the Brewers, Zachary Silver of reports.

    Despite serving up three home runs across his three Grapefruit League outings, Zimmermann's tidy 9:2 K:BB over his eight innings looks like it was enough for him to break camp as the team's No. 4 starter. In what seems to be an annual tradition, the Orioles are short on impact arms, so the bar will be low for Zimmermann to maintain a regular starting role if the Orioles aren't willing to rush top pitching prospects Grayson Rodriguez and DL Hall to the majors. The 27-year-old lefty turned in a rather underwhelming rookie season in 2021, finishing with a 5.04 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 11.9 K-BB% in 64.1 innings.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Strengthens case for rotation

    Zimmermann allowed one unearned run on one hit and struck out two over three innings in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Rays. He posted zero walks.

    Zimmermann has logged five innings across two spring starts, with Wednesday's being the far better of the two after his first one was delayed by a stomach bug. Manager Brandon Hyde designated John Means, Jordan Lyles and Tyler Wells as part of the Orioles' rotation to begin the 2022 campaign, leaving Zimmermann and a handful of other pitchers to compete for two spots. The 27-year-old southpaw posted a 5.04 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 56:22 K:BB across 64.1 innings in 14 appearances (13 starts) last season. At least initially, he may need to work with a piggyback reliever until he can get more fully stretched out after a condensed spring training.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: In line to pitch Wednesday

    Zimmermann (illness) is scheduled to pitch Wednesday versus the Rays, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Zimmermann was forced out of his last appearance after two innings while dealing with a stomach bug. He appears to have put the illness behind him and will likely try to stretch out a bit more in Wednesday's outing.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Dealing with stomach issue

    Zimmermann (illness) exited his outing early on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Zimmermann started Thursday's contest against the Red Sox and struggled through two innings, allowing three earned runs on two hits and a walk -- though he also struck out four. This issue shouldn't affect his ability to take his first turn through the rotation once the regular season gets underway.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Chased in first inning

    Zimmerman (4-5) allowed three runs on five hits and recorded one strikeout while taking a loss against Toronto on Sunday. He recorded two outs.

    George Springer launched a leadoff shot off Zimmermann to begin the first inning. Toronto scored two more runs in the frame and ended Zimmermann's day after just 28 pitches. He posted a 3.24 ERA in his previous five outings but saw his season ERA climb to 5.04 through 64.1 frames. Zimmermann finishes the 2021 campaign with a 56:21 K:BB and a 1.48 WHIP.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Settles for no-decision

    Zimmermann allowed one run on two hits and a pair of walks while striking out two across four innings during Tuesday's win over the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Zimmermann's only damage of the night came from a solo home run off the bat of Kyle Schwarber in the second inning. The southpaw left the game poised for the loss but was rescued by his offense, leaving him with a no-decision. It was Zimmermann's first major-league outing since mid-June due to biceps tendinitis and a severe ankle sprain. The 26-year-old took over the rotation spot that belonged to Keegan Akin, who is out for the season with a left adductor strain, and tentatively lines up for another start Sunday at Toronto.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Activated for Tuesday's start

    Zimmermann (ankle) was activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    The club announced over the weekend that Zimmermann would return from a three-month absence to start Tuesday, and now he's officially been added back to the 28-man and 40-man rosters. The southpaw built up to four innings in his latest rehab outing with Triple-A Norfolk last Thursday, so he should have a chance to qualify for a win if he can be efficient.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: On track to start Sunday

    Zimmermann is expected to start Sunday in the Orioles' season finale against the Blue Jays in Toronto, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    After a three-and-a-half-month stint on the injured list due to biceps tendinitis and a severe ankle sprain, Zimmermann rejoined the Baltimore rotation Tuesday. He turned in a respectable showing en route to taking a no-decision against the Red Sox, working four innings while allowing a run on two hits and two walks. Zimmermann shouldn't face any significant restrictions with his workload Sunday after building up to 70 pitches Tuesday.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Joining rotation Tuesday

    Zimmermann (ankle) is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    He gave up five earned runs while striking out nine in 6.1 innings through two rehab starts. Zimmermann will take the rotation spot of Keegan Akin, who is done for the year with a left adductor strain. Zimmermann could make two starts next week if the Orioles stick with a five-man rotation.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Rehab moved to Triple-A

    Zimmermann's (ankle) rehab assignment was transferred to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Steve Melewski of reports.

    The left-hander began his rehab stint with a start at Double-A Bowie on Saturday. He allowed three runs on five hits across 2.1 innings and will now make his next appearance with Norfolk, presumably later this week. If it ends up being his last outing in the minors, Zimmermann could be activated for the final week of the season, quite possibly to serve as a long reliever.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Rehab outing scheduled

    Zimmermann (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Zimmermann hasn't pitched in a major-league game since mid-June because of biceps tendinitis and a severe ankle sprain. The club said last week that the southpaw still has a chance of returning to log big-league innings this season, and him beginning a rehab assignment over the weekend is a key step toward that becoming a reality. It's unclear how many outings Zimmermann is expected to need in the minors, but he could have a chance to return to the major-league roster by late September assuming he builds up to work as a reliever.
