Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Likely to serve as third starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann will likely be Detroit's No. 3 starter when the regular season is able to begin, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

McCosky projects Zimmermann to slot in behind Matthew Boyd and Spencer Turnbull, and ahead of Ivan Nova and Daniel Norris. Zimmermann had a horrific 2019 campaign, posting a 6.91 ERA in 23 starts, and his time in Detroit could come to an end whenever highly touted pitching prospects such as Casey Mize and Matt Manning are ready for the majors.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Looks sharp Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann tossed four shutout innings in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals. He allowed one hit and two walks.

Zimmermann didn't record any strikeouts, but he was still able to stymie his former team. Pitching to contact can often lead to much worse outings, as evidenced by the veteran's career-worst 6.91 ERA last season to go with a 6.6 K/9. Zimmermann is nothing more than a staff filler at this point, and his inability to consistently miss bats makes him a very risky fantasy option.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Struggles Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann was tagged for four earned runs on five hits across 2.2 innings in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays. He struck out three.

Zimmermann looked better in his spring debut Saturday, when he tossed two scoreless innings against the Phillies. The veteran had another rough go of it last season, posting a 6.91 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 112 innings, and he's simply not a reliable fantasy option at this point in his career.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Leads off Grapefruit League slate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann will start Saturday in the Tigers' Grapefruit League opener versus the Phillies, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann will presumably head into his age-34 season with his spot in the rotation assured, but that's largely due to his pricey contract -- he's owed $50 million over the next two years -- rather than anything he's done over the first three seasons of his deal. The righty turned in career-worst marks in both ERA (6.91) and K-BB% (11.3%) while also seeing his average fastball velocity drop to a new low in 2019, leaving little reason to forecast a major bounceback in 2020. Detroit might be ready to write Zimmermann off as a sunk cost once prized prospects Matt Manning, Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal are deemed ready for the big-league rotation.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Short outing against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (1-13) allowed six runs (four earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out two across 4.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Twins.

Zimmermann held the Twins to two runs through four innings but imploded -- with the help of poor defense behind him -- in the fifth frame. Trouble began as the leadoff batter reached on an error, though Zimmermann compounded the mistake by allowing a hit to three of the next four batters he faced. Though he's shown flashes of usefulness throughout the season, Zimmermann has now allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts while never surpassing five innings pitched. For the season, he owns an ugly 6.91 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 112 innings.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Crushed by ChiSox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (1-12) took the loss Friday as the Tigers were thumped 10-1 by the White Sox. He coughed up nine runs on 11 hits and a walk over 3.2 innings, though he did also struck out six.

The veteran right-hander gave up two runs in both the second and third innings before things went completely off the rails, and Eloy Jimenez's grand slam in the fourth chased Zimmermann from the game. He's now lost three straight starts and four straight decisions, with his only win of the year coming July 29, but Zimmermann will still head to the mound one more time in 2019 -- carrying a 6.85 ERA and 80:24 K:BB over 107.2 innings into Thursday's home start against the Twins.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Pushed back in schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Gardenhire said that Zimmermann will have his next scheduled start pushed back to Friday's game against the White Sox, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann will be returning to the mound on six days' rest after covering five innings in his last outing Sept. 13 versus the Orioles. Heading into the week, the veteran was expected to take the hill Thursday in Cleveland, but Gardenhire elected to move the piggyback tandem of Daniel Norris and Drew VerHagen ahead of Zimmermann in the rotation order.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Saddled with 11th loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (1-11) took the loss after giving up four runs on eight hits while striking out three over five innings Friday against the Orioles.

Zimmermann surrendered one run in the first inning followed by three runs in the fifth, and he'd depart with a 4-0 deficit. The 33-year-old has been saddled with back-to-back losses, allowing 10 runs over his last two outings (10 innings). He owns a 6.32 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with a 74:23 K:BB over 104 frames in 2019.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Ineffective in 10th loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (1-10) allowed six runs over five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Athletics. He struck out two and gave up seven hits and a walk.

Zimmermann had been pitching better lately, with no more than two earned runs allowed in any of his previous four starts, but he struggled in Oakland. The veteran righty was tagged for two home runs, and the two strikeouts were his fewest in an outing since July 29. Zimmermann will take a dreadful 6.27 ERA into his next scheduled appearance Friday against the Orioles.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Pitches well again in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann allowed two runs across six innings but did not factor into the decision in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Twins. He gave up nine hits with no walks, while striking out three.

Zimmermann's 6.03 season ERA is unsightly, though the veteran righty has looked a lot better since coming off the injured list on Aug. 17. Across his past four starts, Zimmermann has allowed just six earned runs in 22 innings with 17 strikeouts and only one walk. However, Detroit's offense has provided little support, so the 33-year-old has no wins to show for his improved performance. Zimmermann will look to keep stringing together solid outings his next time out Saturday in Oakland.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Looks sharp again in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann allowed just two runs over six innings but did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Cleveland. He gave up five hits and no walks, while striking out five.

Zimmermann has a rough 6.24 ERA this season, but he's been sharp in three outings since returning from the injured list on Aug. 17. During the stretch, the veteran righty has a 2.25 ERA with 14 strikeouts across 16 innings, though he has no wins to show for it. Zimmermann will look to keep rolling in a tough matchup against the powerful Twins lineup Monday.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Solid despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (1-9) was charged with the loss against the Astros on Thursday, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out four over five innings.

The right-hander may have taken the loss, but he turned in a solid performance against a volatile Astros lineup at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The bulk of Zimmermann's damage came in the fourth inning after he gave up a double to Michael Brantley and a two-run home run to Alex Bregman. The 33-year-old will look to continue improving upon a disappointing 6.48 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on Wednesday against Cleveland.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Solid but saddled with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (1-9) allowed two runs on just three hits and a walk across five innings but took the loss Thursday against the Astros. He struck out four.

Zimmermann pitched pretty well against a tough Houston lineup at Minute Maid Park, but Gerrit Cole was on the hill for the Astros and completely shut down Detroit. Zimmermann's ERA is sitting at an unsightly 6.48 for the season, though he's pitched well in two starts since coming off the injured list, yielding just two runs on four hits across 10 innings. The veteran righty will look to build on these positive results his next time out Wednesday versus Cleveland.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Yields one hit in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman allowed one hit while throwing five scoreless frames with no walks and five strikeouts during a no-decision against the Rays on Saturday.

The right-hander missed his last couple outings with a right cervical spasm, but with his sparkling performance Saturday, there doesn't seem to be any lingering effects. It's too bad the Tigers limited him to 63 pitches because he was on his way to a special night. Instead, he was just a footnote in an extra-innings 1-0 loss. He could have used the win, as Zimmerman, who will pitch in Houston on Thursday, is 1-8 with a 6.66 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 57 strikeouts in 77 innings this season.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Cleared to rejoin rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (neck) has been confirmed as the Tigers' starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Rays, Dawn Klemish of MLB.com reports.

The Tigers will officially reinstate Zimmermann from the 10-day injured list in the hours leading up to the 6:10 p.m. EDT first pitch. Zimmermann was sidelined for just over the minimum amount of time with a right cervical spasm, for which he required a nerve block injection. Manager Ron Gardenhire indicated that Zimmermann felt good coming out of his bullpen session a couple of days ago, so the right-hander shouldn't face any major restrictions while slotting back into the Detroit rotation.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Eyeing Saturday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers are expected to activate Zimmermann (neck) from the 10-day injured list to start Saturday's game against the Rays, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann was placed on the IL on Aug. 5 after experiencing neck spasms, but his ability to resume throwing just a few days later suggests the injury was never viewed as a major concern. Manager Ron Gardenhire said earlier this week that Zimmermann wouldn't necessarily require a rehab assignment prior to being reinstated, so the right-hander could get clearance for the weekend if he completes a side session or live batting-practice session Thursday without incident. Drew VerHagen would likely surrender his spot in the rotation if Zimmermann gets the green light to start this weekend.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Could be activated soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (neck) may bypass a rehab assignment and be activated soon, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Manager Ron Gardenhire said that Zimmermann would be activated to make his next major-league start sometime in the near future. The 33-year-old was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 5 and began throwing from flat ground Saturday. He appears to be making a quick recovery, and it's encouraging that he won't need any rehab appearances before returning to the Tigers.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Throws from flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (neck) threw on flat ground from over 100 feet Saturday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann was placed on the injured list Monday, with this marking his first notable activity since. He was expected to only miss the minimum 10 days, meaning he could be activated as soon as next Thursday.

August 5, 2019 06:12 PM
Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Out with neck spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann was placed on the 10-day injured list with a neck spasm Monday.

Zimmermann has been struggling lately, recording a 10.13 ERA and a 1.95 WHIP over his last six starts. It's unclear if the neck issue has been bothering him for a while. He's expected to spend the minimum 10 days on the injured list and return after missing just a single start, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Spencer Turnbull (back) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Fans seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann yielded four runs on six hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out seven batters while not factoring into the decision during the loss to Texas.

It was the first time Zimmermann made it through six full innings since June 30 and actually lowered his ERA a bit from 7.23 to 7.13. After allowing a pair of runs in the first innings, the 33-year-old righty kept the Rangers fairly quiet until a two-run shot from Danny Santana in the fifth. Zimmerman will look for his second win of the year in a home outing against the Royals on Thursday.
