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

Zimmermann allowed seven runs on eight hits across four innings in a no-decision against the Royals Sunday. He struck out two and did not issue any walks.

Zimmermann was bailed out by his offense in a 12-8 Tigers win, but the veteran continued to pitch poorly and could have easily picked up his seventh loss of the season. Over his last two starts, Zimmermann has been blasted for 14 earned runs on 21 hits across 7.1 innings of work. He'll take an atrocious 7.01 ERA and 0-6 record into his next outing against the Blue Jays on Friday and can be safely avoided in most fantasy formats.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Pounded by Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (0-6) was charged with the loss Saturday against the Red Sox after surrendering seven runs on 13 hits over 3.1 innings. He had two strikeouts and zero walks.

Zimmermann managed to not serve up a home run but still allowed five extra-base hits in what amounts to his worst start of the season. The veteran right-hander heads into the All-Star break with an ugly 6.29 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 33:15 K:BB through 48.2 innings.

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

Zimmermann allowed one run on four hits and two walks over six innings Sunday, striking out four batters in a no-decision against Washington on Sunday.

It was Zimmermann's third quality start of the season and first since April 2. The lone run to cross the plate against him came from a Kurt Suzuki RBI single in the fourth inning. He lowered his season ERA to 5.36 with a subpar 31:15 K:BB with Sunday's effort. Zimmermann will take on Boston at home Friday.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Stays winless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (0-5) took the loss Tuesday as the Tigers fell 5-3 to the Rangers, giving up three runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two.

The veteran right-hander was a little more effective than he was last Wednesday in his return from the IL, throwing 58 of 84 pitches for strikes, but Zimmermann still wound up on the wrong end of the decision. He'll take a 5.95 ERA and 27:13 K:BB through 39.1 innings into his next start Sunday, at home against the Nationals.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Uneven return to mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk over four innings and took a no-decision Wednesday against the Pirates. He struck out four.

Zimmermann, who last pitched for the Tigers on April 25, was limited to just 75 pitches in his return. He threw 52 of them for strikes, but his offerings weren't overly effective, and the righty saw his season ERA climb to 6.03. Zimmermann now has a 5.30 ERA since coming to Detroit in 2016, so it wouldn't be wise to expect a ton of improvement. He's scheduled to take the mound again Tuesday against a tough Rangers lineup.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) was activated as expected ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Pirates.

Zimmermann had been dealing with a right UCL sprain since late April. He had a poor 5.93 ERA in six starts prior to landing on the injured list, allowing five runs in each of his last three outings, though it's possible those numbers were partly the byproduct of the injury. The 33-year-old only lasted 4.2 innings while allowing four runs in his final rehab appearance with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Expected to return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) is expected to be activated from the injured list Wednesday and start against the Pirates, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann completed his latest rehab outing with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, allowing four runs while fanning six over 4.2 innings of work. Detroit is evidently satisfied with his progress and feels he's ready to return to the starting rotation. Zimmermann has been on the injured list since April 26 with a right UCL sprain.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Yields two homers in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) worked 4.2 innings Thursday while making his second rehab start at Triple-A Toledo. He gave up four runs on five hits and no walks while striking out six.

After making his first rehab start at High-A Lakeland five days earlier, Zimmermann faced stiffer competition in his second turn while also upping his pitch count from 35 to 69. While he controlled his pitches well -- he pumped in 51 for strikes -- Zimmermann's command left something to be desired, as four of the five hits he allowed went for extra bases. Despite Zimmermann's so-so performance, the Tigers may have seen enough from the veteran to justify bringing him back into their banged-up rotation next week rather than having him make a third rehab start in the minors. The team should clarify its plans for Zimmermann's next step within a few days.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Rehab start set for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann will join the Mud Hens for what will be his second rehab outing since landing on the injured list at the end of April. In his first rehab start (with High-A Lakleland on Saturday), the veteran right-hander allowed two runs on three hits while striking out two in 2.2 innings. Zimmermann figures to ramp things up Thursday, after which a timetable for his return could come into focus.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Another rehab start on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Gardenhire said he expects Zimmermann (elbow) to make his second rehab start Thursday or Friday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Zimmermann joined High-A Lakeland over the weekend for his first competitive action since April 25, taking the hill for Saturday's rain-shortened outing. Even if the weather hadn't intervened, Zimmermann may not have stayed in the contest much longer after giving up two runs on three hits over 2.2 innings (35 pitches). Gardenhire noted that Zimmermann didn't feel comfortable with his mechanics, so the Tigers will likely need to see him bump up his pitch count in his next rehab outing while showing improved command before a potential return to the big-league rotation is entertained. In a best-case scenario, Zimmermann could be activated from the 10-day injured list as soon as next week.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lakeland on Saturday.

The right-hander has been on the 10-day injured list since April 26 and has encountered several setbacks throughout his rehab process. He had been expected to begin his assignment Wednesday, but he'll be back on the mound just a few days later than scheduled. Zimmermann amassed an ERA of 5.93 in six starts prior to his stint on the injured list, though some of those struggles could be linked to the injury.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Rehab start pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann's (elbow) rehab start with Triple-A Toledo has been pushed back due to left glute tightness, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Zimmermann, who has been on the shelf since the end of April with a UCL sprain in his right elbow, was originally scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with the Mud Hens on Wednesday, but that will have to wait after the veteran right-hander felt something in his glute. At this point, it's unclear how long this injury will set Zimmermann back. An updated timetable for his return should emerge once he's able to resume his rehab assignment.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Rehab assignment on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) will make a rehab start at High-A Lakeland on Wednesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Zimmermann completed a 40-pitch simulated game Friday, clearing the way for the start of a minor-league rehab stint. The 33-year-old will likely require an additional rehab start before potentially making his way back to the starting rotation.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Simulated game scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) is expected to pitch a simulated game Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann has been dealing with a sprained UCL since late April. He's behind his initial 3-to-4 week timeline and appears on track to return to action in mid-June.

May 16, 2019 04:24 PM
Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Return timeline pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Gardenhire said Thursday that Zimmermann is tending to a muscle strain in addition to his sprained right elbow and is "probably a month" away from returning from the 10-day injured list, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

When Zimmermann was shut down with a UCL sprain in late April, it was estimated that he would be sidelined for 3-to-4 weeks. Gardenhire's comments suggest Zimmermann's setback will result in the 32-year-old's recovery timeline being pushed back another four weeks, putting him in line for a mid-June return at the earliest. The Tigers were already lacking in quality rotation depth heading into 2019, and injuries to Zimmermann, Michael Fulmer (elbow), Matt Moore (knee) and Tyson Ross (elbow) have only compounded matters.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Still feeling discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) is still feeling discomfort when throwing, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Zimmermann doesn't appear to have suffered any setbacks, he's just not progressed as quickly as expected from the sprained UCL he suffered in late April. He had initially be tracking towards a return in late May but now appears to be behind that timeline.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) was cleared to play catch Sunday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Zimmermann was only able to complete some light tosses off flat ground in what marked his first activity since landing on the 10-day injured list last week with a UCL sprain in his right elbow. The Tigers haven't outlined a formal timeline for Zimmermann's return from the IL, but it's expected he'll be sidelined for a minimum of 3-to-4 weeks while working through the elbow issue. Ryan Carpenter is the leading candidate to receive a callup from Triple-A Toledo to enter the rotation when the Tigers first require a fifth starter during their May 11 doubleheader in Minnesota.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Shut down for one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (elbow) has been shut down from throwing for one week, and in a best-case scenario, he could return from the injured list in 3-to-4 weeks, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Zimmermann was moved to the 10-day injured list Friday, although he won't be ready to return to game action after the 10-day minimum. Another update on the right-hander's status should come when he resumes throwing.

April 27, 2019 01:12 PM
Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Suffers UCL sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a UCL sprain in his right elbow.

Zimmermann lasted only three innings during Thursday's start as he felt elbow discomfort, and further testing Friday didn't provide encouraging news. The veteran right-hander will be eligible to come off the injured list May 7, but he seems likely to face a longer absence.

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: Suffers through short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
