Zimmermann was optioned to the Orioles' alternate training site Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Zimmermann will head to the minors after failing to work five innings for the third consecutive start. He surrendered 11 runs (10 earned) and walked five while fanning 11 across 13 innings during that stretch. Isaac Mattson was recalled in a corresponding move.
Zimmermann didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Athletics. He gave up four runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks while fanning four across 4.2 innings.
Zimmermann couldn't even get out of the fifth inning, though that has been the case in each of his last three starts. The left-hander has allowed at least three earned runs in all but one of his outings to date, and it's safe to say things haven't gone as well as he would've hoped to begin the year. He owns a 5.40 ERA across 30 innings of work so far and will look for a better performance in his upcoming start, tentatively scheduled for next week at home against the Red Sox.
Zimmermann (1-3) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Yankees after giving up four runs on nine hits and a walk while fanning three across 3.2 innings. He also allowed two home runs.
Zimmermann gave up homers to Aaron Judge and Kyle Higashioka and couldn't even finish the fourth inning -- the Orioles were losing 4-0 when he departed the game. The left-hander has lost his last three starts and has allowed three or more earned runs in four of his first outings this season. He will try to bounce back in his next start, scheduled for Sunday on the road against the Athletics.
Zimmermann (1-2) took the loss Wednesday at Miami after giving up three runs on six hits with four strikeouts and two walks across 4.2 innings.
The 26-year-old started off with four scoreless frames Wednesday, but he was tagged for three runs during the fifth inning and was unable to complete the frame. It was Zimmerman's worst start of the season, and he now has a 4.57 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 15:7 K:BB over 21.2 innings. The left-hander will attempt to get back on track next time out against the Yankees early next week.
Zimmermann (1-1) gave up two runs on six hits and three walks while fanning two in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mariners. He was tagged with the loss.
Zimmermann started the season with back-to-back quality starts, but he was unable to continue that run here, leaving three outs shy of achieving that feat again. Zimmermann only allowed the Mariners to score via the long ball in this one, as both Dylan Moore and Mitch Haniger took him deep. That has been an issue for the 26-year-old left-hander so far, as he's given up four homers in 17 innings across three starts in 2021.
Zimmermann allowed three earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four across six innings Saturday against the Red Sox. He did not factor in the decision.
Zimmermann has posted back-to-back quality starts to begin the season. The rookie gave up two runs in the first before settling in. He finished the sixth inning after he gave up a solo home run to Rafael Devers. Zimmermann has a 4.50 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with nine strikeouts and two walks in 12 innings.
Zimmermann allowed three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five over six innings in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.
The lefty was dominant in his debut, with his lone mistakes being to J.D. Martinez on a solo shot in the fourth and RBI double in the sixth. The 26-year-old rookie was impressive given it was his second career start, throwing 54 of his 73 pitches for strikes and striking out five. Zimmermann is scheduled to pitch on Saturday against the Red Sox again.
Zimmerman will start the third game of the season against the Red Sox on April 4, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The 26-year-old entered spring training under consideration for starting and relief roles, and he'll open the season in the rotation. Zimmerman pitched well throughout camp with only one hit allowed and a 10:3 K:BB over nine scoreless innings during Grapefruit League action.
Zimmermann will get bulk innings in 2021 and could serve as a starter or reliever for the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Zimmermann made two appearances (one start) in 2020 and pitched at least three innings in both outings. He isn't guaranteed to make the Opening Day roster, but manager Brandon Hyde said Saturday that the team will continue to get bulk innings during spring training. Zimmermann could serve as a back-end starter to begin the season, but Hyde indicated that the Orioles will also consider him for a bullpen role.
Zimmermann allowed a run on two hits and a walk and struck out five over four relief innings in Wednesday's 9-1 loss to the Red Sox.
Zimmermann worked the final four innings of the game, with the only run against him coming on a wild pitch in the seventh inning. The 25-year-old has allowed six runs over seven innings in two appearances (one start) this year. It's unclear if he'll get another look in a long-relief role before the end of the season.
Zimmermann will be moved to the bullpen for the remainder of the regular season, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Zimmermann made his major-league debut as a starter Thursday when he settled for a no-decision. However, he'll shift to the bullpen for the remainder of the season as manager Brandon Hyde said he'll try to use him in situations where he can pitch for several innings.
Zimmermann did not factor into the decision during Thursday's loss to the Rays, surrendering five runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two across three innings.
It was a tough MLB debut for Zimmermann, who failed to make it past the third inning, throwing 32 of 53 pitches for strikes. Most of his damage came via the long ball, including a three-run home run by Willy Adames in the first inning and a solo blast by Hunter Renfroe in the third. The 25-year-old, who is not expected to remain in the rotation, posted a 4.89 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 33:18 K:BB across seven Triple-A starts in 2019.
Zimmermann is starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rays, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
The roster move won't be official until after the completion of the matinee, but the 25-year-old is penciled in as the starter for Game 2. Zimmermann made his way to Triple-A in 2019 and made seven starts with a 4.89 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 33:18 K:BB over 38.2 innings. According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, the young right-hander may not remain in the rotation after Thursday, but he'll still have a role with the big-league club for the closing stretch of the season.
Zimmermann joined the Orioles' player pool Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
The lefty will give the Orioles' pitching staff additional depth, but he's unlikely to be called upon to fill a major role. He struggled upon promotion to Triple-A Norfolk last season, posting a 4.89 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP while striking out just 18.9 percent of opposing batters over seven starts.
