Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Rehab outing scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Has chance to return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles have not ruled out the possibility of Zimmermann (ankle) returning before the end of the season, Roch Kubatko of reports.

Zimmermann was initially sidelined with biceps tendinitis in mid-June, and just when he was on the brink of being reinstated in mid-August, he suffered a severe ankle sprain. The Orioles have already alluded to the possibility of his season being over, but Friday's update indicates the club is still holding out hope that the southpaw can return to log innings in some form during the season's final weeks. However, until he resumes mound work, the 27-year-old will remain without a concrete timeline.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Could miss remainder of 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann is dealing with a severe right ankle sprain and could miss the rest of the season, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Zimmermann was slated to return to the starting rotation last weekend, but he sprained his ankle while exercising. The southpaw had spent two months recovering from biceps tendinitis, and he'll now be sidelined indefinitely due to his ankle injury.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (biceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday with a sprained right ankle.

The left-hander has been sidelined the past two months by biceps tendinitis but was poised to rejoin Baltimore's rotation Sunday, but the ankle sprain will extend his absence. Zimmermann has already been out 60-plus days and can be activated from the IL at any point, though it's unclear how much longer he's expected to be sidelined after suffering the sprained ankle.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Return delayed by ankle setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (biceps) won't return Sunday as previously expected after spraining his ankle while exercising, Roch Kubatko of reports.

Biceps tendinitis has sidelined Zimmermann for more than two months. He was on the verge of a return before suffering the setback in a training-room accident. Exactly how serious of a setback the sprain is remains to be seen. Keegan Akin will get the nod Sunday against Boston.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Expected to make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (biceps) is expected to be reinstated from the 10-day injured list in time to make his next turn through the rotation, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Zimmermann made his third rehab start at Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday and allowed two walks in five hitless innings. The right-hander has been on the injured list with biceps tendinitis since mid-July, but he tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Boston on Sunday.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Strong in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (biceps) allowed just two walks over five hitless innings, striking out one and earning the win over Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

Zimmermann was literally unhittable in his third rehab start. He has allowed just two runs (one earned) on five hits and eight walks across 11 innings in his three rehab starts. It's possible the southpaw could be back with Baltimore as early as Sunday versus Boston if he stays on regular rest.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Ready for second rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (biceps) is scheduled to make the second start of his rehab assignment Thursday at Triple-A Norfolk, Steve Melewski of reports.

After being placed on the 10-day injured list June 18 with left biceps tendinitis, Zimmermann was cleared to begin his rehab assignment at High-A Aberdeen last weekend. He tossed three innings in that start, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks while striking out four. Zimmermann tossed 55 pitches in that outing, and if he can push into the 70-to-80 range Thursday, he could slot back into the Baltimore rotation for his next start.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Moving rehab to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (biceps) is moving his rehab assignment to High-A Aberdeen on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of 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.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Conducting rehab in FCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Could return in August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (biceps) could return in early-to-mid-August, Roch Kubatko of 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.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Rehab pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann's (biceps) rehab has been pushed back another week or two, Rich Dubroff of 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.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Out two or three more weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

June 18, 2021 02:56 PM
Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Out with biceps tendinitis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with left biceps tendinitis. The move is retroactive to June 15.

The left-hander was scheduled to start Friday's game versus the Blue Jays but now finds himself sidelined with a biceps injury. It's a tough break for Zimmermann, who pitched well over his past four starts with a 3.43 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 23:8 K:BB across 21 innings. It's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined. Tom Eshelman had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk and will start in his place for the Orioles.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Takes loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann allowed three runs on six hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 5.2 innings, taking the loss versus Tampa Bay on Sunday.

The southpaw was solid but not spectacular, throwing just 56 of his 95 pitches for strikes. Zimmermann allowed a decisive two-RBI single to Taylor Walls in the fourth inning, and Baltimore's offense didn't get him off the hook. For the season, Zimmermann has a 4.83 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 53:20 K:BB across 59.2 innings. He projects to make his next start versus Toronto during next weekend's series.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Picks up second straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (4-3) recorded the win Tuesday against the Mets after allowing two runs on two hits with seven strikeouts and two walks across five innings.

The 26-year-old wasn't overly efficient as he needed 90 pitches to get through five frames, but he's now given up five runs with a 20:5 K:BB over 15.1 innings across his past three starts. Zimmerman tentatively lines up to make his next turn through the rotation Sunday at Tampa Bay.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Notches third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann (3-3) earned the win Tuesday versus the Twins after allowing two runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and two walks over 5.1 innings.

The 26-year-old set a season high with the seven strikeouts and has given up three runs across 10.1 innings with a 13:3 K:BB in his past two starts. Zimmermann has a 4.96 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 43:15 K:BB over 49 innings (10 starts) in 2021.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann allowed a run on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts in five innings versus the White Sox on Thursday. He did not factor in the decision.

The southpaw left with the game tied 1-1 after a strong pitching duel with White Sox starter Dylan Cease. Zimmermann has given up one run in two of his last three outings, although a five-spot versus Washington came in between the two better efforts. The 26-year-old has a 5.15 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 36:13 K:BB across 43.2 innings. He lines up to face Minnesota next week.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Lasts three innings Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmermann allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts over three innings versus Washington on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.

Zimmermann took a turn as the fifth starter and got through the order with relative ease the first time. The second turn didn't go as well for the southpaw, who allowed a grand slam to Josh Harrison in the third inning. Zimmermann has logged a 5.59 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB across 38.2 innings. He's started seven of his eight appearances, but the 26-year-old may not be a long-term solution for Baltimore's lack of starting pitching depth this season.

Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Stepping in as fifth starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Zimmermann will start Saturday's game against the Nationals, Steve Melewski of reports.

The rookie will re-enter the rotation as a replacement for long reliever Adam Plutko, who faltered in a spot start last weekend against the Yankees. After Plutko was pounded for four runs before exiting after one inning, Zimmermann excelled in mop-up duty, limiting the Bronx Bombers to one run on two hits and one walk while striking out six over 5.2 frames. The strong outing in relief was enough to earn Zimmermann another look in a starting role, but fantasy managers should temper expectations for the lefty. In his first six outings as a starter before being demoted to the minors, Zimmermann posted a 5.40 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 6.6 K/9 across 30 innings.
