Fantasy Impact: Zimmermann is poised to have the best season of his career, as he looks to earn top dollar on the free agent market next season. This won't affect his fantasy value, so continue to draft him early with confidence.

Since the Nats won't meet the Tigers in the regular season, Jordan Zimmermann mixed up his pitches as he faced ten batters, striking out four and walking none while allowing 2 hits and one run. In a meaningful game, Bryce Harper might have laid out to prevent the wind-blown triple.That he didn't augurs well for Harper's resolve to stay healthy by playing smarter.

Fantasy Impact: Looking every bit like the hurler whose last regular season outing was a no-hitter, Zimmermann appears to be on track for a dominant 2015.
