Jordan Zimmermann dominated the Giants' lineup except for a solo homer by Brandon Crawford (on a 3-0) count. In seven innings of work, the righty allowed three hits, striking out eight and walking one (100 pitches) for a Game Score of 74.

Fantasy Impact: Although the homer broke his scoreless streak, Zimmermann (7-5, ERA 3.04) has been outstanding in his last three starts. In 22 2/3 innings he's allowed one run, struck out 17 and walked one with hitters batting .183 against him.

Jordan Zimmermann was happy with his performance ("only two mistakes") as he allowed three runs on eight hits (two homers), striking out eight while walking one. The Nats' offense was shut out by the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: This season Zimmermann (5-5, ERA 3.75) has been markedly better at home than on the road.

In his second consecutive below par outing, Jordan Zimmermann couldn't get out of the fourth inning, with a line of 3.1 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 1 BB, 4 Ks (88 pitches). He was betrayed by his defense (leading to a two-run, 31-pitch first inning) but also had plenty of hard contact and line drives.

Fantasy Impact: Coming after a run of nine quality starts, these two outings were not typical. Zimmermann did not seem injured so it's difficult to say if this "mini-slump" will continue.

Jordan Zimmermann allowed four runs on 10 hits and two walks in only five innings of work (Game Score 32). He was unable to retire several hitters after getting two strikes..

Fantasy Impact: Zimmermann (5-3, ERA 3.18) pitched seven innings of one-run ball against the Cubs less than two weeks ago, so perhaps they "figured him out." He's been solid this season, with 9 of 12 Quality Starts.

Jordan Zimmermann allowed two earned runs on six hits, striking out four and walking none in six innings.

Fantasy Impact: Zimmermann (1-2) was sharp and efficient (except in the fifth inning), but left after only 79 pitches looking fatigued in the humidity.

Jordan Zimmerman was not at his best, uncharacteristically walking four batters, two of whom stole second and eventually scored. He was also the victim of two misplays by shortstop Ian Desmond which led to two of his four runs being unearned.

Fantasy Impact: Zimmermann's performance was much improved over the disaster in Boston, but his control and velocity were off and he didn't dominate. Wait and see if this is just a rough patch or the beginning of a downward trend.

In 2 1/3 innings, Jordan Zimmermann hit two batters, walked one, struck out none, and allowed eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits. Granted, several of the "hits" were mental errors by fielders, but Zimmermann's velocity was down and his control terrible.

Fantasy Impact: Even the steadiest pitchers have one or two of these games a year (the last time Zimmermann gave up five or more earned runs was May 12, 2014). I wouldn't panic, but it bears watching.

Although he didn't have his best stuff, Jordan Zimmermann worked out of jams to throw six innings, allowing only one run on five hits. He struck out four and walked none for a Game Score of 62.

In his final tune-up before the regular season, Jordan Zimmermann allowed eight runs on nine hits--including a monster home run by Giancarlo Stanton--walking none and striking out four (80 pitches, 54 strikes).

Fantasy Impact: Meaningless game. Zimmermann got his work in and didn't get hurt. If you planned to draft Zimmermann, keep to your plan. He is expected to start April 8 against the Mets.

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.
