Bradley Zimmer went 1-3 with a solo home run to help propel the Blue Jays over the Astros on Friday.
Zimmer has seen increased playing time with Teoscar Hernandez's absence. The home run was Zimmer's first hit of the season and he has struck out seven of his 16 at-bats this season. The preseason fantasy breakout pick is off to a rough start, but hopefully, Friday's game can help propel him moving forward.
