Jordan Zimmermann goes three innings in 2020 debut

Detroit Tigers right-hander Jordan Zimmermann threw three scoreless innings in a 6-3 win over the Cardinals in the second game of a Thursday doubleheader. Zimmermann struck out two and walked one.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmermann was activated from the IL earlier in the day after dealing with a forearm injury for the first two months of the season. His days of being a fantasy option are long past.

Jordan Zimmermann (elbow) activated from the IL, will start Thursday

Jordan Zimmerman, who has been out all year with a forearm injury, has been activated from the injured list and will start Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmerman should help the Tigers eat some innings down the stretch but he's not a recommended streaming option against the Cardinals in his first game back.

Jordan Zimmermann (forearm) to throw live BP on Friday

Jordan Zimmermann, who has not pitched this season because of a forearm injury, will throw live BP on Friday. If he does not have any setbacks he could return next week when he is eligible.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmermann had a 6.91 ERA in 112 innings pitched last season. The Tigers have the second-worst starting pitcher ERA in baseball this season ahead of only the Red Sox. Zimmermann probably wouldn't get a chance to start on any other club. Fantasy owners in standard 12-team redraft leagues can leave him on the waiver wire.

Jordan Zimmerman (forearm) throws first bullpen since injury

Jordan Zimmerman (forearm) threw a bullpen session on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

It was Zimmerman's first bullpen since his forearm injury occurred. He's currently on the 45-day IL and it's unclear if he'll pitch again this season.

Jordan Zimmerman (forearm) placed on 45-day IL

The Tigers placed RHP Jordan Zimmeran on the 45-day injured list with a right forearm strain.

Fantasy Impact

This is the same issue that cost Zimmerman time in 2019. He was scratched from Friday's intrasquad start with forearm tightness, which has turned out to be a bigger issue. The 34-year-old is in the final year of a five-year, $110 million contract with the Tigers. It's unclear if he'll pitch at all this season.
