Jordan Zimmermann lit up by Twins

Jordan Zimmermann gave up seven runs on eight hits in just 3 1/3 innings to the Twins on Saturday. He walked one and recorded one strikeout while giving up two home runs in the Tigers eventual 12-11 win.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmermann's inconsistent season continues as he failed to reach five innings pitched in his fifth start this season. The seven runs allowed matched his worst outing of the season back on May 28 against the White Sox and raises his ERA up to 5.62 on the season. Zimmermann is only worth fantasy consideration as a streaming option in deep leagues when he has a favorable matchup against a team outside of his division.

Jordan Zimmermann gets loss in quality start

Jordan Zimmermann (7-9) took the loss on Monday with the Tigers falling to the Pirates 3-0. Zimmermann had a solid effort throwing seven innings while allowing three runs on five hits. He tallied just two strikeouts while giving up three walks and a home run in the 106-pitch effort.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmermann has strung together three straight quality starts and has a solid 3.45 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break. After a woeful start to the season, Zimmermann has been serviceable since the start of June with a 4.33 ERA in his last 12 starts. However, with a low strikeout rate and average ERA he is only worth fantasy consideration as a streaming option when the matchup is right.

Jordan Zimmermann blanks Yankees for seventh win

Jordan Zimmermann (7-8) tossed seven shutout innings against the Yankees on Wednesday in a 2-0 victory. He scattered six hits without walking a batter and registering six strikeouts for his seventh win of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Wednesday's outing was the first start this season where Zimmermann has not allowed a run and it came against one of the best offenses in baseball. Zimmermann has a 3.33 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP in four starts since the All-Star break. He's not going to strikeout a lot of hitters and is best left for deep mixed leagues as a streaming option. Zimmermann's next scheduled start is next Monday in Pittsburgh.

Jordan Zimmermann records seven strikeouts in win

Jordan Zimmermann (6-7) tossed 6 2/3 innings allowing just one run on seven hits with no walks and seven strikeouts. The win was his sixth of the season during a 10-2 victory over the Rangers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmermann has turned his season around over the last couple of months. He had a 6.47 ERA through his first 10 starts of the season but has responded with a serviceable 4.50 ERA over his next eight starts. He is still not worth fantasy consideration in standard leagues but could be used as a streaming option in deep mixed leagues when he has a favorable matchup or two-start week.

Jordan Zimmermann rocked in loss

Jordan Zimmermann was lit up to the tune of five runs on eight hits over just three innings in Friday's loss to Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmermann was working through the first couple of innings but the third really did him in, surrendering five hits and all five runs in the frame. The meltdown continues for him as this is now the third bad start in a row, shooting his ERA into a dangerous stratosphere at 5.87 with a 1.52 WHIP. Toss in that he's only racked up 67 strikeouts in 95 innings and it's increasingly difficult to justify rostering him. Perhaps the break helps him figure things out.
