SP - MIL - MiLB
The Brewers have released right-handed pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, though they hope to bring him back on a minor-league deal.
The 34-year-old was in camp as a non-roster invite and didn't make the Opening Day list. He owns a 4.06 ERA over 275 starts and two relief appearances, though he was tagged with four runs and just one strikeout over six innings of work this spring.
Jordan Zimmermann has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Zimmermann pitched just five innings last year in another injury-prone season, and his 6.91 ERA over 112 innings in 2019 shows that there may not be much left in the tank. He is irrelevant for fantasy purposes, even if he were to land a spot in the rotation.
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.
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 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.
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, 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.
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.
