Jordan Zimmermann allows five runs, comes away with win

Jordan Zimmermann (2-1) pitched six innings on Tuesday against Seattle, allowing five runs on 11 hits. He struck out one without issuing a walk while coming away with the win.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmermann didn't pitch particularly well in this one, as he allowed three homers and only struck out one. He was able to secure the win because the Tigers gave him 16 runs of support through five innings (including nine runs in the fifth inning alone). J-Zim will likely face the White Sox on Sunday but should be benched in all but the deepest of formats.

Jordan Zimmermann inefficient, ineffective against Twins

Jordan Zimmermann labored through 4.2 IP on Thursday against the Twins, allowing five ER on four hits, five walks, and three strikeouts. He threw 99 pitches with 57 going for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

After a fairly impressive debut against the Red Sox, J-Zim really stunk it up on Thursday. Like last season, it seems like he'll be inconsistent and too risky to own in standard leagues unless he strings together several good starts. His next start figures to come against the Rays on Wednesday.

Jordan Zimmermann wins season debut

Jordan Zimmermann beat the Red Sox on Saturday, tossing six innings of one-run ball. He allowed four hits and one walk while striking out three. He threw 92 pitches with 66 of them going for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

After a less than inspiring Spring, Zimmermann looked good in his season debut. J-Zim lucked out in that Boston had Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts, and Hanley Ramirez out of the lineup, but he pitched well regardless. Zimmermann was too inconsistent in 2016 to be trusted, but if he strings a few good starts together, he may be worth a speculative add.

Jordan Zimmermann's start pushed back to Saturday

Jordan Zimmermann, originally tabbed to pitch on Wednesday, will now start on Saturday following the postponement of today's game.

Fantasy Impact

Matt Boyd, Saturday's original starter, will now pitch on Thursday. This is a downgrade for J-Zim, as he goes from facing the White Sox to facing the Red Sox, one of the best offenses in the American League. Zimmermann should only be started in deep AL-only leagues at this point.

Jordan Zimmermann yanked in first inning against Braves

Jordan Zimmermann lasted just 0.2 IP in his spring start on Wednesday against Atlanta, allowing four R on four H. He struck out one.

Fantasy Impact

Two of the runs came on a home run by Braves' catcher Kurt Suzuki. Players like Zimmermann, coming off of rough 2016 seasons, need to perform well in spring to earn back the trust of fantasy owners. So far, he has not. This runs his spring ERA up to 15.00. At this point, you shouldn't be considering him for your fantasy team unless he makes some huge strides early in the season.
