Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann struggles Friday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:24:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (9-4) allowed seven runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Cleveland Indians Friday, June 24, with no walks and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: After a strong start to 2016, Zimmermann has allowed at least six runs in four of his last seven outings and has only made it past the sixth inning twice in the last month. He should be viewed as a somewhat risky play for his next start versus the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, July 1.

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 17:17:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann allowed one run on four hits while striking out five over eight innings in a no-decision against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann bounced back after a couple of rough outings, and while he has been a little up and down recently, he should remain a solid starting option in all formats.

White Sox | Todd Frazier out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:01:41 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 14, against the Detroit Tigers. SS Tyler Saladino is starting at third base and hitting ninth against Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier has no hits in his last 10 at-bats and is hitting .107 in the last week, so this is merely a night off to give him a break. Saladino is also a light hitter and carries little fantasy value.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann struggles in start

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:39:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann allowed seven runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, June 8, to suffer his third loss of the season. He struck out three batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks and has allowed at least seven runs in two of his last four starts. He is scheduled to face the Chicago White Sox in his next start and should still be an attractive fantasy option despite his recent play.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann throws bullpen session

Mon, 30 May 2016 06:14:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (groin) threw a bullpen session Sunday, May 29, and said he felt good during the session. He is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann has avoided the disabled list for now, but it is not known when his next start will be. He could start in the near future if his next bullpen session goes well. He has seven wins and a 2.52 ERA so far this season and should be used in all fantasy leagues when he is healthy.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann throws from flat ground

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:05:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (groin) threw from flat ground on the field Friday, May 27, and he will throw a bullpen session Sunday, May 29, before the organization will determine if a stint on the disabled list is required.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann is 7-2 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over nine starts, but like it has been for most of his career, he isn't striking out many batters with just 40 punchouts through 60 2/3 innings. If he avoids the DL, you shouldn't fret starting him in yearly leagues, but he is probably a little too risky for daily contests. Check back for the official word on what's next for Zimmermann.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann to throw Friday

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:07:14 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (groin) plans to try some long toss Friday, May 27, and he could throw off a mound Sunday, May 29. After that, the Tigers will decide to either put him on the disabled list or start him against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann has been one of the better free-agent pitching acquisitions from last offseason. He's 7-2 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in nine starts. A lack of strikeouts (5.9 K/9) has been the knock on him, though, and regression could be in store as the summer months approach. However, if he avoids the DL and starts against the Angels, he'd be a fine play everywhere.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann has mild strain

Mon, 23 May 2016 16:45:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann (groin) was diagnosed with a Grade 1 groin strain, which is the mildest possible strain. He could avoid the disabled list but has been ruled out for his next start scheduled for Friday, May 27. Manager Brad Ausmus has been optimistic about Zimmermann's prognosis.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann has been a great free-agent acquisition for the Tigers with a 7-2 record and 2.52 ERA in nine starts. However, Zimmermann could be in line for some regression and is striking out only 5.9 hitters per nine innings, limiting his fantasy upside. Be careful running him out for his next start after he's skipped this Friday.
