Latest Update Jordan Zimmerman loses win after bullpenm blows lead Sun Oct, 05, 12:23 AM
Is extremely polished and poised on the mound. Throws strikes and generates good movement on his pitches. Can also be dominant when he's on his game.
Flaws: : Needs to do a better job of keeping the ball down in the strike zone, or risk surrendering too many long balls. Injuries have been an issue with him.
An absolutely brilliant game from Zimmerman here. Absolutely brilliant. The Nationals lost on a bad call by manager Matt Williams to make the pitching change even after Zimmermann, who threw a no-hitter during the regular season finale, had only thrown 100 pitches, had retired 20-straight before walking Joe Panik, and was one out away from his second consecutive complete game. Zimmermann doesn't get saddled with the loss here, but he probably feels that way after being yanked from the game and having to sit there for nine more innings only to watch his team lose.Analyst: Howard Bender
2014 was Zimmermann's best season by far, with career-bests in strikeout rate, walk rate, ERA, FIP and xFIP. At 28 years old, there is no reason to think he cannot repeat this performance next season.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Zimmermann is now 13-5 with a 2.78 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through 31 starts this season as he continues to put together another solid season in the Nation's Capital. After a rather unlucky start to the year, ZImmermann has since gone 7-0 in the second half of the season through 12 starts, which makes him a must-start when he takes on the Marlins on Friday in what will be his final regular season start.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Zimmerman did what good pitchers should do: he dominated a bad lineup.Analyst: Steve Pimental
