Nationals | Zimmermann named fifth starter

The Washington Nationals have named SP Jordan Zimmermann as their fifth starter, according to Chico Harlan of The Washington Post. He will start the season in the minors, because the team will use a four-man rotation for the first two weeks of the year, before being recalled Sunday, April 19. Zimmermann could be sent to Triple-A Syracuse to open the year, unless weather concerns prompt the Nationals to send him to Class A instead. He will throw a 40-pitch simulated game Tuesday, March 31.
