Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann allowed four runs (three earned) and eight hits in five innings Wednesday, May 28. He has yielded at least four runs in each of his last four efforts and carries a 4.07 ERA with a 1.46 WHIP in 59 2/3 frames this year. Velocity is not a problem, but opposing hitters have a .307 batting average and a .369 clip on balls in play against him.
Fantasy Tip: Both of those numbers are well above his recent trends. Zimmermann is a buy-low candidate, but his reputation may keep his price high. Doesn't hurt to ask what he'd be worth.

Washington Nationals SPs Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann are being moved up in the rotation to face the Miami Marlins the next two days, which will allow them to start SP Tanner Roark against the Atlanta Braves Friday, April 11. "You certainly want your No. 1 going as many times during the course of a season as you can," manager Matt Williams said. "There's no set plan in that regard, because there are further off-days coming and we just don't know. His workload may get to the point where we've got to get him an extra day. But as of right now, it's on normal rest and we're going to keep it that way as much as possible."
