Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann, who said he won't talk contract extension during the regular season, said it doesn't look good for him to reach a long-term deal with the team before now and opening day. It's believed that there haven't been substantive contract talks between the two sides to this point. Zimmermann is eligible for free agency this winter, and the team may have moved on after the signed SP Max Scherzer to a team-record $210 million deal this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is having a fine spring in what is shaping up to be a contract year for him. With one of baseball's best lineups behind him, Zimmermann is truly a fantasy ace and consistently worth considering at FantasyScore.
