Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann aces AL test in April

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:54:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann went 5-0 with a 0.55 ERA and 23 strikeouts through 33 innings in April.

Fantasy Tip: Moving to the American League was expected to hurt Zimmermann's fantasy value, especially after his negative regression in 2015 (3.66 ERA and 3.75 FIP). It hasn't been the case, though, and besides the underwhelming strikeout numbers (6.3 K/9), Zimmermann has been an excellent fantasy option thus far. View him as a solid mid-rotation arm for your fantasy roster going forward.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann outstanding in debut

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 13:58:46 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann gave up only two hits and three walks in seven shutout innings to win his debut for the Tigers against the New York Yankees Friday, April 8. Zimmermann also struck out three and threw 63 of his 99 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann is by no means a fantasy ace, as he doesn't strike out enough hitters. But he's one of the more consistent starters in the majors and features pinpoint control. With another strong offensive lineup behind him, he'll deliver plenty of wins and an excellent WHIP for your fantasy staff.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann pitches minors games

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 13:22:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann allowed two runs through six innings during a minor league start Monday, March 28.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmermann has been an excellent innings eater over the past four years and has made at least 32 starts in each season with a 3.13 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and a 7.3 K/9. However, there is cause for concern with a relocation to the American League. Zimmermann is a middle-round target with an excellent track record, but it is likely best to expect negative regression from the numbers he posted in the National League the past four years. Don't count on Zimmermann to be more than a mid-rotation arm for your virtual club.

Tigers | Detroit trio to start regular season

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 23:06:45 -0700

Detroit Tigers SPs Justin Verlander, Mike Pelfrey and Jordan Zimmermann will start the first three games of the regular season, with SP Anibal Sanchez possibly working in the back end of the rotation to start.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander has had a strong spring and is the best bet of the Detroit pitchers for fantasy purposes, while Zimmermann can be a force in his first foray into the AL if he can stay healthy. Pelfrey is more of an AL-only fantasy option, although it will be interesting to see how he performs in a hitter's home park with a solid offense providing run support.

Tigers | Jordan Zimmermann beat up Thursday

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 15:21:01 -0800

Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann allowed five hits and four runs while walking one and striking out three in 3 2/3 innings in his Grapefruit League start Thursday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman has a nice mix of control and dominance, but the move to the American League could have owners a little leery. However, he's been pretty darn consistent in his career, so choosing him as your second fantasy starter is just fine.
