|Jordan Zimmermann stays sharp in losing effort|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(12:15 am ET) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann stayed sharp as he struck out six but suffered his second loss of the season Saturday night against the Padres.
Zimmermann (7-2), who made his ninth start of the season, allowed a solo home run to Yonder Alonso in the second. He gave up a run-scoring single to Everth Cabrera that broke a tied game in the eighth. The right-hander was charged with two runs -- one earned -- and seven hits over eight innings of work in a 2-1 defeat.
Zimmermann has allowed one earned run or less in four of his last five starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Friday at home against the Phillies. He went 1-2 with a 3.71 ERA in three starts against Philadelphia last season.

(5/14/13) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann turned in another solid performance Monday night against the Dodgers. Zimmermann, who made his eighth start, allowed just two runs on nine hits over 7 2/3 innings in a 6-2 win, including an RBI groundout off the bat of Skip Schumaker.
The only other run he surrendered came on an RBI single off the bat of Matt Kemp in the bottom of the eighth, which chased the right-hander from the game. He was pulled after throwing 101 pitches, 67 for strikes, and finished with five strikeouts and no walks.
Zimmermann (7-1), who has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his eight outings, has won his last four starts and has posted a 0.95 ERA with 24 strikeouts and five walks over that span (31 2/3 innings).
|Report: Jordan Zimmermann not talking turkey|
|by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com|
(5/13/13) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann told ESPN.com on Monday that he has not engaged in any contract extension talks with the club. Zimmermann, who remains arbitration-eligible for the next two seasons, has continued his star development this year and posted a 1.59 ERA with two complete games among his seven starts.
"As far as I know, there's nothing going on," he said about the rumors. The 26-year-old is slated to take the hill Monday night on the road against the Dodgers.
|Jordan Zimmermann first NL pitcher with six wins|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/8/13) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, who posted two scoreless outings in his previous two starts, became the first National League pitcher to six wins by holding the Tigers to one earned run on seven hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out seven.
Zimmermann has allowed just nine earned runs in seven starts this season en route to a 6-1 record and 1.59 ERA. His next start will come in Los Angeles against the Dodgers Monday.
|Jordan Zimmermann moved back to Wednesday|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/7/13) Tuesday's rainout against the Tigers forced the Nationals to push back starters Jordan Zimmermann and Dan Haren each a day. Zimmermann, who was slated to throw Tuesday, will start Wednesday and Haren will start Thursday's rescheduled game.
Zimmermann will now go a week between starts. He is 5-6 with a 3.59 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 16 career starts when he's had at least six days' rest. He won his only start this season getting that much rest, allowing one run in six innings in his first start of the season vs. Miami.
|At first glance, Jordan Zimmermann had an outstanding 2012 with the Nationals, finishing with a 12-8 record, 2.94 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and a 75 percent quality start rate. However, Zimmermann's season could have been so much more if not for a late-season slide. Only four of his last nine outings were quality starts and Zimmermann didn't pitch as many as seven innings in any of them. His ERA over that stretch was 4.65, as he was frequently hammered, as reflected by high flyball and line drive rates. Zimmermann's curveball had lost some of its effectiveness, as PitchFX data reveals it did not have as much horizontal movement over his final nine starts. If mechanical issues are to blame, and if Zimmermann can address them, he could be among the top 30 starting pitchers in Fantasy. However, there is a risk that he could perform more like a late-rounder whom you might not want to start every week. (Updated 12/11/12)|
