Jordan Zimmermann suffers loss for Nationals on Saturday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann dropped to 1-2 on the season after suffering a loss on Saturday. 

Zimmermann allowed four runs, but only two were earned, in six and a third innings. He walked four and allowed four hits, while striking out three.

"I was just trying to be too fine and ended up missing and falling behind," Zimmermann said to MASN Sports. "Then I would really make a mistake and miss badly. I was just thinking I get 2-0 or 3-0 and then I would tell myself you have to throw a strike. And when you do that, you never throw a strike. It's not like me. I've just got to pound the zone and attack the hitters."

Zimmermann threw 61 strikes in 101 pitches. His next start is scheduled for Friday, against the Marlins and Mat Latos.  


Red Sox tried to trade for Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann in the winter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) The Red Sox tried to trade for Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann this offseason, and while both parties agreed there was a potential match in terms of players, they never came close to a deal, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Zimmermann is in the final year of a two-year, $24 million contract with the Nationals and was unable to come close to a long-term deal before the start of the season. The right-hander holds an 8.64 ERA through his first two starts in 2015.


Nationals P Jordan Zimmermann rocked early in loss to Red Sox


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann struggled against the Red Sox on Monday, allowing seven earned runs in a 9-4 loss. 

Zimmermann was only able to go 2 1/3 innings before being removed. He allowed nine hits, eight runs (one unearned) and one walk. After recording four strikeouts in his first start of the season, he came away with zero against Boston. This was the first time in 147 starts that Zimmermann did strike anyone out in a game. 

Zimmermann faced six batters in each of the first two innings. He then hit Hanley Ramirez with a pitch in the third. After facing seven hitters in the third inning and only recording one out, Tanner Roark relieved him. Zimmermann now holds an 8.64 ERA in two starts. 

The problem Zimmermann primarily had on Monday had to do with getting a feel for the baseball. 

"Yeah, I mean I was bad today," Zimmermann said, via MLB.com. "It's not like me to walk a guy and hit two guys. I just didn't have a feel for the ball and really had no clue where it was going all day. My mechanics were fine. I was rubbing the ball up, and after I'd rub it up, it would still feel chalky. It was just not a good day for me.

His next projected start will be on Saturday against the Phillies.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann saved his worst spring start for last during Wednesday's 8-0 loss to the Marlins. In his final spring outing, Zimmermann (2-1) allowed eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits and no walks in four innings. He had four strikeouts.

Miami got another run off Zimmermann in the third inning before the right-hander settled down to finish off his afternoon with a perfect fourth inning, which included two strikeouts.

Zimmermann came into Wednesday's start having allowed just four runs (three earned) in his first five spring starts (19 2/3 innings). Zimmermann is lined up to make his season debut next Wednesday against the Mets.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Nationals have rolled with Scherzer followed by Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez this spring.


Nationals manager Matt Williams still weighing options for opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Nationals manager Matt Williams has not decided on who his Opening Day starter will be, noting that all five of his pitchers -- Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Max Scherzer, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez -- deserve a chance, per MLB.com.

"A lot goes into it," Williams said. "There's matchups. There is health in the spring. If anybody is a little bit cranky, we want to make sure we back off in that regard. There are three off-days leading up to the regular season. So if we have a hiccup here or there with anybody -- we saw that with Doug last year. … All those things go into it. Track record goes into, knowledge of the [the opponents].

"How they line up is irrelevant when you get past the first [turn through the] rotation anyway," Williams said. "But it's an honor for the guy that's gets chosen [for the Opening Day] start. Everybody wants to get off on the right foot in your first game -- great momentum and all those wonderful things. But if you don't win that first game, it doesn't mean you are dead. You go to the next one."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

He has a 1.93 ERA through 4 2/3 spring innings.

"I was attacking, trying to get ahead with the fastball," Zimmermann said, per MLB.com. "The last outing, I wasn't able to do that, but this one for the most part it was where I wanted it to be. Threw a couple good sliders, a 3-2 curveball that was good, and for the most part getting stronger and getting better."


Nats' Jordan Zimmermann open to talks in spring, not during season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann told reporters Saturday he's open to negotiate a long-term contract extension during spring training but won't listen to the Nationals once the season starts, per Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.

Zimmermann, drafted by Washington in the second round of the 2007 draft, is under contract for one more season. The 28-year-old's representatives met with general manager Mike Rizzo at the winter meetings, but were unable to strike a deal. He posted a 2.66 ERA over 199 2/3 innings in 2014.


Report: Nationals have discussed Jordan Zimmermann trade


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) The Nationals have had conversations with other clubs regarding pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, according to FoxSports.com.

Zimmermann is only under contract for one more season, and it's unclear if the Nationals will be able to sign him to a long-term deal. General manager Mike Rizzo met with Zimmermann's representatives at the winter meetings, but things have been quiet since then. Zimmermann told The Washington Post in December that he was willing to sign with the Nationals, but only if the offer was "fair."

Jordan Zimmermann looking for 'fair' deal from Nationals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann sounds optimistic about negotiations regarding a long-term contract, but added there is still a lot of discussion left after the two sides met at the Winter Meetings last week.

"I’m hopeful, but we got a lot of talking to do," Zimmermann said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously we’ve only had one meeting so far and it went well. We’ll see where it goes."

Although, it doesn't appear Zimmermann is willing to cave in negotiations just because Washington is the only team he has known since being drafted in the second round in 2007.

"If it’s a fair value, like I have said all along, I would gladly sign," Zimmermann said. "But at the end of the day, it’s gotta be something that’s fair and if it’s not, then I’ll be moving on.

"I’m a National for one year, for this upcoming season, and we’ll see if it’s a fair, if we can come up with something that’s fair for both sides, then we’ll sign the deal. At the end of the day, it’s gotta be fair."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It is believed the Nationals previously offered a five-year contract in the range of $60 million to Zimmermann, which was rejected by his reps. The 28-year-old Zimmermann is entering the final season of a two-year, $24 million contract.

(9/28/2014) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann no-hit the Marlins on the final day of the regular season, allowing one walk and striking out 10 while throwing 104 pitches in his team's 1-0 victory.

Zimmermann (14-5) picked up the first no-hitter in Nationals history despite some late drama, as the Marlins followed up a long out to deep center field by driving a ball to the gap in left center before left fielder Steven Souza made an outstanding play on a dive to haul in the final out. Zimmermann ends the regular season with 12 straight quality starts and an 8-0 record during that stretch. He owns a 2.66 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 182:29 K:BB ratio in 199 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"No, I don't expect him to miss a start," manager Matt Williams said. "We may have to look at pushing him a day depending on how he feels. He won't miss one. It's in a good spot. It's not in the front where the tendon is."

Zimmermann is scheduled to pitch during Friday's doubleheader, but may end up starting later in the weekend instead.
