Jordan Zimmermann earns first win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann picked up his first win of the season Monday, surrendering two earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out seven in his team's 9-2 win over the Marlins.

Zimmermann (1-0) took a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the second inning before giving up an RBI single. A solo home run in the sixth would close the gap to 5-2, but that's as close as the Marlins would get as the Nationals pitcher exacted revenge after being knocked around by the same team in his previous start.

Zimmermann owns a 5.27 ERA and 17:4 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings over his three starts. He'll take on the Cardinals at home Saturday.


Marlins jump all over Jordan Zimmermann


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann wasn't fooling anyone in his start against the Marlins Wednesday, as he was chased in the second inning of a 10-7 win.

Zimmermann struggled through the shortest start of his career, as the Marlins tagged him for five earned runs on seven hits in just 1 2/3 innings. He struck out just one and walked two, while allowing two extra-base hits. He ended up throwing just 57 pitches, 34 for strikes.
Zimmermann hasn't been at the top of his game through his first two starts, posting an 8.10 ERA in 6 2/3 innings of work. He has managed to escape with a no-decision in each start, and will try to get back on track in his next start Monday against the Marlins. 


Nationals finalize rotation plans for rest of week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) The Nationals finalized their rotation plans for the rest of the week.

K-happy Jordan Zimmermann stuck with no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann racked up the strikeouts Friday against Atlanta, but one mistake prevented him from leaving the game with a chance to win.

Zimmermann fanned at least one batter in each of the five innings he pitched, striking out the side in the fourth. But he surrendered a leadoff home run to Evan Gattis in the fifth inning and was victimized by a lack of offensive support.

He finished having given up one run on four hits with one walk with nine strikeouts. A no-decision was clinched when his team tied the game in the sixth.

Zimmermann is slated for an April 10 start against Miami.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Jordan Zimmermann finishes fantastic spring in style


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Zimmermann added five shutout innings Thursday against the Mets to already sensational numbers. He surrendered four hits and walked none while striking out three in his last spring start.

Jordan Zimmermann continues strong spring campaign


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann gave up his first run of the spring Sunday against the Tigers, but he was still very effective in his second straight four-inning outing. The right-hander gave up one run on four hits and no walks, while striking out three.

The Tigers got their only run on a Don Kelly RBI groundout in the first inning. Zimmermann bounced back to throw three scoreless innings before being replaced by Sammy Solis in the fifth inning.

Zimmermann has allowed just one run in 13 spring innings, which is good enough for a 0.69 ERA. He has 12 strikeouts and has issued just one walk.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann maintained his excellent spring pace Tuesday, pitching four perfect innings and striking out four in his team's 3-2 win over the Yankees.

While Tuesday's win was Zimmermann's best performance this spring, he has yet to allow a run in three starts, giving up only three hits and one walk while striking out nine in nine innings.

Speculation: Homer Bailey deal could affect Jordan Zimmerman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2014) The six-year contract signed by Reds right-hander Homer Bailey could result in Nationals counterpart Jordan Zimmermann bolting after his two-year contract expires, the Washington Post has speculated.

The two boast similar statistics. But the $24 million extension signed by Zimmermann pales in comparison to the Bailey deal worth $17.5 million annually. If Zimmermann continues to perform well, he could price himself out of the market for the Nationals.


Jordan Zimmermann not looking to break the bank


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann is not looking to break the bank in his contract talks, according to Nats Insider.

Zimmermann won't be a free-agent until after the 2015 season, but was able to get his remaining extension years covered by the club. The team has expressed a desire to sign Zimmermann to a long-term deal, but the two sides were reportedly far off during the offseason.

Zimmermann said he knows there's a lot of money in the game, but that he's not looking for a record-breaking contract. "I just want to be paid fair and be paid what I’m worth," he said. Zimmermann added that he enjoys being in Washington, and is focused on winning now. "Obviously I like it here," Zimmermann said. "But if we can’t come to an agreement here, then I might be moving on. But that’s a few years away. We don’t have to be thinking about that now. Think about winning this year."

Nationals hope to extend Jordan Zimmermann, Ian Desmond


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) This offseason, the Nationals are hoping to sign pitcher Jordan Zimmermann and shortstop Ian Desmond to contract extensions similar to the one signed by third baseman Ryan Zimmerman in February 2012, the Washington Post reports.

"Those long-term contracts, you really have to know that personality and the track record and the history," general manager Mike Rizzo said during the winter meetings. "I think that makes it easier to give guys longer-term contracts that you know than guys you’re going out in the free agent market and that you don’t know as well."
