Jordan Zimmermann's poor outing due to long layoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann blamed his struggles during a five-inning no-decision Tuesday at Colorado on the long layoff between starts and not the biceps injury he had been recovering from. Due to the All-Star break, Zimmermann went 11 days between starts.

"My command was way off," Zimmermann said, per The Washington Post. "I’m hoping it’s because of the days off. I was just missing over the middle. I’d get two strikes, and I’d miss over the middle, and it seemed to be a double or a triple every time. It was a battle tonight. I seemed to have my hands full every inning. I had to work extremely hard. I’m glad we got the win.

"It wasn’t the bicep. The bicep felt great. I was a little rusty, but I made it through it just fine. I feel I’ll be a lot better next time."

Zimmermann made it through a scoreless fourth inning before giving up a Corey Dickerson solo shot in the fifth. He threw 76 pitches during the outing.
