Quality start in loss
PBaltimore Orioles
May 14, 2022
Zimmermann (2-2) gave up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out two in six innings Saturday against the Tigers. He took the loss.
ANALYSIS
He gave up home runs to Eric Haase and Willi Castro but was able to hold on to go six innings for the second start in a row and third time this season. Zimmerman had only given up one home run in his prior six starts. The two strikeouts were easily a season low, as he has struck out at least four in every other start. He projects to face the Yankees at home next week.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Zimmermann didn't fare very well in his first taste of major-league action in 2020, allowing six runs over seven innings across two appearances. His 4.04 SIERA was much more encouraging than his production on the surface, but he appears to be in line for a swingman role if he makes the major-league roster in 2021. Zimmermann posted a 22.6 K%, which is similar to his numbers in the minors, even though he has a lackluster 91.5 mph average fastball velocity. He's had a groundball rate below 50.0% in each of the past two seasons in the minors, and he had a subpar BABIP against higher-level talent. The 26-year-old was somewhat unlucky in his first taste of major-league action, but he could earn a spot in the big leagues to begin the 2021 season. Zimmermann would have a slight uptick in fantasy value if he earns a rotation spot in 2021, but his lack of dominance against batters leaves something to be desired.
