Royals prospect RHP Kyle Zimmer allowed one hit and one walk and worked 1/3 of an inning on Sunday in his season debut with Rookie-level Idaho Falls.
The outing was the first time Zimmer has pitched in a game this season, as he only began throwing last month after experiencing a setback in May with his recovery from a lat strain. Prior to the injury, the 22-year-old right-hander had been sidelined for the first six weeks of the season with shoulder inflammation. In 2013, Zimmer registered a disappointing 4.32 ERA in 108 1/3 innings between High-A Wilmington and Double-A Northwest Arkansas, but he still managed to hold opposing batters to a .224 average while striking out 140 batters during that span. He was flat-out dominant over his final eight starts, with a 1.85 ERA, .163 BAA and 63-9 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 43 2/3 innings. If all goes as planned with his rehab work, Zimmer should be ready to make up for the lost time in the Arizona Fall League. Aug 18 - 5:57 PM
