He improved to 9-3 with a 3.46 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through 12 starts. Although he got the victory, Zimmermann will surely be looking for a better showing Sunday at the Royals.

Toronto tagged him for eight hits, including two home runs. Zimmermann walked two and struck out only three while watching his season ERA jump from 2.58 to 3.30.

Through 10 starts with the Tigers, Zimmermann has compiled an 8-2 record, 2.58 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 43/13 K/BB ratio across 66 1/3 innings.

Jordan Zimmermann (groin) will try to throw long-toss on Friday.

And if it goes well, he could try throwing off a mound on Sunday. Zimmermann was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain of his right groin muscle after making an early exit from his start Sunday against the Rays. A disabled list stint is still a real possibility.
May 24 - 4:40 PM

Jordan Zimmermann underwent an MRI which showed a Grade 1 strain of his right groin.

Zimmermann suffered the injury during Sunday's start against the Rays, but fortunately it's the least severe type of strain. The Tigers expect to skip his next scheduled start this weekend, but it's possible he'll be ready not too long after that. He won't be placed on the DL, at least for now.
May 23 - 4:23 PM

Jordan Zimmermann has been diagnosed with a strained right groin.

May 22 - 3:08 PM

Jordan Zimmermann departed Sunday's start against the Rays with an undisclosed injury.

It looked like Zimmermann might have tweaked his groin while delivering a pitch in the sixth inning. The Tigers should have an update on his condition shortly. He allowed two runs over 5 2/3 frames before leaving.

Jordan Zimmermann had the ultimate mixed bag outing Monday, whiffing nine with zero walks but allowing eight runs -- seven earned -- over seven frames in a 10-8 win over the Twins.

However, the Tigers retook the lead in the bottom of the frame, netting the righty his sixth victory. Zimmermann will carry a 2.45 ERA into this weekend's matchup versus the Rays.
May 16 - 10:22 PM

Jordan Zimmermann took the hard-luck loss after allowing just three runs in seven innings against the Nationals on Wednesday night.

Zimmermann did what he has done all season. He worked deep into the game, only struck out three, and tossed his seventh-consecutive quality start. Unfortunately, the right-hander squared off against the buzzsaw better known as Max Scherzer, who dominated the contest and struck out 20. Zimmermann ultimately took his second loss of the season and saw his ERA rise to 1.50. He’ll next get the Twins at home.
May 11 - 10:06 PM

Jordan Zimmermann suffered his first loss of the 2016 season on Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits over eight innings against the Rangers.

Zimmermann walked one and struck out two on the night. The Rangers scratched out a pair of runs against him in the second inning, then added on another in the fifth. He has been terrific in his transition to the American League through his first six starts, posting a 1.10 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 25/8 K/BB ratio over 41 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Wednesday when he battles his former club in Washington.
