Bradley Zimmer went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored versus the Orioles on Wednesday.

He stole 44 and 38 bases the last two years in the minor leagues and had nine steals before he was called up this year. He has a good chance to develop into an all-around fantasy contributor with power and speed as he matures. Jun 22 - 12:10 AM

The exciting young rookie plated a pair with a two-bagger in the fourth to put the Indians in the lead and he later homered in the eighth to pad the Tribe's advantage. Zimmer's batting line is up to .314/.400/.600 after the big night. He also batted seventh Tuesday, which isn't ideal but it's just the second time he been higher than the No. 8 spot.
May 30 - 9:34 PM

Bradley Zimmer had another nice day at the plate in Sunday's victory over the Astros, going 2-for-3 with an RBI.

He also drew a walk, reaching base safely in three of his four plate appearances. The 24-year-old is hitting .267/.389/.533 in his short stay with the Indians and is looking like he belongs in the big leagues.
May 21 - 5:18 PM

Bradley Zimmer registered his first major league stolen base Saturday against the Astros.

Zimmer went 0-for-2 with a walk while batting ninth for the Tribe, and after his free pass to lead off the fifth inning, he swiped second off catcher Evan Gattis. The 24-year-old stole 103 bases over four minor league seasons before his promotion, so there will certainly be more to come now that he's got one under his belt. In four games with the Indians, Zimmer has two hits -- a double and a home run -- in 12 at-bats.
May 20 - 7:42 PM

Bradley Zimmer hit an RBI double and a solo home run in the Indians' loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

Zimmer struck out in all three of his plate appearances Tuesday in his major league debut, but the 24-year-old showed off his dynamic skillset on Wednesday afternoon. He roped an RBI double off the left-center field wall in the bottom of the third inning and beat a good throw to the plate moments later on a Jason Kipnis RBI single. Zimmer then launched his first career homer to dead center in the bottom of the ninth off Rays closer Alex Colome. Zimmer finished the day 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored.
May 17 - 3:38 PM

Bradley Zimmer had a forgettable major league debut Tuesday, striking out in all three plate appearances against the Rays.

All three whiffs were of the swinging variety, as Jake Odorizzi got him twice and Jose Alvarado got him once. Zimmer is an enticing talent with his power/speed combo, but he's going to pile up the strikeouts in bunches. He batted ninth for the Indians in his debut.
May 16 - 9:35 PM

Bradley Zimmer will start in center field and hit ninth in his MLB debut Tuesday against the Rays.

Get excited, Indians fans. Zimmer scuffled during his first stint in Triple-A last year, but he made some changes with his swing over the winter and earned his first call-up after hitting .294/.371/.532 with five homers and nine steals through 33 games this season. The 24-year-old could stick around if he produces out of the gate, so he's worth watching in mixed fantasy leagues.
May 16 - 2:21 PM

Indians purchased the contract of OF Bradley Zimmer from Triple-A Columbus.

He'll join the big club with Abraham Almonte (biceps) hitting the disabled list. Zimmer, arguably the Indians' top prospect, was hitting .294/.371/.532 with five homers and nine steals through 33 games this season in Triple-A. Strikeouts are still an issue for him, but his blend of pop and speed makes him worth adding outside of shallow mixed fantasy leagues.
May 16 - 12:41 PM

Indians outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer picked up two hits on Wednesday for Triple-A Columbus.

Zimmer also scored a run, knocked in a run, and drew a walk. He also struck out twice, which remains the biggest concern for Zimmer going forward. He can do a little bit of everything, but will he able to reach his potential with this many strikeouts? Time will tell, but history says it's difficult.
May 11 - 1:02 PM

Cleveland outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer went 2-for-4 on Sunday for Triple-A Columbus.

Zimmer did strike out once, but he also doubled and scored a run. The strikeouts are still an issue, but he's hitting for average and power, and he's drawing walks to help compensate for the swing-and-miss. He's also stolen four bases making him a well-rounded fantasy prospect. Those darn strikeouts, though.
Apr 17 - 1:48 PM

Cleveland outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer had a strong debut on Thursday, going 2-for-4 with a run scored for Triple-A Columbus.

Picking up a couple of hits is great, but perhaps the most important takeaway from the game is that Zimmer didn't strike out, a welcome sign after striking out 171 times last summer. Because of the contact issues Zimmer has become a polarizing "real-life" prospect, but his ability to run and hit for power makes him plenty relevant in fantasy. It will likely take an injury to the Cleveland outfield to see him up, but the upside here is palpable.
