News: Zimmermann recorded his first win of the season Monday at Miami, limiting the Marlins to two earned runs over seven innings. Impact: Zimmermann struck out seven and looked much better than his last time out when he didn't make it through the second inning against the Marlins.(STATS, 5:32pm)

News: Zimmermann bounced back beautifully from his disaster of a start last time out, allowing just two runs in seven innings to earn his first win of the season Monday. Impact: Zimmermann struck out seven in the outing and allowed just six hits. Now that he has rebounded from his bad start last week, he should find his 2013 form in short order. He'll face the Cardinals in his next start.(RotoWire, )

News: Zimmermann was roughed up Wednesday by the Marlins, allowing seven hits, five runs (all earned) and two walks with one strikeout over just 1.2 innings of work. Impact: Zimmermann simply wasn't able to get batters out on Wednesday, as he was removed from the game after just 57 pitches. The 27-year-old found himself falling behind in the count frequently, and Marlins hitters were able to crush the fastballs he was forced to deal. He'll get a chance for redemption next Monday in a rematch against Miami.(RotoWire, )

News: Zimmermann's next start will come Wednesday against the Marlins rather than Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Impact: Tanner Roark was spotted in the bullpen Tuesday afternoon, and it appears as though the Nats are simply flipping the order of their starters. Ultimately, the difference doesn't change much for either pitcher as both will still face the Marlins.(RotoWire, )

News: Zimmermann (illness) gave up one run on four hits and a walk, while striking out nine over five innings, and did not factor into the decision in the Nationals' 2-1 loss to the Braves. Impact: A bout of the flu delayed Zimmermann's 2014 debut by one day, but he took the hill Friday and turned in a strong performance. Taking advantage of a free-swinging Braves team, Zimmermann fanned nine in just five innings, but the high number of pitches also resulted in a rather short outing from the right-hander. Manager Matt Williams lifted Zimmermann for a pinch hitter in the fifth inning after 81 pitches. With the illness behind him, Zimmermann should be at full strength in his next start.(RotoWire, )

News: Zimmermann (illness) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Braves, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Zimmermann may not be 100 percent healthy, but it seems he is feeling good enough to take the field for his season debut Friday. Zimmermann gave up just two earned runs and posted a 13:2 K:BB ratio over 12 innings in two starts against the Braves last season.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Zimmermann (flu) is scheduled to start Friday against the Braves, but that those plans could still change, manager Matt Williams clarified. If Zimmermann is unable to start, Craig Stammen will replace him, the Washington Post's Adam Kilgore reports. Impact: It sounds like Zimmermann is more of a game-time decision to take the ball, than a lock as it appeared earlier Friday morning. If Stammen is forced to start, the Nats would likely lean heavily on their bullpen to chew up innings behind him Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Zimmermann (illness) will start against the Braves on Friday. Impact: Illness caused Zimmermann to be scratched from Thursday's scheduled start against the Mets, but he essentially flipped days with Tanner Roark in the Nats' rotation order.(RotoWire, )

News: Scratched from Washington's series finale in New York because of flu-like symptoms, Zimmermann may start the Nationals' home opener Friday against Atlanta. Impact: Washington's second option Friday would be a series of relievers. David Hale is set to start for the Braves. (STATS, 10:41am)
Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: The Nationals are hoping Zimmermann (illness) can start Friday against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Impact: Flu-like symptoms kept Zimmermann up all night, resulting in his scratch from Thursday's series finale against the Mets. Tanner Roark will move up to take his spot. Taylor Jordan threw a simulated game Tuesday and won't be available to pitch Friday if Zimmermann remains unavailable, so the team could be forced to turn Ross Detwiler for a spot start.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Zimmermann was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday with flu-like symptoms, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports. Impact: With Zimmermann under the weather, Tanner Roark will move up to oppose Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler. The team is likely hoping Zimmermann can kick the bug and take the hill for Friday's home opener against the Braves, but that's far from certain.(RotoWire, )
