June 21 8:14 AM PT9:14 AM MT10:14 AM CT11:14 AM ET11:14 ET15:14 GMT23:14 8:14 AM MST10:14 AM EST10:44 AM VEN19:14 UAE10:14 AM CT-Jordan Zimmermann allowed three runs on six hits and three walks in 6.2 innings as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Seattle Mariners 5-4 on Tuesday. Zimmermann struck out seven, ending the game with a 5.25 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Though he's won just one since mid-May, Zimmermann does own a solid 2.70 ERA over a stretch of four consecutive quality starts. Suppressing the long ball has been the key to the right-hander's recent success, as he's yielded just two homers over those four outings after giving up 16 through his first 10 starts.

Zimmermann struck out six, ending the game with a 5.35 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was the third straight quality start for Zimmermann and the first time this year he had gone more than six innings. ''The first inning, I gave up four hits, I believe,'' Zimmermann said. ''A little blooper and three ground balls that got through the hole. Other than that, I felt like my stuff was the best it's been in a Tigers' uniform.''

Zimmermann struck out three, ending the game with a 5.72 ERA and 1.55 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann may finally be rounding into form, as he's yielded only three runs in 12 innings over his last two starts after posting an ugly 6.47 ERA in his first 10. The right-hander will attempt to maintain his recent success in a home interleague matchup with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Zimmermann struck out five, ending the game with a 5.98 ERA and 1.56 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann faced the White Sox just six days ago and was rocked for seven runs in five innings, so he obviously made some adjustments. He's yet to turn in consecutive quality starts this season, something to keep in mind when he takes on the Angels at home on Thursday.

Analysis: Zimmermann has been tagged for at least four runs in five of his last six starts, giving up at least 10 hits in three of them. ''The velocity is pretty good, it's the command,'' manager Brad Ausmus said. ''He threw some good breaking balls, they just weren't consistently in the spot he wanted.''

Apr. 13 5:41 PM PT6:41 PM MT7:41 PM CT8:41 PM ET20:41 ET0:41 GMT8:41 5:41 PM MST7:41 PM EST8:11 PM VEN4:41 UAE (+1)7:41 PM CT-Zimmermann allowed five runs, four hits and a career-high five walks in 4 2/3 innings as he lost to the Twins on Thursday.
Analysis: It was a rare show of poor control from Zimmermann, who hadn't walked two consecutive batters since 2012 but walked three of the first four in the fourth inning. Zimmermann said he had a hard time gripping the ball. The temperature at game time was 47 degrees, and the right-hander said the wind made conditions tough. ''I had no clue where the ball was going,'' he said. Zimmermann could have an easier time Wednesday in Tampa.
Apr. 8 2:44 PM PT3:44 PM MT4:44 PM CT5:44 PM ET17:44 ET21:44 GMT5:44 2:44 PM MST4:44 PM EST5:14 PM VEN1:44 UAE (+1)4:44 PM CT-Zimmermann turned in a strong first start of the season, limiting the Red Sox to one run on four hits and a walk over six innings to lead the Tigers to Saturday's 4-1 victory.
Analysis: It's a good first impression from a player the Tigers are counting on heavily for a bounce-back, injury-free season. Zimmermann is no stranger to good beginnings, as he recorded a terrific 0.55 ERA while winning all five of his starts last April.
