Analysis: Zimmermann hasn't pitched since Sept. 2 due to this injury, and it was believed the Tigers might just shut him down for the season. However, he felt good after a bullpen session Monday and will get another couple of turns in the rotation. He is 8-12 with a 6.18 ERA in 27 starts, including 1-3 with an 11.03 ERA in his last five.

Aug. 29 9:11 AM PT10:11 AM MT11:11 AM CT12:11 PM ET12:11 ET16:11 GMT0:11 9:11 AM MST11:11 AM EST11:41 AM VEN20:11 UAE11:11 AM CT-Jordan Zimmermann improved to 8-11, allowing three runs on nine hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Monday.

Aug. 24 9:39 PM PT10:39 PM MT11:39 PM CT12:39 AM ET0:39 ET4:39 GMT12:39 9:39 PM MST11:39 PM EST12:09 AM VEN8:39 UAE11:39 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 7-11, allowing seven runs on nine hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the New York Yankees 10-2 on Wednesday. Zimmermann did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 6.11 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann has now permitted seven runs in three straight starts, so at least he's consistent. With a brutal 13.83 ERA and a .409 batting average against during that period, the disappointing righty shouldn't be considered by fantasy players for his upcoming start at Colorado.
Aug. 18 8:54 PM PT9:54 PM MT10:54 PM CT11:54 PM ET23:54 ET3:54 GMT11:54 8:54 PM MST10:54 PM EST11:24 PM VEN7:54 UAE (+1)10:54 PM CT-Zimmermann fell to 7-10, allowing seven runs on 10 hits and two walks in 5.1 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-5 on Friday.

Aug. 7 7:09 PM PT8:09 PM MT9:09 PM CT10:09 PM ET22:09 ET2:09 GMT10:09 7:09 PM MST9:09 PM EST9:39 PM VEN6:09 UAE (+1)9:09 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 7-9, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks in 7.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 on Monday. Zimmermann struck out two, ending the game with a 5.27 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.

Aug. 2 6:09 PM PT7:09 PM MT8:09 PM CT9:09 PM ET21:09 ET1:09 GMT9:09 6:09 PM MST8:09 PM EST8:39 PM VEN5:09 UAE (+1)8:09 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann improved to 7-8, allowing six hits over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the New York Yankees 2-0 on Wednesday. Zimmermann struck out six, ending the game with a 5.35 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann pitched his first scoreless outing for Detroit in 1 1/2 seasons. He did not allow run in his first three outings with the Tigers after signing a $110 million, five-year contract, starting with 24 1/3 scoreless innings last year. The right-hander had not pitched shutout ball in 35 outings since.
July 29 9:30 PM PT10:30 PM MT11:30 PM CT12:30 AM ET0:30 ET4:30 GMT12:30 9:30 PM MST11:30 PM EST12:00 AM VEN8:30 UAE11:30 PM CT-Zimmermann allowed three runs on six hits in 7.0 innings as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Houston Astros 6-5 on Friday.

July 18 9:15 PM PT10:15 PM MT11:15 PM CT12:15 AM ET0:15 ET4:15 GMT12:15 9:15 PM MST11:15 PM EST11:45 PM VEN8:15 UAE11:15 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann improved to 6-7, allowing one run on seven hits in 6.2 innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Kansas City Royals 10-2 on Monday. Zimmermann struck out seven, ending the game with a 5.58 ERA and 1.49 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann threw 79 of 97 pitches for strikes. His dominance was partly a result of first-pitch strikes to 24 of the 28 batters he faced, which helped the right-hander win for the first time since June 3. He had allowed at least four runs each of his last three starts, and was 0-4 with a 6.99 ERA on the road.
July 7 8:06 PM PT9:06 PM MT10:06 PM CT11:06 PM ET23:06 ET3:06 GMT11:06 8:06 PM MST10:06 PM EST10:36 PM VEN7:06 UAE (+1)10:06 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 5-7, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk in 3.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Cleveland Indians 11-2 on Friday. Zimmermann struck out two, ending the game with a 5.87 ERA and 1.52 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann is 0-3 with a 5.67 ERA in his last six starts. His last win came back on June 3.
July 1 8:35 PM PT9:35 PM MT10:35 PM CT11:35 PM ET23:35 ET3:35 GMT11:35 8:35 PM MST10:35 PM EST11:05 PM VEN7:35 UAE (+1)10:35 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 5-6, allowing four runs on five hits and one walk in 5.2 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Cleveland Indians 4-1 on Saturday. Zimmermann struck out five, ending the game with a 5.58 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season.
June 26 10:25 AM PT11:25 AM MT12:25 PM CT1:25 PM ET13:25 ET17:25 GMT1:25 10:25 AM MST12:25 PM EST12:55 PM VEN21:25 UAE12:25 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann allowed five runs on six hits and three walks in a season-low four innings as the Detroit Tigers defeated the San Diego Padres 7-5 on Sunday. Zimmermann struck out five, ending the game with a 5.53 ERA and 1.49 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann, who had recorded a quality start in each of his previous four outings, will make his first start of the season against the Indians on Saturday. In his only matchup with them in 2016, Zimmermann was knocked around for seven runs and nine hits in 3.2 innings in a 7-5 loss on June 24.
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.
June 15 9:37 AM PT10:37 AM MT11:37 AM CT12:37 PM ET12:37 ET16:37 GMT0:37 9:37 AM MST11:37 AM EST12:07 PM VEN20:37 UAE11:37 AM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 5-5, allowing two runs on six hits in 8.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Wednesday. 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.''
June 10 9:48 PM PT10:48 PM MT11:48 PM CT12:48 AM ET0:48 ET4:48 GMT12:48 9:48 PM MST11:48 PM EST12:18 AM VEN8:48 UAE11:48 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann allowed two runs on six hits and three walks in 6.0 innings as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-3 on Friday. 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.
June 3 5:07 PM PT6:07 PM MT7:07 PM CT8:07 PM ET20:07 ET0:07 GMT8:07 5:07 PM MST7:07 PM EST7:37 PM VEN4:07 UAE (+1)7:07 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann improved to 5-4, allowing one run on seven hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Chicago White Sox 10-1 on Saturday. 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.
May 28 3:36 PM PT4:36 PM MT5:36 PM CT6:36 PM ET18:36 ET22:36 GMT6:36 3:36 PM MST5:36 PM EST6:06 PM VEN2:36 UAE (+1)5:36 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 4-4, allowing seven runs on eight hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Chicago White Sox 7-3 on Sunday. Zimmermann struck out three, ending the game with a 6.47 ERA and 1.56 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: He has allowed more than three runs in eight of his 10 starts this season.
May 24 10:38 AM PT11:38 AM MT12:38 PM CT1:38 PM ET13:38 ET17:38 GMT1:38 10:38 AM MST12:38 PM EST1:08 PM VEN21:38 UAE12:38 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 4-3, allowing four runs - two earned - on five hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Houston Astros 6-2 on Tuesday.

May 18 1:53 PM PT2:53 PM MT3:53 PM CT4:53 PM ET16:53 ET20:53 GMT4:53 1:53 PM MST3:53 PM EST4:23 PM VEN0:53 UAE (+1)3:53 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann improved to 4-2, allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Baltimore Orioles 6-5 on Thursday. Zimmermann struck out six, ending the game with a 6.25 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann allowed two more homers and has given up 10 in 28 innings over his last five starts.
May 13 10:44 AM PT11:44 AM MT12:44 PM CT1:44 PM ET13:44 ET17:44 GMT1:44 10:44 AM MST12:44 PM EST1:14 PM VEN21:44 UAE12:44 PM CT-Jordan Zimmermann fell to 3-2, allowing five runs - four earned - on 10 hits and three walks in 5.1 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Los Angeles Angels 7-0 on Friday. Zimmermann struck out two, ending the game with a 6.28 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season.
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.''
May 7 9:27 AM PT10:27 AM MT11:27 AM CT12:27 PM ET12:27 ET16:27 GMT0:27 9:27 AM MST11:27 AM EST11:57 AM VEN20:27 UAE11:27 AM CT-Jordan Zimmermann allowed four runs on five hits and one walk in 5.2 innings as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Oakland Athletics 6-5 on Saturday. Zimmermann struck out four, ending the game with a 6.21 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Zimmermann has been a disaster in the Tigers' rotation so far, as opponents have lit him up to the tune of a .908 OPS and eight homers in 33 1/3 innings.
Apr. 30 2:38 PM PT3:38 PM MT4:38 PM CT5:38 PM ET17:38 ET21:38 GMT5:38 2:38 PM MST4:38 PM EST5:08 PM VEN1:38 UAE (+1)4:38 PM CT-Zimmermann improved to 3-1, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Chicago White Sox 7-3 on Sunday.
Analysis: Zimmermann struck out five, ending the game with a 6.18 ERA and 1.63 WHIP on the season.
Apr. 26 6:48 AM PT7:48 AM MT8:48 AM CT9:48 AM ET9:48 ET13:48 GMT21:48 6:48 AM MST8:48 AM EST9:18 AM VEN17:48 UAE8:48 AM CT-Zimmermann allowed allowed five runs in six innings of a 19-9 win over the Mariners on Tuesday.
Analysis: Zimmermann, who was tagged for 11 hits after yielding 10 in his previous outing, has given up five runs in each of his last three starts.
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.
