Jordan Zimmermann Return Likely to be Delayed Two Weeks

July 7th, 2016

The Detroit Tigers will likely be without ace starter Jordan Zimmermann for an additional two weeks after he was placed on the 15-day disabled list on July 4th with a neck strain. Originally placed on the DL retroactive of July 2nd, Zimmermann will reportedly need extra time to recover after visiting with a neck specialist. 

The expectation here is that Zimmermann will not be ready to return until late July. 

A two-time All-Star, Zimmermann has posted a 9-4 record with a 3.95 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 15 starts this year, his first with the Tigers after coming over from the Washington Nationals.
