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.
