Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:The overall fastball package is a plus, touching 94 and sitting comfortably at 91-92 mph.
Curve:His curve projects to be a future average pitch.
Changeup:The change is also projectable as an average pitch.
Slider:Once again, he has one that is below average now, but there's projection to it.
Poise:Zimmermann showed some toughness by coming back from a broken jaw fairly quickly.
Physical Description:He's got a Paul Byrd type of build with a Ben Sheets-like lower body.
Medical Update:He suffered a broken jaw from a line drive earlier in the year, but he returned to form fairly quickly.
Strengths:The arm strength. The plus velocity is intriguing.
Weaknesses:Everything else is just a projection.
Summary:Zimmermann has some intriguing arm strength with an above-average fastball, but his other offerings are well behind. There is projection to all of his offerings and the team who believes the projection the most will take a chance on Zimmermann. He could become a good back-end-of-the-rotation type down the road.
