Zimmermann (2-1) gave up five runs on 11 hits -- including three homers -- over six innings Tuesday, but he benefited from a 19-run outburst by the Tigers' offense to gain a win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

He may have a winning record, but the early returns have been quite bad for Zimmermann, who's now given up five runs in three consecutive starts. Never the most prolific strikeout artist, he's seen his ability to miss bats fall off a cliff -- with just one whiff Tuesday, he has only 11 in his first 22.2 innings. It's hard to own a guy in most fantasy leagues when he gives up that much contact.

Zimmermann (1-1) went six innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Wednesday, allowing five earned runs on 10 hits. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmermann wasn't fooling Tampa Bay hitters, but he was spared the loss by an offense that scored seven runs. Zimmermann has now allowed five earned runs in consecutive starts, which isn't helping to ease concerns following a 4.87 ERA in 2016. He'll look to turn things around Tuesday against the Mariners at home.

Zimmerman (1-1) allowed five runs on four hits while issuing five walks over 4.2 innings in the Tigers' loss to the Twins on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After beginning the game with two scoreless innings, things started to spiral downhillr for Zimmerman shortly after. The 30-year-old right-hander explained some of his struggles after the game by stating that he had trouble gripping the baseball all day, per Matthew B. Mowery of The Oakland Press. Zimmerman will look to regain the form he showed in his first start of the season when he allowed just one run in six innings.

Zimmermann went six innings and earned the win Saturday against the Red Sox. He allowed four hits and just one earned run, while striking out three.

EDGE Analysis

After posting a 4.87 ERA and career-worst 1.37 WHIP last season, this is certainly an encouraging start. Zimmermann had a rough spring, but he did say he felt healthy after injuries derailed him in 2016. His next start is scheduled for Thursday at home against the Twins.

Zimmermann is scheduled to start Saturday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The Tigers have decided to shuffle things around a bit in the rotation following Wednesday's postponement, rather than simply moving everyone back a day. Matt Boyd is now scheduled for Thursday, and will be followed by Michael Fulmer, Zimmermann, Daniel Norris and Justin Verlander (in that order). Zimmermann struggled to a 9.42 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in spring training.

Zimmerman won't make his scheduled start Wednesday after the Tigers' game against the White Sox was postponed due to rain, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With rain descending on Chicago again Wednesday, the White Sox and Tigers will have a game postponed for the second time in the series. Wednesday's game will be made up as part of a straight doubleheader May 26. Manager Brad Ausmus hasn't mentioned how the postponement will affect his rotation plans, but it's expected that Zimmermann will simply have his start pushed back to Thursday in the series finale with the White Sox.

Zimmermann said he's not worried about his 9.42 spring training ERA because he feels healthy, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

"As I've gotten older, I know it's more about getting my arm ready and working on things, so I don't really look into the numbers too much," Zimmermann said. "As long as I'm healthy, that's the main thing." Fantasy owners should still be cautious, however, as the righty has seen his ERA climb by a full run in each of the last two seasons, and the ugly spring results certainly don't point toward a turn around.

Zimmermann retired just two batters in Wednesday's spring training win over the Braves, while allowing four hits and four earned runs.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a poor spring for the 30-year-old, as he's allowed 13 hits and 10 earned runs in just six innings. But the important thing at this point is that ZImmermann is healthy after he endured an injury-marred 2016. Still, fantasy owners should probably temper their expectations for Zimmermann, who's seen his ERA climb by a full run in each of the last two seasons.

Zimmerman struck out one and allowed one run on two hits in 2.0 innings during his spring debut Monday.

EDGE Analysis

This is a big first step for Zimmerman, who was only able to pitch 105.1 innings in 2016 due to neck issues. He received two neck injections over the offseason and reportedly came into spring training feeling 100 percent. The 30-year-old is looking to rebound after posting a 4.87 ERA last season, and staying healthy will be the key for him in 2017.

Zimmermann is reporting full health at the beginning of spring training, The Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Injuries derailed Zimmermann in 2016 after a solid start to the season. He received two neck injections during the offseason, and his health will be a critical storyline during spring training. He projects as the Tigers' No. 3 starter behind Justin Verlander and Michael Fulmer. Fantasy owners will want to tread cautiously, but Zimmermann does offer some appeal as a discounted option this season. Just don't get too attached.
