Nationals’ Jordan Zimmermann thanks fans ahead of free agency
Zimmermann, who is entering free agency this offseason, wrote that it was difficult to put his appreciation for his fans into words.
“Although I may no longer wear the curly W on my head or chest, Nationals fans always will be in my heart. Thank you again for everything!” Zimmermann said through his agent, Mark Pieper.
Pieper did not rule out a return to Washington for his client.
The right-hander spent his entire career with the Nationals since signing with them in 2007. Zimmermann, 29, has 70 games and has been named to the All-Star team twice.
Zimmermann finished this season 13-10 with a 3.66 ERA.
Washington finished the year 83-79, missing the postseason and finishing second in the NL East behind the Mets.
