Zimmermann went 8-11 last season with a 3.18 ERA and 124 strikeouts in 161.1 innings pitched in his first year in return form Tommy John surgery. The 25-year-old is considered one of the best young starting pitchers in the league and will likely be slotted third in the Nationals' talented young rotation.
