Has not pitched in over a week, and I can't find any news. Did I miss something??

Thanks from a worried owner

Heard he was named 5th starter. However he'll begin the season in the minor leagues and make his major-league debut on 4/19 (they won't need a 5th starter until then).

Here's a link

Thanks for the link, nice article. But it still does not explain why he has not pitched since the 21st. I think it is strange to go over 10 days without throwing the ball.

Take a few deep breaths and go have a beer. He is throwing. Just not in ST games.

Thanks, but it does seem strange. Need two beers for this one!

Make it one for him and one for yourself. i don't get too worked up over these guys. Remember Philip Hughes? He may pan out this year, but like many of us on this site, put too much stock in him his first two years. Zimmerman is gifted but also still a long shot this year. I have him in two leagues, but if he doesn't pan out right away, no worries.

I understand that part, but don't understand why he is not at least throwing in a game here and there. Good for the arm, you know?

Sort of like Chris Davis, have not seen his name in a box score recently...
