6IP, 72P, 6H, 2ER, 1BB, 3K in his debut against Atlanta today. He's in line for the win and the game is currently in a rain delay in the 8th. Pretty solid outing.

Taking a look at MLB gameday it looks like he was hitting 95mph with his fastball at the start of the game and dropped to 92-93 at the end of the game. There's alot of cool stuff to look at using MLB gameday (live boxscore).

Yea, he looked solid, but he could be having the "rookie" effect. I'd like to see 2-3 more starts before I sing his praises too much.

He was also throwing 78 mph curves and an offspeed fastball in the 80's. :-L

He had a solid start today, but I'd wait and observe a few more of his starts before drooling all over him.

Yeah, I noticed that too...93-95 the first 4 innings, around 93 in the 5th, and at 92 for the 6th.
Gameday is really cool, love how it has Pitch FX.

Kid looks good, too bad he plays for the Nats. It's like watching Greinke when he came up.

He's got two starts next week, but I'm not sure I'd trust him facing the Phils (Hamels) and Cards (Wainwright)...

scouting report of his game last night:

http://projectprospect.com/article/2009 ... -mlb-debut

Four-seam fastball: While Zimmermann throws hard, his fastball wasn't fooling the Braves much tonight. All six of their hits were off of the pitch -- including a Matt Diaz no-doubt homer in the fourth inning (0-2 count). He doesn't hide the pitch well. And while it does have some occasional movement (tailing action into righties), it's pretty straight. Zimmermann also struggled hitting his spots with his four-seamer, especially late in the game. He threw it for strikes, just didn't always command it well in the zone. On the plus side, he's not afraid to challenge hitters with high fastballs.


They also noted that they didn't see him throw a change at all too. Let's see how he develops...

Not complaining with what I got last night from this kid. That said I don't see him going over 150 IP this year. Currently I might find myself having to start him b/c of several injuries to my pitching staff (Hoffman, Kuroda, Dice-K) so as not to fall behind further in counting stats but if he can keep down the ERA I'll be happy.
