Jordan Zimmermann missed most of the 2010 season due to Tommy John surgery, but worked his way back ahead of schedule and was able to quickly make his way through 4 MiLB levels and pitch 31 innings for the Nationals by the end of the season. Zimmermann looked less rusty than most returning from TJ surgery as his control was just as good as it was in 2009. On the other hand his fastball and slider command would noticeably abandon him at times and his frustration with that was visible on the mound. Before the surgery Zimmermann showed the ability to strikeout more than a batter per inning with a good walk rate (2.9 BB/9), and a GB tilt to boot. He throws strikes and works quickly with 4 above average pitches. Zimmermann will definitely go undervalued in 2011 and could be a top 5 NL SP by the beginning of 2012.
