The added inning and already better K/9 also means Gio should be 40-50 more K's than Zimmerman, as the switch to the NL may only serve to further that gap. ERA is a legitimate toss-up, so there's no real way to say who has the edge there. Gio certainly walks more batters, but he strikes more out at as well, getting his strand rate up and keeping his ERA down. The WHIP is the only arena Zimmerman has the clear edge, and it could be significant, but if you want to start drafting pitchers on WHIP alone, good luck to you. I will take the massive K's, probable more W's, and worse WHIP every time.

He might have an innings cap because they will be out of the playoffs by August. There is also a huge injury risk. As I mentioned in my post I don't see how you can count on him in H2H. In Roto is rate stats make him more attractive than Gonzalez who is just barely rosterable but at least he'll play every day.
