Is Jordan Zimmerman 2013's Kris Medlen?

Postby Russell Muscle » Tue Jun 11, 2013 9:20 am

Can Zimmerman maintain this pace?

ROS over or under predictions
18 wins
150 k's
2.50 ERA


Jordan Zimmerman ROS or David Price ROS?

No, in the sense that Jordan Zimmermann is a far superior pitcher to Kris Medlen. Medlen had a great half-year. Zimmermann pitches at this level for fun.

18 wins might be about right. 150 k's are probably a little high. Last year he just go to 150 with a 7 k/9 and this year he is at 5.8 k/9. That would be a big jump in his k's to make up the difference. ERA is probably a little low and I would bet it will end closer to 3 than 2.5.

I will take Price.

Zimm's K rate started off low each of the past two seasons before finishing up near 7k/9 each time.

Zimmermann can get strikeouts just fine; K-rate of over 9 in the minor leagues. He simply chooses not to.

Jordan Zimmermann is the Chuck Norris of pitching.
