  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Sent packing to Triple-A

    The Orioles optioned Zimmermann to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

    Zimmermann was among the candidates to fill in for Kyle Bradish (elbow) and John Means (elbow) in the rotation, but he quickly fell behind Tyler Wells and Cole Irvin in the pecking order and never made up ground. The left-hander will be part of Norfolk's rotation.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Giving up too many runners

    Zimmermann has allowed five runs (three earned) on 12 hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over 7.2 innings in Grapefruit League play.

    Zimmermann's history as a starter made it possible he'd be considered for a spot in the rotation, but all three of his spring appearances have come in relief. He's also giving up too many baserunners with a 1.96 WHIP in spring -- those kinds of numbers could lead to him being in the bullpen to begin the year if he makes the major-league roster.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Has chance at rotation spot

    Zimmermann could be in the mix for a rotation spot with John Means (elbow) and Kyle Bradish (elbow) likely to miss the start of the season, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Zimmermann covered 13.1 major-league innings last season, posting a 4.73 ERA and 14:0 K:BB. With Triple-A Norfolk, he featured as a starter, but ended up with middling results -- a 4-7 record, 4.42 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 110:39 K:BB through 99.2 innings across 21 starts. Zimmermann will need a strong spring to secure a spot in the rotation -- Cole Irvin and Tyler Wells will likely be favored to fill out that group if the Orioles begin the year with a five-man rotation. Zimmermann could ultimately find himself in a swingman role.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Fully healthy

    Zimmermann (abdomen) said Saturday he should be a "full go" for spring training, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

    Zimmermann first suffered the injury in July but was able to pitch through it, per Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com, and he went under the knife to address the issue in October. Zimmermann spent most of last season at Triple-A Norfolk, where he posted a 4.42 ERA and 1.55 WHIP across 99.2 innings, and he'll compete for an Opening Day roster spot during spring training.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Demoted to minors

    The Orioles optioned Zimmermann to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

    Zimmermann was sent out to make room on the 26-man active roster for first baseman Ryan Mountcastle (vertigo), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Recalled from Triple-A

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Orioles optioned Zimmermann to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.

    Zimmermann has appeared in three games since being recalled from the minors June 24, allowing three runs on six hits (including two homers) while striking out five batters in 5.1 innings. He'll now return to Norfolk while Chris Vallimont comes up to take his place as Baltimore's long reliever.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Nabs win Monday

    Zimmermann (1-0) allowed two runs on four hits and struck out two without walking a batter over three innings to earn the win Monday over the Reds.

    A rain delay caused Cole Irvin to exit after three innings, and Zimmermann was the beneficiary in earning his first win in three major-league outings. He has a 6.75 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with an 8:0 K:BB over eight innings this season. His grip on a long-relief role in the Orioles' bullpen is tenuous, as Zimmermann could be optioned out again whenever the team needs a fresh arm.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Rejoins big club

    Zimmermann was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.

    Zimmermann made two starts while with the Tides, including a shutout versus Worcester on June 13. He allowed three runs, 14 hits and three walks while striking out 11 innings across 15 innings during his most recent stint in the minors. For now, it appears he'll be a fresh bullpen arm for the Orioles. He has a 7.20 ERA and 6:0 K:BB over five innings across two major-league appearances. Logan Gillaspie was optioned out in a corresponding move.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Optioned to Triple-A

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Called up Friday

    Zimmermann was called up from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Cordell Woodland of 105.7 The Fan Baltimore reports.

    Zimmermann will head to the big leagues for the first time this season after opening the 2023 campaign in Triple-A. The left-hander has produced a 4.05 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with 50 punchouts over 46.2 innings in nine starts with Norfolk this season. Zimmermann will take the spot of Mychal Givens, who was placed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation. It's unclear whether Zimmermann will operate as a bullpen arm or get a chance to bump Austin Voth from the Orioles rotation.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Moves past thumb injury

    Zimmermann (thumb) tossed five innings and struck out five while allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks in his most recent start for Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

    Zimmermann ended up missing just one turn through the rotation on account of the right thumb injury he suffered in his season debut April 1. The southpaw possesses a spot on Baltimore's 40-man roster and could be a candidate to make spot starts for the big club as the season unfolds.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Managing thumb issue

    Zimmermann will miss a turn through Triple-A Norfolk's starting rotation after he received stitches on his right thumb Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    The laceration and stitches are on his non-throwing hand, so the left-hander may not require a trip to the injured list. Zimmermann has made one appearance for Norfolk this year and allowed two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts and a walk over 4.2 innings.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Sent down to Triple-A

    Zimmermann was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk by the Orioles on Monday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

    Zimmermann has been competing for a spot in the Orioles' rotation but always seemed to be on the periphery. The left-hander does figure to make some starts with the big club this season but for now will head to Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Starting Monday

    Zimmermann will start Monday's game versus the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Zimmermann struggled last season with a 5.99 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 73.2 innings. He made 13 of his 15 appearances as a starter, but time is running out for the southpaw to establish himself as a viable part of the rotation. He'll need a strong spring to begin the year as a starter, especially with top prospect Grayson Rodriguez looking to make the jump to the majors. It's still possible Zimmermann opens the year in the bullpen or at Triple-A Norfolk if he doesn't show improvement from 2022's poor numbers.

  • Orioles' Bruce Zimmermann: Rejoins big club

    The Orioles recalled Zimmermann from Triple-A Norfolk ahead of the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays.

    Zimmermann made 13 of his previous 14 appearances with the Orioles this season as a starter, but he'll be rejoining the big club as a long reliever. He'll step in as a multi-inning option in place of Beau Sulser, who was optioned to Triple-A following the Orioles' 7-3 loss in Game 1.
