FORMER NATS HURLER JORDAN ZIMMERMANN HANGS ‘EM UP

By Melody Miller

Former Nats and current Brewers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, who will turn 35 on May 23, has retired after 13 seasons in the major leagues.

He was with the Nats from 2009-15, the Tigers from 2016-20 and Milwaukee this season.

During his time with Washington, he was a two-time All-Star (2013-14) and threw the first no-hitter in team history (2014).

“I will forever be thankful to the Washington Nationals and Detroit Tigers for allowing me to live out this dream,” Zimmermann said in a statement. “It has been particularly special to be able to end it all playing for my hometown team, the Milwaukee Brewers.”

He finished his career with a 95-91 record accompanied by a 4.07 ERA in 279 career games, including 275 starts.

“I will miss the game greatly, but I’m ready for the new phase of my life,” Zimmermann added.
