Jordan Zimmerman To Miss Tonight’s Start (Flu Symptoms)


Washington Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann will miss Thursday’s game against the New York Mets because of flu-like symptoms, the team announced.

“He’s running a fever. He was up all night throwing up,” manager Matt Williams said. “Evidently he’s feeling pretty under the weather.”

It was to be Zimmermann’s first start of the season after a stellar spring training in which he allowed one run on 11 hits and a walk in 18 innings. He also struck out 15 batters during Grapefruit League action.
