I thought Zimmerman might be up there with Price and Leake as far as "good fits" for the G-men. Then I saw the FB splits below from @RushingBaseball and now I don't feel too bad about losing out.
Not enough room on the payroll for a Cain 2.0, even if a younger version.
Check out what I just read on the Trade Rumors iOS app!
11:20am: Zimmermann's deal is expected to be a five-year pact worth roughly $110MM, according to sources who spoke with Jon Morosi of FOX Sports (on Twitter).
10:52am: The Tigers and Jordan Zimmermann have reached agreement on a deal, per Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter). Zimmermann rejected a qualifying offer from the Nationals, so the Tigers will have to sacrifice a draft pick in order to sign him. The Tigers select ninth overall – a protected pick – so they would surrender their second pick. The deal is pending a physical.
