LAKELAND, Fla. — Jordan Zimmermann was on the mound on Thursday morning, pitching his first official bullpen, and he felt as good as he’s ever felt in spring training for the Detroit Tigers.
He spent the entire offseason healthy for the first time since he signed with the Tigers in 2016. He was able to train instead of rehab.
“I finally had a normal offseason where I didn’t have surgeries or injections or anything like that,” Zimmermann said. “I was able to get my normal work, my normal training. If you are injured, you have to rehab and you can’t lift as heavy as you would like to lift, or do the things you want to do.
