Initially, I was a little skeptical regarding the Detroit Tigers’ signing of free-agent starter Jordan Zimmermann. As I step back and take a longer look at the move, it is beginning to make more sense. While signing a free-agent pitcher about to enter his thirties does come with some risk, Zimmermann is a good fit for the Tigers and what they are trying to accomplish. With Mike Ilitich calling the shots from the owner’s box, there was never going to be a full rebuild in Detroit. The Tigers do have some good pieces in place, and should be able to make a run at the Wild Card next season.
Though I did not love the deal initially, the dust has settled, and it looks a little better. Here are the five reasons fans of the Tigers should be loving the Jordan Zimmermann signing.
