 Biographical Information
Zimmermann made his major league debut with the Washington Nationals on April 20, 2009, beating the Braves with a solid pitching performance in which he gave up 2 runs on 6 hits and a walk in six innings. He was a teammate of Ryan Zimmerman - no relation - on that team. He made only 16 starts for the Nationals in his debut season, going 3-5, 4.63, but showing some excellent stuff in striking out 92 batters - against only 29 walks - in 91.1 innings.
In July of 2012, Jordan became the third Nationals' pitcher to win Pitcher of the Month honors in the National League, following teammates Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez. He went 4-0 with an 0.97 ERA, issuing just for walks during the entire month. His record at the end of July stood at 8-6, 2.28. His strong performance helped the Nationals maintain their hold on 1st place in the NL East heading into the season's home stretch.
On April 26, 2013, he threw his first career shutout, and it was a beauty, a one-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in which he needed only 91 pitches to win, 1-0. The only blemish that day was a single by Xavier Paul to lead off the 3rd inning. That game followed a combined one-hitter by Gio Gonzalez and Rafael Soriano a day earlier and gave the Nationals a record over .500 for the first time since the season's first week. On May 13th, he became the first major league pitcher to notch seven wins that year, when he defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers, 7-2. He pitched 7 2/3 innings and drove in three runs himself in a typical strong performance.
