Nats Journal: Jordan Zimmermann says meeting with Nationals went ‘well’ but a ‘lot of talking’ to go before extension

While negotiations with stars such as Ian Desmond or Doug Fister have been sporadic at best, the Nationals established last week that they were willing and eager to talk about an extension for Jordan Zimmermann. The two sides met last week, their first committed negotiations since last winter, but no deal was reached in a week that yielded a few Zimmermann-centric trade rumors. No further progress has been reported.Read full article >>

What would a Jordan Zimmermann trade cost the Red Sox?

The Red Sox need an ace. The Nationals are trying to trade theirs. That doesn't make this as simple as it should be. The Nationals are dangling their ace and soon-to-be free agent Jordan Zimmermann, and one of the teams he's been dangled in front of is the Red Sox. It's a fit that, on the surface, makes sense for both sides: the Sox have lots of young talent the Nationals would like to have for themselves, and the Red Sox have a need for an ace. What's unclear, though, is what the Nationals would want in return for Zimmermann on a more specific level: what would the Red Sox actually need to...

Sox And Nats Have Talked Jordan Zimmermann

(USATSI)According to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox and Washington Nationals have discussed a trade for Jordan Zimmermann that would bring the 28-year old ace to Boston. It's unclear what kind of prospect-based return Washington would require, but Zimmermann's $16.5 million salary for 2015 (and his impending free agency in 2016) would likely keep the quality of the package down somewhat. Zimmermann is one of the best young starters in baseball—with the 10th best SP WAR over the last three seasons. Last year, Zimmermann was 14-5 with a 2.66 ERA in 32 starts—including a...

Red Sox, Nationals have talked Jordan Zimmermann trade

The Red Sox have been in contact with the Nationals about a trade for star pitcher Jordan Zimmermann. But, as with Cole Hamels, the price appears prohibitive for now. The Red Sox have already added three pitchers to their rotation in the past week, but that hasn't stopped them from discussing a trade with the Nationals for front-line starter Jordan Zimmermann. Per Ken Rosenthal: One of the many ideas the Nats proposed was Zimmermann and [Ian] Desmond for right-hander Taijuan Walker and shortstop Brad Miller, sources said. The Mariners balked, unwilling to absorb $27.5 million in salary...

Boswell: Thomas Boswell: In MLB, teams that hesitate with pending free agents often lose

For years my view on huge contract extensions in baseball has been: Make up your mind early, even if you are sometimes wrong; if you wait, you’ll always pay more and you’ll be wrong just as often. “Let’s wait and see how it plays out,” is a decision in itself in the baseball world. Often a big one. Now, the Nationals are seeing the consequences of waiting on Ian Desmond and Jordan Zimmermann. Read full article >>
