Jordan Zimmermann admitted Friday it's unlikely he and the Nationals will strike a deal on a new contract before his Opening Day deadline.

VIERA, Fla. — When Jordan Zimmermann reported for spring training nearly six weeks ago and said he wouldn’t hold any contract negotiations during the regular season, the right-hander essentially created a deadline for any talks with the Nationals to take place.

DC Sports Bog: Nationals pitching coach Steve McCatty says numbering pitchers in the rotation is overrated

The Nationals will enter the season with the best rotation in baseball. The offseason addition of Max Scherzer to a staff that already included Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez means that Tanner Roark — he of the 15 wins, 1.09 WHIP and 2.85 ERA in 2014 — will likely open the season in the bullpen.Read full article >>
