Long-Term Extension for Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann Still in the Works

Jordan Zimmermann, who just completed his first full, non-innings-limit-shortened, season with the Washington Nationals since undergoing Tommy John surgery is looking to get a long-term extension in place.  First, though, he wants to resolve his upcoming arbitration without the hearing preferably.

Amanda Comak of the Washington Times says negotiations between the team and Zimmermann are ongoing.  Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington says Zimmermann is first looking to get arbitration taken care of.

Zimmermann underwent Tommy John surgery in 2009.  He missed the entire 2010 season and made his return in 2011.  Although he was back, the Nationals put an innings-limited on Zimmermann much like they did with Stephen Strasburg this past season.  However, in 2012, Zimmermann was free to pitch and her performed nicely.

In 2012, Zimmermann went 12-8 with a 2.94 ERA.  He pitched 195 2/3 innings - the most of his career.  Throughout his career, Zimmermann owns a 24-26 record with a 3.47 ERA.
