Zimmermann (7-1) allowed nine hits and two runs in 7 23 innings, struck out five and walked none.

There was no immediate update on his condition before the game ended. He was playing just his second game after missing two wi...

Beckett, Blanton belong on bench

Start 'Em Dan Haren (@LAD, @SD) His figures (5.17 ERA and 1.49 WHIP) don't convey a pitcher who merits starter status, but aside from his season opener versus Cincinnati (four innings, nine hits, six earned runs) and his latest outing against Detroit (six innings, nine hits, four runs), Haren has a more manageable 3.81 ERA in his five other appearances. Taking on the...
