Bob Zimmerman Report

Bob Zimmerman, RHP, Anaheim Angels
Drafted 120th Overall (4th Rd), 2003 Draft, Southwest Missouri State
Bats R/Throws R
23 YO, 6'1", 190 lbs

Zimmerman is a reliever prospect with good stuff and great stats. He mostly works with a mid 90's fastball, which he used to post a 2.26 ERA with 82 strikeouts, 21 walks, 48 hits, and 3 home runs allowed in 68 innings. He was mostly used as a closer, he finished the game for his team 50 times in 53 appearences. Statistically, he's looking great, but I'd like to see him advance more quickly. I would have promoted him out of the Midwest League midseason. He wasn't a whole lot older than his opponents (he turned 23 in the offseason) but generally speaking, 22 year olds should play well in Low A ball. I really want to see him make the jump to AA before I give him two thumbs up.
