AL Central Notes: Zimmermann's return, Buxton call up

The latest from around the American League Central.

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Washington Nationals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann is looking ready to make his return from a groin injury, and that includes making his start on Friday against the White Sox. Zimmermann did some fielding drills on Monday, and will throw another bullpen session on Tuesday.

Zimmerman has been great for the Tigers, having a 7-2 record with a 2.52 ERA. Upon his return, the Tigers are going to need to make a decision, as they have six starters on the roster right now. The rest of the week will see Anibal Sanchez, Michael Fulmer and Matt Boyd pitcher, but when Zimmermann does return, they will go back to a normal rotation.
