Team: Washington Nationals
Position: Starting Pitcher
While Bryce Harper garners most of the media attention, the strength of the NL East-leading Nationals lies in their pitching staff. Flamethrower Stephen Strasburg is the focus in the media, but Zimmermann leads the rotation with a 2.48 ERA. He doesn't strike out as many batters as Strasburg (80 to 135) and he doesn't have as many wins (10 to 6) but Zimmermann provides the Nationals with three top of the line starters. Zimmermann, Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez could lead them deep into October. The Nationals in the playoffs might be more proof of that whole 2012 apocalypse theory. #justsayin'
