MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jordan Zimmermann believes he’s finally healthy again as the former All-Star pitcher attempts to revive his career with the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Brewers have signed the right-hander to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to major league camp. Zimmermann pitched in just three games for the Detroit Tigers last season due to a forearm injury after going 1-13 with a 6.91 ERA in 2019. He turns 35 on May 23.
