Zimmer named Carolina League pitcher of the week
By Don Voltz

He's no longer in the Carolina League, but former Blue Rocks pitcher Kyle Zimmer has been named the Carolina League pitcher of the week.

The Kansas City Royal's 2012 first round draft pick went 2-0 last week with a 1.64 ERA over 11 innings pitched, striking out 23.

Following his Sunday victory, Zimmer was promoted to Double A.

Zimmer's record wasn't great in Wilmington at 4-8, but opposing batters hit just .237 against him and he left leading the league in strikeouts with 113.
