In 2015, he knocked 16 homers, drove in 63 runs and swiped 44 bags, all personal bests to this point. "It's a feeling that is hard to put into words". In 126 at-bats at Columbus, Zimmer was hitting.294 with a.532 slugging percentage and.902 OPS. He will bat ninth in Cleveland's lineup and start in center field. In his debut Tuesday night, Zimmer was 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. Right-hander Carlos Carrasco was removed from Monday's game because of a strained left pectoral muscle and will have his next start pushed back to May 23 in Cincinnati.

Zimmer's promotion comes on the heels of two outfield injuries for the Tribe, who lost Brandon Guyer for 4-6 weeks due to a wrist injury and Abraham Almonte for the near future due to a biceps issue.
