Zimmerman contract rejected by MLB 

MLB has rejected the minor league contract Jeff Zimmerman signed with the Rangers.

This wasn't unexpected...since the Rangers didn't offer him arbitration, they aren't supposed to be able to re-sign him until May 1. At this point, they will simply get the other 29 teams to agree that they have no objection to him returning to Texas, and the contract should be approved.

This is a couple of days old, but I'm just now getting around to posting it...mainly because I think Zimmerman, who had T-J surgery again last year and likely won't be able to pitch until the middle of the season, is about as likely to contribute to the team as Justin Thompson.
