​Jordan Zimmerman, Detroit Tigers

Jordan Zimmermann staking claim for an ERA title might seem like an especially odd early-season fluke, but the fact of the matter is the 10th-year veteran has looked quite sharp in the early part of 2019. The Detroit Tigers' hurler is flashing the best reach rates on his curveball and slider that he's seen in years, all while maintaining the pinpoint control that once made him a fantasy mainstay despite his lack of strikeout upside.

Even skeptics will have a hard time getting away from Zimmerman this week as the 32-year-old looks to pile on the Indians (the weakest offense in the American League to start the season) before taking his second turn against the pesky but beatable Twins.
