MLB The Show 19 Weekly Challenge: Jordan Zimmermann vs. Aaron Judge

Week 2 of the MLB The Show 19 weekly challenge is a good one. Red hot Detroit Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann takes on New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge. So far, the Tigers are off to a great start in 2019 and Zimmermann is a big reason why.

MLB The Show 19 Weekly Challenge Zimmermann regaining form

The Detroit Tigers spent a lot of money when they signed Jordan Zimmermann back in 2015. While he hasn’t been as dominate as they had hoped, he has started the 2019 season with a vengeance. With an ERA and WHIP well under 1.00, Zimmermann looks like his old self.

In 13.2 innings pitched so far in 2019, Zimmermann has recorded 10 strikeouts and has an ERA of 0.66. He will be a crucial piece of the puzzle if the Tigers are to compete for the AL Central this season.

Now the question is can Aaron Judge rough him up in the latest MLB The Show 19 weekly challenge?

Judge and the Yankees don’t look very “New York like” so far in 2019, but we have only scratched the surface of the new season. Any MLB lineup that has Aaron Judge in it is bound to bust out sooner or later.
