Joel Sherman of the New York Post is hearing that, contrary to speculation following the signing of Max Scherzer to a seven-year deal, the Nationals plan to keep Jordan Zimmermann in their “super rotation” in an attempt to go all-in for the 2015 season.

Zimmermann, 28, will earn $16.5 million in the last year of a two-year deal signed last year to avoid arbitration. He can become a free agent after the season. The right-hander has been one of the game’s best starting pitchers since becoming a regular part of the Nationals’ rotation in 2011, owning a combined 3.00 ERA in 770 innings, the 10th-best mark among qualified major league starters.
