Zimmer Excited to Join Blue Jays ‘Contagious’ Offense, Winning Culture

After five seasons in Cleveland, Bradley Zimmer said it was a “shock” to find out he’d been traded to the Blue Jays.

“It was definitely bittersweet,” the outfielder said outside his new locker at the Rogers Center clubhouse.

On Thursday, before the Guardians’ season opener, Zimmer was called into a meeting with manager Terry Francona, who passed along the news. Just like that, Zimmer — Cleveland’s first-round pick in 2014 — was gone from the only organization he’d ever known, swapped in a deal for right-hander Anthony Castro.
