He threw the first no-hitter in Nationals' history in 2014. Zimmermann was a key part of Washington's rotation when the Nationals won NL East titles in 2012 and 2014.
He finished seventh in the Cy Young Award balloting in 2013 and fifth in 2014.
Zimmermann made two relief appearances for the Brewers this season. He previously played for the Detroit Tigers.
