Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Enters spring healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman declared himself fully healthy Monday and said he won't face any restrictions during spring training, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The 35-year-old spent two extended stints on the injured list last season on account of plantar fasciitis, but he was able to make it back to action in September, playing a limited role for the Nationals as the team claimed its first World Series title. After having his pricey player option declined in the offseason, Zimmerman re-upped with Washington on a one-year, $2 million deal, an affordable contract that should allow him to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster as a backup first baseman. The right-handed-hitting Zimmerman will likely fill the short side of a platoon at the position with Eric Thames.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Re-ups with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Nationals on Friday, Barry Svrluga of The Washington Post reports.

The Nationals have added some talent at first base over the offseason, signing Eric Thames to a one-year, $4 million deal and making Zimmerman's path to playing time more difficult. The veteran slashed .257/.321/.415 with six home runs and 27 RBI over 52 contests a season ago with Washington and figures to share time at first base in 2020.

Ryan Zimmerman: Nats decline 2020 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals are declining Zimmerman's $18 million club option for 2020, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Zimmerman performed well enough in the playoffs with a .255/.317/.418 slash line in 16 games, but he was limited to 52 games in the regular season, so it's no real surprise to see the Nationals willing to fork out $2 million for the buyout. The 35-year-old spent the first 15 years of his career in Washington, and the team is unsurprisingly interested in bringing him back at a reduced figure.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

Zimmerman started Saturday's game, but as has been the case regularly the last week, Howie Kendrick will get the start at first base in Sunday's series finale.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Out again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins, according to Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports.

Zimmerman hit three homers over the first 11 days of September, but he has started just three games since, and will cede the starting first base duties to Howie Kendrick on Friday for the fourth time in five games.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Benched again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Matt Adams' shoulder injury has afforded Zimmerman more work at first base lately, but the 34-year-old hasn't been able to take advantage. Since being reinstated from the injured list at the beginning of the month, Zimmerman is batting only .219 in 10 games. The hot-hitting Howie Kendrick will log a second straight start at first base in place of Zimmerman while the Nationals aim to put out their best lineup and solidify their standing in the NL wild-card race.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Set for night off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

Zimmerman has been scuffling at the plate over his last three contests (0-for-8), likely resulting in the day off. Howie Kendrick draws the start at first base and is set to bat fifth.

September 15, 2019 10:20 AM
Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Zimmerman went 0-for-5 with a walk while starting the first two games of the series and will head to the bench for the finale. Howie Kendrick enters the lineup at first base and will bat fifth Sunday.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Heads to bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is not in Thursday's lineup against the Twins.

Even with the designated hitter spot at their disposal, Zimmerman will head to the bench with Matt Adams starting at first base and Howie Kendrick starting at DH. Zimmerman is hitting .292 with three home runs in 24 at-bats since coming off the injured list on Sept. 1.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Collects three RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Twins.

Zimmerman came through with an RBI single during the first inning and then again during the third with a 397-foot, two-run shot to left field. The veteran slugger is 7-for-24 with one double, three home runs and 10 RBI in seven games since rejoining the Nationals at the start of September.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Zimmerman produced all three runs in Saturday's loss with a three-run homer, but he'll nonetheless head to the bench for the series finale. Matt Adams will start at first base and bat sixth in his place.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Carries offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Friday's 4-3 loss to Atlanta.

His eighth-inning blast off Luke Jackson brought the Nats to within a run, but it was the only offense the club could generate on the night. Zimmerman has gone yard twice in three starts since rejoining the lineup in September, but injuries have once again sabotaged his season -- the 34-year-old has a .252/.315/.435 slash line with five homers and 22 RBI in only 37 games.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is not in the lineup Thursday against the Braves.

Zimmerman has started two of four games since returning from the injured list at the beginning of the month, going 3-for-9 with a home run and four RBI in those contests. He'll sit in favor of Howie Kendrick on Thursday.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (foot) went 1-for-3 with a home run, walk and two RBI in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Marlins.

Reinstated from the injured list earlier in the day as part of the Nationals' first wave of September callups, Zimmerman wasted no time making an impact. While the veteran looks to be over the foot injury that kept him on the shelf for nearly six weeks, he's expected to be in line for a short-side platoon role at first base over the season's final month. He'll retreat to the bench for Monday's game against the Mets with Matt Adams picking up the start at first base.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Starting in return from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (foot) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday and will start at first base and bat sixth against the Marlins.

Zimmerman completed an eight-game rehab stint earlier this week to clear the way for his return to the majors after missing the last six weeks due to plantar fasciitis. The 34-year-old has struggled with a .246/.311/.390 slash line in 33 games this season and won't be asked to play a full-time role in September. According to Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports, manager Dave Martinez said he expects Zimmerman to start against left-handed pitching and serve as a late-inning defensive replacement for Matt Adams, who should retain the large side of a platoon at first base.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Likely returning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (foot) is expected to be activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Zimmerman completed an eight-game rehab assignment earlier this week and will work out at the team's facility Friday and Saturday before being activated when rosters expand Sunday. The 34-year-old has been limited to 33 games this season and has a .246/.311/.390 slash line with three home runs in 132 plate appearances.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Could return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (foot) could return from the injured list ahead of Friday's series opener against the Marlins, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

Zimmerman has been sidelined since mid-July due to plantar fasciitis, but he's appeared in seven rehab games over the past two weeks and appears to be on the cusp of a return. The veteran first baseman is slated to play nine innings with High-A Potomac on Wednesday, and if he checks out OK during a scheduled off day Thursday, it sounds like he'll rejoin the Nationals over the weekend.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Appears close to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (foot) is nearing a return from the 10-day injured list, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

Zimmerman had two hits and a walk with High-A Potomac on Sunday and is now 6-for-16 (.375 average) with three RBI and five walks in six rehab games between High-A and Double-A. Kerr's report suggests "one scenario" has Zimmerman being activated as soon as Tuesday for the start of a two-game set with the Orioles to kick off the Nationals' homestand. If not Tuesday, Zimmerman should be back later this week after another battle with plantar fasciitis, and chances are he will be the primary option at first base again upon his return.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Beginning rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Manager Dave Martinez said last week that Zimmerman would be activated "soon," but the tail end of his recovery apparently didn't move as quickly as expected. The 34-year-old has been sidelined due to plantar fasciitis since July 21 and should be ready to rejoin the Nationals after a handful of games in the minors.

August 10, 2019 09:24 AM
Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: To be activated soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman (foot) is going to be activated "soon" according to manager Dave Martinez, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

He is running at 75-80 percent, and has been hitting and taking groundballs. Once Zimmerman can run without restrictions, he will either head out on a brief rehab assignment or just join the big-league club right away.
