Ryan Zimmerman crushed a key three-run homer against the Marlins on Wednesday.
His fourth inning blast off Tom Koehler was the major blow of the game. Zimmerman helping his team win is a rare event these days. He is having a brutal season at the dish as evidenced by his .216 batting average with 15 home runs and 45 RBI. His days as an early-round fantasy draft pick are long gone. After missing large chunks of time to injury the last few years he finally stayed on the field for the bulk of this season but simply wasn't able to produce good stats for his owners.

The home run came in the second inning to produce the first of his team's 11 runs in the slugfest. He ended up with two RBI and two runs scored. He is in the midst of a disappointing season, batting .229 with 13 homers and 40 RBI in 340 plate appearances.

Nationals activated 1B Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

Zimmerman has been rehabbing his injured wrist at Triple-A Syracuse in recent days and feels he's ready to return. The 31-year-old is hitting just .222/.284/.394 with 12 homers and 38 RBI in 302 at-bats in what has been another injury-plagued season.

Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

He was originally slated to come off the DL Friday, but after a day of travel the Nats decided to push him back a day. Jose Lobaton (elbow) will also be activated on Saturday instead.
Aug 19 - 5:37 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) has a locker at the visiting clubhouse in Atlanta.

So does Jose Lobaton (elbow). Both have been rehabbing at Triple-A Syracuse in recent days. Neither is with the team right now but obviously the Nationals expect Zimmerman and Lobaton to return at some point this weekend. Zimmerman has missed the last two weeks with a bruised wrist. He's had a rough year for the Nats, hitting just .222 over 302 at-bats while battling a slew of injuries.
Aug 18 - 4:31 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk, and two RBI Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Syracuse.

Zimmerman, who has been out since taking a pitch off his left wrist on July 31, served as the DH in his return to action. He should be ready to rejoin the Nationals in the next couple of days. The 31-year-old was batting just .222/.284/.394 with 12 homers over 80 games prior to landing on the DL.

Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Syracuse.

Aug 15 - 4:39 PM

Nationals placed 1B Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 1, with a left wrist contusion.

The Nats had hoped that Zimmerman would be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, but it seemed more prudent to use the roster spot elsewhere at this point. Zimmerman's X-rays came back negative and he should be ready to return in mid-August after a minimum stint on the shelf. Clint Robinson will continue to see most of the starts at first base in his absence.
Aug 6 - 3:00 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Friday.

Aug 2 - 6:07 PM
