Ryan Zimmerman victimized R.A. Dickey for a pair of home runs as the Nationals doubled up the Braves 10-5 on Tuesday night in Washington.

Score another for the BvP truthers out there, as Zimmerman entered play on Tuesday 12-for-36 with four extra-base hits and just three strikeouts in his career against the veteran knuckleballer. He crushed a solo homer in the first inning then added on a two-run shot in the sixth. He finished the night 3-for-4 and scored three runs. The 32-year-old is enjoying an MVP-caliber season, slashing .372/.415/.726 with 19 homers and 52 RBI.

Ryan Zimmerman (back) is back in the Nationals' lineup Tuesday.

Zimmerman missed three games with a stiff back, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go Tuesday. He's at third base and hitting cleanup against R.A. Dickey and the Braves. Daily Slant: Zimmerman's GPP ownership isn't likely to be all that high considering he's fresh off an injury, but he's actually hit R.A. Dickey very well over his career and BvP data tends to be a bit more reliable with knuckleballers. Zimmerman is 12-36 with four XBHs and just three strikeouts against Dickey, and on top of that he's sitting on a .447 wOBA, .301 ISO and 178 wRC+ against RHP on the season. He's one of the premier GPP plays at the 1B spot.

Ryan Zimmerman (back) is out of the Nationals' lineup again on Monday against the Braves.

It'll be the third straight absence for Zimmerman, who's been bothered by a stiff back. Adam Lind is starting at first base and batting fifth Monday night against Atlanta right-hander Mike Foltynewicz. Nationals manager Dusty Baker said he expects Zimmerman to be ready on Tuesday.

Ryan Zimmerman (back) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

Zimmerman has now started just one out of the last four games due to a stiff back. He remains day-to-day. Adam Lind is filling in again at first base. The Nats are also giving Trea Turner a breather, as Stephen Drew is getting a start at shortstop and Brian Goodwin is leading off.

Ryan Zimmerman is out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Saturday against the Rangers.

Adam Lind is starting at first base and batting fifth versus Rangers left-hander Martin Perez. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Zimmerman, who went 2-for-4 with a double on Friday night and is slashing .365/.409/.697 in 57 games this season.
Jun 10 - 11:06 AM

Ryan Zimmerman is getting the night off Thursday against the Orioles.

Zimmerman slugged his 17th home run of the season Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. Anthony Rendon and Daniel Murphy are also sitting out Thursday's makeup game back at Nationals Park. Adam Lind will start for Zimmerman at first base. Daily Slant: The Nationals aren't quite as appealing in terms of total team outlook with a few regulars sitting, but it does give us an opportunity to roster some value bats in the middle of the order. Alec Asher hasn't really been blown up yet, but he's been a little lucky with a .257 BABIP considering his batted ball data. It's also worth noting that he's shown some reverse split tendencies so far this year. Despite that, Adam Lind is still squarely in play out of the clean-up spot, with Matt Wieters, Stephen Drew, Wilmer Difo and Michael Taylor all becoming viable value plays.
Jun 8 - 3:40 PM

Ryan Zimmerman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Zimmerman cranked a solo home run off Clayton Kershaw in the second inning for his lone hit of the game. The dinger was his 17th of the season and bumped his RBI total to an impressive 49. In addition, the veteran first baseman is working to a smashing .362/.407/.696 triple-slash over the course of 56 games played.
Jun 7 - 6:12 PM

Ryan Zimmerman was hitless in four at-bats in Tuesday's game at the Dodgers.

Zimmerman's hitless game was his first since May 25, snapping a nine-game hitting streak. He has had a tremendous season for the Nats and his fantasy owners, and his .365 average is actually tied for his lowest mark since April 18. He continues to pile up hits in bunches, and he has always been a productive player when healthy.
