He's had a rough year for the Nats, hitting just .222 over 302 at-bats while battling a slew of injuries.

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.
