Ryan Zimmerman (oblique) won't return this year.
Zimmerman is making steady progress from his strained left oblique, but there's no reason for the mathematically-eliminated Nationals to rush him back with just two series remaining on their regular season schedule.

The initial thought was that Zimmerman was still battling plantar fasciitis, but manager Matt Williams revealed the true reason for Zimmerman's absence on Tuesday evening.

Ryan Zimmerman was scratched from the Nationals' lineup Sunday because of a sore left foot.

That's the same foot that has been bothered by plantar fasciitis for much of the 2015 season. "Foot’s a little sore," manager Matt Williams explained after Sunday's defeat of the Braves. "It’s one of those things. We can't get him over that threshold to where it just won't go away." Zimmerman had been scorching hot at the plate, with seven home runs and 25 RBI in his last 13 games. Consider him day-to-day.
