Nationals manager Matt Williams said the MRI results for Ryan Zimmerman showed a "pretty substantial" hamstring strain.
Well, that's not good. Zimmerman was placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game, and it doesn't appear he's anywhere close to returning to the club at this point. Anthony Rendon will get the majority of the starts at third base with Zimmerman sidelined. Jul 23 - 6:59 PM

Nationals placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

The Nationals are still awaiting MRI results before they determine how long the third baseman will be sidelined, but it's worth noting that Zimmerman admitting to feeling worse Wednesday than when he suffered the injury Tuesday. He could be looking at an extended stay on the DL. Anthony Rendon will handle third base and Danny Espinosa will be at second while Zimmerman is on the shelf. Zach Walters has replaced Zimmerman on the roster.

Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

Zimmerman left Tuesday's game against the Rockies with a strained right hamstring. The Nationals are still awaiting MRI results before they determine how long the third baseman will be sidelined, but obviously they expect him to miss at least a couple weeks. Anthony Rendon will handle third base and Danny Espinosa will be at second while Zimmerman is on the shelf. Zach Walters is replacing Zimmerman on the roster.

Ryan Zimmerman will undergo an MRI after leaving Tuesday's game against the Rockies with a strained right hamstring.

It's looking like Zimmerman is headed to the disabled list, but the Nationals won't know for sure until the test results come back. It would be his second trip to the DL this season, as he missed nearly two months with a fractured thumb. The Nats would go back to Anthony Rendon at third base and Danny Espinosa at second if Zimmerman is on the shelf for a while.
Jul 23 - 12:33 AM

Ryan Zimmerman hit a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the 10th Saturday in a 5-3 win over the Phillies.

It was the only hit of the game for Zimmerman, but it was obviously a big one. He's batting .272/.342/.428 with 28 RBI in 47 games this season for the Nationals, who are tied with the Braves atop the National League East.
Jul 12 - 11:25 PM

Ryan Zimmerman finished 4-for-5 with three RBI to help the Nationals beat the Cubs on Saturday.

The Cubs looked like a deflated team in the wake of the Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel trade. Washington scored one run in the second inning, six in the third, two in the sixth, and four in the seventh for the club's most lopsided victory of the 2014 season. Zimmerman had two doubles and two singles.
Jul 5 - 7:37 PM

Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored versus the Rockies on Monday.

Zimmerman had a nice offensive and defensive game in his return to third base. He'll be testing his troublesome right shoulder a lot more now than Bryce Harper is back hogging left field.
Jun 30 - 10:56 PM

Ryan Zimmerman is back at third base for the Nationals on Monday night against the Rockies.

Bryce Harper (thumb) was activated from the disabled list on Monday afternoon and will return to left field, with Zimmerman shifting back to the hot corner. The Nats will hope that Zimmerman's shoulder issues don't return at the more-demanding defensive position.
Jun 30 - 3:09 PM

Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-7 and hit the game-winning two-run home run in the 16th inning as the Nationals outlasted the Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday.

Zimmerman had a pair of hits in six at-bats prior to the two-run shot in the 16th. It was a much-needed confidence boost for the 29-year-old, who was batting just .184/.250/.263 since returning from the disabled list on June 3. It's been a struggle, but Zimmerman should get it going any day now. Maybe Tuesday was that day.
Jun 25 - 1:50 AM

Ryan Zimmerman went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Zimmerman was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in his first game back from the disabled list, but he's hitting just .153 (6-for-39) with two doubles and nine strikeouts since. The 29-year-old has exclusively played third base since returning from his fractured thumb, but he's expected to move back to third base when Bryce Harper (thumb) is ready.
Jun 13 - 10:58 PM

Ryan Zimmerman went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Tuesday's win against the Phillies.

The Nationals activated Zimmerman from the disabled list hours before the start of Tuesday's game and inserted him into the #5 spot in the lineup, starting in left field. Zimmerman won't start every game in left field going forward; he'll also split time between first and third base as well. Zimmerman is slashing .378/.415/.676 in 41 plate appearances this season.
Jun 3 - 9:55 PM

Nationals activated 3B Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

Zimmerman went 5-for-14 (.357) with a double and three RBI over four rehab games with High-A Potomac, but most importantly, he got his first exposure to left field. The Nationals aren't wasting any time, as he'll make his first major league start in left field on Tuesday night. He also figures to shuffle between first base and third base moving forward.
Jun 3 - 2:24 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Zimmerman had a pair of hits in his final rehab game at High-A Potomac Monday, clearing the way for him to return to the Nationals' lineup. He played left field in two of his four games and is expected to be used there, in addition to third and some first base, once activated.
Jun 2 - 11:35 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (thumb) will play left field again Monday in his latest rehab game with High-A Potomac.

Zimmerman made his pro debut in left field on Saturday and played seven innings at the position on Sunday. The plan calls for him to play a full nine innings there Monday. If all goes well, there's a chance he could be activated Tuesday. It's unclear how often the Nationals will play him in left field when he returns, but they are looking for ways to take the stress off his right shoulder while keeping Anthony Rendon at third base.
Jun 2 - 4:11 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (thumb) will play five innings in left field for High-A Potomac on Saturday.

Zimmerman went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly as the DH for Potomac on Friday. With Bryce Harper on the disabled list for another month, the Nationals appear to be willing to move Zimmerman from his home at third base in order to keep Anthony Rendon at third base and Danny Espinosa at second base.
