Jordan Zimmermann (biceps) is scheduled to start for the Nationals on Tuesday in Colorado.

Jul 18 - 3:51 PM

Jordan Zimmermann (biceps) will throw a bullpen session on Friday or Saturday.

Assuming he gets through it with no issues, Zimmermann will avoid the disabled list and be cleared to rejoin the Nationals' rotation next week. The right-hander had to leave his last outing prior to the All-Star break with a strained biceps, but obviously the ailment is considered minor. He's put up a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP this season.
Jul 18 - 11:36 AM

An MRI taken Saturday morning on the right arm of Jordan Zimmermann showed a biceps strain.

The good news is Zimmermann has no structural damage and might be able to avoid a disabled list stint (with the help of the All-Star break). The right-hander left his start Friday night against the Phillies with what was initially labeled a biceps cramp. He wraps up the first half of the season with a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP.
Jul 12 - 11:47 PM

Nationals manager Matt Williams said after Friday's game that Jordan Zimmermann was removed with a right bicep cramp.

The right-hander will undergo a precautionary MRI on Saturday to rule out any structural damage. For the moment, it's encouraging that the injury doesn't have anything to do with his elbow or shoulder. Unfortunately, he will now be forced to miss the All-Star Game for the second consecutive season due to injury.
Jul 11 - 10:12 PM

Jordan Zimmermann was removed from Friday's start against the Phillies with an apparent injury.

No word yet on the type or extent of the injury, but it's certainly worrisome that Zimmermann called for the trainer after delivering his last pitch. He had surrendered four runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings before departing. Look for the Nationals to provide an update on his status shortly.
Jul 11 - 8:19 PM

He's having another good season for the Nats, as he owns a 2.79 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 96/20 K/BB ratio over 109 2/3 innings. He'll face the Phillies in Philadelphia on Friday.
