Bradley Zimmer was scratched from the Indians' Cactus League lineup Monday due to a mild left groin strain.
This injury obviously comes with bad timing given that Opening Day is just 10 days away, but perhaps it truly is nothing serious. Tyler Naquin took Zimmer's spot in the lineup versus the Giants. There should be an update on the 25-year-old's status later this week. He's an intriguing post-hype outfielder for the 2018 fantasy baseball season. Mar 19 - 2:49 PM

Bradley Zimmer went 2-for-3 with a solo homer against the Athletics on Friday.

Zimmer took Daniel Mengden deep to begin the game. The 25-year-old had a bit of an uneven rookie season, hitting just .241 with a .692 OPS while missing time down the stretch with a fracture in his hand. The strikeouts might continue to hurt his batting average upside, but he offers useful pop and elite speed. He could be worth a late-round look in mixed fantasy leagues.

Bradley Zimmer hit his first home run of the spring in the Indians' 4-2 Cactus League win over the Rangers on Monday.

It was a second-inning solo shot off Rangers reliever Jose Leclerc. Zimmer was a disappointment offensively last season as a rookie, but the 25-year-old outfielder makes for an intriguing post-hype fantasy commodity leading into 2018.

Bradley Zimmer notched two hits Wednesday in the Indians’ Cactus League win over Angels.

Zimmer began his day with a first-inning strikeout but redeemed himself by smacking a double in his next at-bat. He capped the day with a fifth-inning single and scored later in the frame on a base hit by Yandy Diaz. Zimmer had been hitless in six Cactus League at-bats prior to Wednesday.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Bradley Zimmer (hand) is "a very long shot" to return during the postseason.

Zimmer had the stitches removed from his surgically-repaired left hand last Wednesday and is close to swinging a bat, but he's too far behind to project a return to live action before the end of October. The rookie center fielder hit .241/.307/.385 with eight home runs and 18 stolen bases over his first 101 major league games in 2017.

Bradley Zimmer had the stitches removed from his surgically-repaired left hand on Wednesday.

Zimmer hasn't played since fracturing the fourth metacarpal in his left hand on September 10. It's unlikely we see the talented rookie return this year unless Cleveland makes the World Series, and even that wouldn't be a guarantee.

Bradley Zimmer underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a fracture in the fourth metacarpal on his left hand.

Zimmer suffered the injury on September 10 when he got stepped on while trying to beat out an infield single. The young outfielder will need 6-8 weeks of rest and rehab, making it highly unlikely he appears in another game this year. If the Indians can advance all the way to the World Series, maybe there's a chance.

Bradley Zimmer will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured fourth metacarpal in his left hand.

The Indians will wait until after the procedure to reveal a timetable for Zimmer, but he'll certainly at least miss the rest of the regular season and likely the postseason, as well. The rookie batted .241/.307/.385 batting line with eight homers, 39 RBI, and 18 steals over 101 games this season.

Bradley Zimmer (hand) is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

It's a tough break for Zimmer, who suffered a broken bone in his left hand when he was stepped on during a play at first base on Sunday. The rookie outfielder will finish the season with a .241/.307/.385 batting line with eight homers, 39 RBI, and 18 steals over 101 games. Austin Jackson and Greg Allen should see an uptick in playing time the rest of the way.

Bradley Zimmer suffered a broken bone in his left hand after getting his left hand stepped on during Sunday's victory over the Orioles.

The rookie outfielder was trying to beat out an infield single when he got his hand stepped on. He will be further evaluated on Monday, after which a timeframe for his recovery should be known.

Bradley Zimmer (concussion) went 1-for-5 with a double and a run scored in his return to the Indians' lineup Thursday.

Zimmer wasn't initially supposed to be in the lineup but was added late after the White Sox scratched Carlos Rodon (shoulder) in favor of Mike Pelfrey. It was the rookie outfielder's first start since last Saturday, as he was in MLB's concussion protocol after dealing with blurry vision following an attempted diving catch. Zimmer "thought he could have played three days ago," Indians manager Terry Francona said Thursday.

Bradley Zimmer was used as a pinch-runner and stayed in to play center field against the White Sox on Wednesday.

This came as quite a surprise, as there was no word from the Indians that Zimmer had been cleared to play after being placed in the concussion protocol program on Monday. He grounded out in his lone at-bat tonight.

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Bradley Zimmer is in MLB's concussion protocol program.

Zimmer left Saturday's game after attempting to make a diving catch. The Indians are naturally being cautious with him, but the hope is that he won't miss much time.

Bradley Zimmer left Saturday's game in the fourth inning after apparently injuring himself on a play in the outfield.

Zimmer was down for a bit after attempting a diving catch on Bryan Holaday's double, but he was able to finish the inning. He was then removed for a pinch-hitter before his next at-bat. Greg Allen replaced him.

Bradley Zimmer went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer from the leadoff spot Monday against the Red Sox.

Zimmer has come in at .281/.365/.509 with three homers, 12 RBI and four steals in 17 games in the second half. He seems like the Indians' best option in the leadoff spot against righties at the moment, and that shouldn't immediately change when Jason Kipnis returns.
