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. Oct 3 - 4:42 PM

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.
Sep 27 - 5:20 PM

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.
Sep 10 - 11:53 PM

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.
Sep 8 - 11:46 AM

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.
Sep 6 - 11:51 PM

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.
Sep 4 - 12:11 PM

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.
Sep 2 - 7:26 PM

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.
Jul 31 - 11:59 PM

Bradley Zimmer went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Angels.

He led off the first inning with a solo home run off Ricky Nolasco, then added an RBI double in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old rookie has offered his fantasy owners solid five category production since he got the call to the majors two months ago. He has a .277 batting average with six homers, 33 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 213 plate appearances.
Jul 27 - 12:35 AM

Bradley Zimmer had a monster night at the plate on Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI as the Indians topped the Angels.

Zimmer blasted a grand slam during a seven-run uprising in the second inning. He also singled twice, walked, scored three runs and swiped a pair of bases in the contest. For the season, the impressive rookie is hitting .277/.337/.436 with six homers, 33 RBI and 12 stolen bases.
Jul 26 - 12:04 AM

Bradley Zimmer went 1-for-4 with a pair of RBI as the Indians crushed the Blue Jays on Friday night.

Hitting out of the leadoff spot in the Indians' lineup, Zimmer came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning to cap off the scoring in the ballgame. The rookie outfielder is hitting .264/.328/.408 with five homers, 27 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 192 plate appearances.
Jul 21 - 10:56 PM

Bradley Zimmer went 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Tigers on Friday.

Zimmer hit four homers between his promotion on May 16 and June 6, but he'd gone without a bomb since then. He changed that Friday, taking Tigers reliever Chad Bell deep in the fifth inning. His lack of power aside, it's been a fairly successful first few months of his major league career for the 24-year-old, who's hitting .282/.340/.444 with nine steals as we quickly approach the All-Star break.
