The Indians are expected to make a decision whether to place Bradley Zimmer (chest) on the disabled list based on what is able to do in a workout Monday.

Zimmer has made just one start over the last week after bruising his chest when he collided with the outfield wall. We should find out prior to Tuesday's game whether he's DL-bound or close to game-ready.

Bradley Zimmer (chest) remained out of the Indians' lineup Monday.

Zimmer remains sore after colliding with the outfield wall over a week ago, as he's made just one start since then. At this point, the Indians still appear willing to wait it out rather than backdate a disabled list stint. Greg Allen is handling center field.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Zimmer being out should not hinder the Indians offense one bit tonight as they have a slate high 5.3 team total against Mike Fiers and the Tigers.  Look to target lefties against Fiers, especially red hot Michael Brantley, the veteran has homered in 2 out of last 3 and is hitting .336 on the season.  Yonder Alonso, another lefty, will offer salary relief and big upside on all sites as well.

Bradley Zimmer (chest) remained out of the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Zimmer had played just once over the last week because of a bruised chest. Yonder Alonso and fellow left-handed swinger Jason Kipnis are both on the bench with the Royals throwing southpaw Danny Duffy. Rajai Davis, Greg Allen, Brandon Guyer and Erik Gonzalez are getting starts in the Tribe's reshuffled lineup.

Bradley Zimmer was scratched from the Indians' starting lineup on Saturday due to a bruised chest.

Zimmer is still feeling sore when swinging the bat, so he'll take at least another day off to recover. Brandon Guyer will replace him in the lineup and start in right field while Greg Allen slides over to cover center.

Bradley Zimmer is absent from the Indians' lineup Friday.

Zimmer returned to action Wednesday after missing a couple of games with a sore left shoulder and hip, but he's now back on the bench even after an off day Thursday. He hasn't suffered any known setback. Greg Allen is in center field. The Indians have also moved Jason Kipnis down to the No. 6 spot in the lineup after hitting him second all season.
May 11 - 3:36 PM

Bradley Zimmer (shoulder, hip) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

Zimmer missed a couple of games with a sore left shoulder and hip following a collision with the outfield wall on Saturday. The 25-year-old has been a disappointment so far this season, batting just .224/.283/.337 with two homers and four steals.

Bradley Zimmer (shoulder, hip) is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Zimmer's left shoulder and hip are sore after he collided with the outfield wall Saturday, but he hasn't had any concussion symptoms and is expected to be ready to play Tuesday after Monday's off day. Greg Allen is in center field Sunday.
May 6 - 11:19 AM

Bradley Zimmer left Saturday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder contusion.

Zimmer was injured on a play in the bottom of the seventh inning and was replaced by Brandon Guyer. It sounds as though he avoided anything overly serious, though, with Indians manager Terry Francona saying Zimmer might even be able to play Sunday. Even if he does miss the finale of the Yanks series, the 25-year-old should be back in there sooner than later.
May 5 - 4:12 PM

Bradley Zimmer reached base four times, swatting a single and drawing three walks, driving in a run and scoring two in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

Zimmer did some good work in both games of the doubleheader, going 2-for-7 with three RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base on the day. He'll take all the positives he can get right now, as it's been a sluggish start to the year for the 25-year-old. Even with Thursday's good showing, Zimmer is hitting .227/.284/.307 in 29 games this year.
May 4 - 12:45 AM

Bradley Zimmer (ankle) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his return to action Monday against the Orioles.

Zimmer was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a mild right ankle sprain, but he's already feeling better. The 25-year-old is off to a rough start at the plate, batting just .236/.263/.327 across 18 games.

Bradley Zimmer was scratched from the Indians' lineup Sunday because of a right ankle sprain.

It's unclear when Zimmer was injured, but it doesn't sound like a big deal. Consider him day-to-day. Rajai Davis has replaced Zimmer in center field.
Apr 22 - 12:47 PM

Bradley Zimmer homered to give the Indians their only two runs Monday against the Tigers.

It was enough tonight. Zimmer drew the start tonight even though the Indians were facing left-hander Francisco Liriano, and the homer came off Liriano. A left-handed hitter, Zimmer had been on the bench two of the previous three times the Indians faced lefties this season. It'd be great for his fantasy value if he could show he's more than a platoon player.
Apr 9 - 11:04 PM

Bradley Zimmer is not in the Indians' starting lineup on Saturday.

Zimmer went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in his first game. Rajai Davis is drawing the start in center field and batting fifth against left-hander James Paxton and the Mariners.
Mar 31 - 1:14 PM

Bradley Zimmer hit his third Cactus League homer Sunday against the Reds.

Zimmer took exciting young Reds starter Luis Castillo deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning, his only hit in two at-bats -- he also walked once -- before exiting. It hasn't been a monster spring for the 25-year-old, but it didn't need to be for him to secure his spot in the Indians' outfield and starting lineup. Zimmer won't hit for a high average but has exciting power and speed that plays in fantasy leagues.
