Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman showed good mobility defensively and on the base paths during a rehab game with Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday as he continues to recover from plantar fasciitis, according to the Washington Post. Zimmerman went 0-for-2 in the contest, but said he feels he is getting to the point where he can play every day without discomfort. “First of all I have to go up there and play every day. It’s not worth it to go up there and play two days and need two days off. That kind of puts them in a bind,” Zimmerman said. “When I’m ready to go every day, that’s kind of what we’re waiting on. As far as the at bats, who knows. It could be 15-20 at bats, it could be 25. I’m obviously not gonna stay down forever. At some point, you just have to go with what you got.”

Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman said he is hopeful that he will be able to begin a rehab assignment soon after running the bases for the second time while recovering from plantar fasciitis, according to the Washington Post. Zimmerman has been on the disabled list since early June as a result of the injury, and though he acknowledged he is still feeling discomfort, he said he has been able to fully participate in baseball activities. “It feels good,” he said. “Groundballs, at the plate, everything feels good. Towards the end when I was playing through it, it sort of felt it at the plate a little bit, but that’s no excuse for how bad I was hitting. I’m not going to use it as a cop out. I’m just gonna say I needed to hit better.” Zimmerman does not have a timetable for return.

Zimmerman's foot is feeling better and the team hopes he can begin a rehab assignment following the minor league All-Star break, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports.

This is a positive sign for Zimmerman, whose plantar fasciitis has made for a difficult recovery process since landing on the DL. Manager Matt Williams told reporters that if things go well over the next few days, Zimmerman could begin his rehab assignment next week.

Zimmerman (foot) has yet to resume running, although he is taking batting and fielding practice, the Washington Post reports.

He's receiving new medication to reduce the inflammation caused by his plantar fasciitis, which may help, but until Zimmerman is able to run at least somewhat effectively he won't be close to returning to action.

Zimmerman (foot) felt some discomfort while running during Wednesday's workout, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

The foot discomfort caused Zimmerman to ease up on the running portion of his workout, which comes just one day after he logged a full workout. The fact that he struggled to get through consecutive days of workouts indicates that Zimmerman's progression will be slowed and tightly monitored for the time being. Once he's able to notch workouts on consecutive days with no setbacks, a rehab assignment would be his next step.

Zimmerman (foot) took swings Tuesday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports.

Zimmerman took the swings while wearing an orthotic in his shoe to help alleviate the pain from his plantar fasciitis. It still isn't clear when he will rejoin the Nationals, and this may be a chronic problem for the rest of the season, even if he returns in fairly short order.
