Ryan Zimmerman 1B/3B/LF WAS 1 week ago

Zimmerman made his only hit of the game count on Tuesday, drilling a two-run home run off Andrew Miller in the bottom of the 10th to give the Nationals a walk-off win.

It was just his fifth home run of the season, but it did push his RBI total to an impressive 31. Zimmerman's .242/.294/.418 slash line isn't up to his usual level, but Tuesday's heroics could be just what he needs to kick into gear.

Zimmerman went 1-for-2 in Monday's rout of the Diamondbacks with a walk, two runs scored and a three-run home run.

He's starting to heat up, hitting .389 (7-for-18) over the last five games with two home runs and eight RBI. Zimmerman's adjusted well to his new defensive home at first base, and it looks like he's getting comfortable at the plate too. With the rest of the Nats' lineup hitting well around him, Zimmerman seems poised for a very productive May.

Zimmerman went 1-for-4 Saturday with a three-run home run.

Despite a weak .223/.278/.380 slash line and only three home runs, Zimmerman still has 20 RBI in 31 games so far this season. He's always been a streaky player and his .245 BABIP is well below his career norms, so if you have any shares in Zimmerman just be patient and wait for that seemingly inevitable hot streak to kick in.

Zimmerman's broken-bat single in the first inning on Sunday proved to be the difference in the Nats' 1-0 win over the Mets.

He's got a modest seven game hitting streak going, and while he's still only slashing .221/.274/.375 on the season, Zimmerman's managed to stay productive with 16 RBI. With Bryce Harper drawing walks at a career-best pace and Anthony Rendon (knee) inching closer to a return to the lineup, Zimmerman's opportunities to drive in runs should remain plentiful.

Zimmerman will bat second in the Nationals' order Monday against the Braves, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Zimmermaan will hit second in the order for the first time this season Monday, which could lead to an extra at-bat for daily fantasy purposes. Manager Matt Williams has been mixing up lineups recently, so his spot in the two hole can't be counted on regularly. However, it can't be ruled out as a permanent outcome either should the lineup click Monday.

Zimmerman (foot) sleeps with a special splint to combat his plantar fasciitis every night, the Marlins broadcast reported Saturday.

While Zimmerman has been able to play through the injury, this hardly seems mild. This very well could linger for a while this season.

Zimmerman (foot) is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports.

Barring a late adjustment, it appears as though Zimmerman is going to continue to play through a mild case of plantar fasciitis. Don't be surprised if he ends up receiving a day off in the near future if the injury lingers.

Zimmerman has been suffering from a mild case of planter fasciitis for a few days and may require a day off soon, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports.

Thankfully, Zimmerman's issue appears to be minor, as he's played through it the last couple days. However, if the issue continues to persist, it may require him to take extra days off over the course of the season.

Zimmerman went 2-for-4 Wednesday with a run scored and an RBI.

He was off to a slow start to the season, but the streaky Zimmerman has now reeled off three straight multi-hit games to boost his slash line to .224/.308/.431, and he does have 12 RBI in 15 games. Expect that batting average to continue to climb as he heats up.

Zimmerman went 1-for-3 with a homer and two RBI in Monday's loss to Boston.

The blast was Zimmerman's second of the season, but he's hit just .154 through the first seven games. With the return of Jayson Werth to the lineup Monday, Zimmerman was penciled into the No. 5 spot in the order for manager Matt Williams.
