Zimmerman went 2-for-4 Monday with two doubles and an RBI in a 2-0 win over the Royals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It's just his second multi-hit performance in his last 16 games, and Zimmerman's slash line has sagged to .234/.310/.338 on the season. Manager Dusty Baker continues to hit him in the cleanup spot behind Bryce Harper, but that could soon change if Zimmerman isn't able to pick up the pace.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Zimmerman went 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBI in a 2-0 win over the Twins on Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He now sports a .265/.339/.388 slash line with one home run and six RBI in 13 games, but Zimmerman is capable of much more. The important thing so far is that he's stayed on the field and avoided the DL, and a run of good health could allow him to recapture the form he hasn't really shown since 2013.

Zimmerman went 1-for-4 Tuesday with a solo shot, his first home run of the season.

Competitive Edge Analysis

His hot start has faded over the last week, and Zimmerman now has a .256/.318/.385 slash line on the season with just three RBI in 39 at-bats. Hitting behind Bryce Harper should continue to bring him plenty of RBI opportunities, however, and as long as he stays off the DL there's no reason to get too concerned about his early-season production.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He's now hitting .314 (11-for-35) this spring with two home runs and a .514 SLG. Zimmerman's plantar fasciitis could cause him further problems this season, making him a risky fantasy investment, but it looks as though he'll be healthy and in fine form for Opening Day.
