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

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) went through a full workout Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Zimmerman continues to progress in his recovery from plantar fasciitis, and he's scheduled to go through another full workout Wednesday. He remains without a timetable, but the next step in his recovery will be a minor league rehab stint.

Zimmerman (foot) ran on a treadmill and took throws at first base Wednesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Zimmerman continues to work back from a foot injury, and he'll gradually increase his activity over the coming days. He remains without a timetable, and at this point it's unclear whether he's targeting a return before the All-Star break.

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.

Zimmerman (foot) is without a timetable to return to the field, the Washington Post's James Wagner reports.

He said it has been "brutal" to sit around and rest his foot, which is affected by ongoing plantar fasciitis. It is probably worth continuing to stash Zimmerman in most formats, but the possibility remains that he will not get back to 100 percent this season as this has the feel of something that could be a chronic issue, at least in 2015.

Zimmerman was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Zimmerman was suffering from ongoing foot problems, but it was believed he would just receive extra days of rest. It appears the plan has now changed, and the Nats will instead give him extended rest on the disabled list, while the club called up Matt den Dekker to take his place on the 25-man roster and to provide some extra depth in the outfield.

Nationals manager Matt Williams acknowledged on Wednesday that Zimmerman would continue getting days off as necessary to manage the plantar fasciitis in his left foot, the Washington Post reports. "Number one concern for me is physical health and the foot and making sure that he's able to get out there and play and do what he wants to do. We monitor that every day and make decisions on it every day as well," Williams said.

Zimmerman is hitting just .209/.265.346 on the season with five home runs, and while he's been able to stay somewhat productive with 34 RBI, the lingering foot issue makes it tough to bank on him improving those numbers any time soon. In shallower leagues, the bench or even the waiver wire is probably the best place to leave Zimmerman until he shows signs of turning things around.

Zimmerman, who continues to deal with plantar fasciitis, is out of the lineup Wednesday, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

In addition to dealing with plantar fasciitis, Zimmerman has four hits in his last 46 at-bats, so the day off does not come as a surprise. Tyler Moore will get the start at first base Wednesday. It seems that the Nationals will let Zimmerman continue trying to play through the plantar fasciitis, but more scattered off days could be in his future.

Zimmerman is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, batting fifth and playing first base.

Zimmerman sat out of Sunday's series finale and was replaced by Tyler Moore in the order. He is 4-for-13 in his career at Yankee Stadium with two doubles but will be facing Masahiro Tanaka for the first time Tuesday.

Zimmerman is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Zimmerman has made four straight starts at first base, but will get a regular day off in favor of Tyler Moore on Sunday afternoon. He's in the midst of a 1-for-21 slump, so a day to clear his head was likely in order.
