Ryan Zimmerman 1B/3B/LF WAS 9 hours ago

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.

Zimmerman bopped his first homer of the year Wednesday against the Mets.

The two-run shot came in the first inning, and it ended up being his only hit of the day, as Zimmerman struck out two of his next three times up and ended up leaving five men on base. Health is always a question mark for the 30-year-old first baseman, but he should get back to the 20-homer level if he can stay on the field.

Zimmerman (back) indicated he had no problems while participating in a batting practice session Sunday and he'll be in the lineup Monday, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports.

Zimmerman suffered the minor issue diving for a ball Friday, and it appears he'll be good to go for Monday. Assuming all goes well, it looks as though the now first baseman will be ready for Opening Day.

Zimmerman doesn't expect to miss more than a couple of days after diving for a ground ball during Friday's game, Tom Schad of the Washington Times reports.

The issue doesn't seem to be a serious one, but given Zimmerman's checkered track record when it comes to his health, it wouldn't be surprised if this turned out to be something that kept him on the shelf for Opening Day. If Zimmerman does miss any regular season action to start the season, look for Tyler Moore to get the nod at first base.

Zimmerman left Friday's game early after diving for a ground ball, the Washington Post reports.

Nationals manager Matt Williams insisted that Zimmerman was "fine" and that removing him from the game was just a precaution, but given what's happened with Anthony Rendon (knee) this spring, Zimmerman owners would be justified in wanting a little more reassurance than that. Clint Robinson is listed as the starter at first base on Saturday, but Zimmerman was due for a day off anyway after getting the nod in three straight games. If you're drafting this weekend, don't drop him down on your cheat sheets just yet.

Zimmerman went 2-for-3 at the plate on Saturday and looked very comfortable in the field at first base, making a couple of good plays on ground balls hit to his right.

So far this spring, Zimmerman's move across the diamond has gone without a hitch. If he's able to stay healthy at his new position, he should be able to return to his usual level of offensive production.
