Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with a solo homer, two RBI and two runs in the 11-9 victory over the Braves on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

That's a good way to come back from the disabled list. The Nationals activated Zimmerman before Saturday's affair and hit seventh. He is now slashing .229/.288/.408 with 13 homers, 40 RBI and 50 runs in 306 at-bats.

Zimmerman (wrist) was activated from the DL on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Nats didn't activate Zimmerman on Friday as some expected, but he is now back from his second DL stint of the season and will likely return right away to a regular role at first base. It's been tough sledding for the 31-year-old this season, as he's limped to a career-worst .222/.284/.394 line over 335 plate appearances. He is under contract for three more years with a team option ($2 million buyout) for 2020.

Zimmerman (wrist) is out of Friday's lineup against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Washington had hoped to activate Zimmerman from the DL on Friday, but it appears that they'll wait for the 31-year-old to return to action. However, he's with the team in Atlanta, so it's likely he'll be activated in the near future. Clint Robinson will start at first and bat seventh during Zimmerman's absence.

Zimmerman (wrist) is expected to be activated from the DL on Friday, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dusty Baker said both Zimmerman and Jose Lobaton are expected to join the team Friday, and there's a "good chance" the pair will be activated. Zimmerman, who began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, hasn't played since July 31. The 31-year-old is hitting just .222 with a .284 OBP on the year.

Zimerman (wrist) will start his rehab with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman recently started hitting and was considered a candidate to go on a rehab assignment at some point this week. The date has arrived early in the timeframe, and he will now look to round into form before rejoining the Nationals. The veteran has struggled this season at the plate, posting a career-low .290 wOBA, but has the ability to provide some power (12 home runs) if in need.

Zimmerman (wrist) is hitting and could go on a rehab assignment in the next few days, the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds as if Zimmerman could return to the Nationals before the end of the month, as a rehab assignment could begin early next week. It has been a rough year all around for Zimmerman, as he had a 77 wRC+ in 80 games prior to landing on the DL, but he still has the potential to hit a handful of homers over the season's final weeks if he can get relatively healthy.

Zimmerman (wrist) had an MRI Saturday which revealed no structural damage, Chase Hughes of CSNMA reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being placed on the DL with a left wrist contusion Saturday, the first baseman went in for an MRI which apparently yielded positive news. His wrist appeared to be structurally sound which indicates the rehab time could be quicker than expected. The 31-year-old is expected to seek a second opinion in the near future so check back in the coming days for a more definitive prognosis.

The Nationals placed Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a left wrist contusion.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman sat out the last four games and apparently will require more time to recover from the bruise on his hand, so the Nationals decided to place him the disabled list to free up a roster spot. Brian Goodwin will take Zimmerman's place on the roster, and Clint Robinson and Daniel Murphy figure to fill in at first base.

Zimmerman (wrist) is out of the Nationals lineup for the fourth straight game, but there has been no discussion of a disabled list stint, Mark Zuckerman of Masnsports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nationals manager Dusty Baker described his injury as a bone bruise. Zimmerman is still listed as day-to-day as he hopes for the swelling in his wrist to subside. Zimmerman may need a few more days before he's back in the starting lineup. Clint Robinson will start at first base on Friday.

Zimmerman (wrist) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will sit for the third straight game with the wrist injury and will also get to take advantage of Thursday's off day prior to this weekend's series against the Giants. X-rays on his wrist were negative, so he should still be considered day-to-day for now. Daniel Murphy will get the start at first base and hit cleanup Wednesday.
