Zimmerman 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

He now has 101 RBI on the season, the third time in his career but first since 2009 that he's topped the century mark. Zimmerman's heated up again with the postseason looming, slashing .339/.383/.607 in September with four homers and 13 RBI in 15 games.

Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Sunday's 7-1 win over the visiting Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The pair of long balls were the first in eight games for the veteran, who has now tied his career high with 33 this season. Zimmerman's 99 RBI are 11 off his personal best set in his sophomore season campaign back in 2006, and with 13 games left, he should be able to challenge that mark.

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dusty Baker is giving the majority of his starters a breather, so Zimmerman will give way to Adam Lind at first base as the Nationals look to avoid a sweep against Mike Foltynewicz and the Braves.

Zimmerman is out of the lineup Sunday against Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman will give way to Adam Lind at first base for Sunday's contest. Zimmerman has played well recently, as he's slashed .323/.400/.548 with two home runs and seven RBI over the last nine games. With the team having Monday off, Zimmerman will likely return to action Tuesday versus the Braves.

Zimmerman went 3-for-5 with his 31st home run, two RBI and three runs against the Marlins on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran's power had not been materializing recently, as he'd managed just a .234/.371/.314 line with just one home run over a 17-game stretch coming into play. Indeed, the vast majority of Zimmerman's 2017 offensive outburst came before the end of July, as he's been a rather pedestrian hitter for the last month-plus.

Zimmerman is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Nationals are resting several regulars in this one, with Zimmerman making way for Adam Lind, who is starting at first base and hitting fifth against righty Odrisamer Despaigne. Zimmerman is hitting .278/.395/.472 with four home runs over his last 72 at-bats.

Zimmerman 2-for-3 with a two-run home run during Sunday's loss to Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

The round tripper gives Zimmerman 30 for the campaign, which is an impressive total alongside his high-end .302/.361/.562 slash line. It's been an excellent rebound for the 32-year-old veteran, and while the production has slowed after an otherworldly start, it's difficult to complain about the return on investment Zimmerman has provided in 2017.

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After missing two games to an arm injury, Zimmerman was able to return for Washington's first game Sunday, in which he went 1-for-4 with a walk and run scored. He'll get the night to rest while Adam Lind starts at first base and hits fifth.

Zimmerman (arm) will bat cleanup and man first base in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman had been sidelined the past two games with arm soreness, but with the veteran cleared of any structural damage, the Nationals never feared that he would require a trip to the disabled list. The Nationals could still look to limit Zimmerman's workload coming off the injury by holding him out of the lineup for the nightcap Sunday, but the team will presumably wait and see how he feels following Game 1 before making that decision.

Zimmerman (arm) is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mets, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman has been dealing with a bit of arm soreness, so it's not surprising that he was withheld from the lineup Saturday. Fortunately, he downplayed the severity of his ailment, so he'll likely return to the lineup soon. Adam Lind is starting at first base and hitting fourth Saturday in place of Zimmerman.
