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

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman has shown no signs of slowing down this season, as the veteran first baseman has now put together three consecutive two-hit performances. Manager Dusty Baker will give the slugging first baseman the day off as the Nationals wrap up their three-game set against Scott Feldman and the Reds. Adam Lind takes over at first base, batting sixth.

Zimmerman is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Nationals playing an afternoon game after a night game and a team off day looming Thursday, manager Dusty Baker will take advantage of the scheduling quirk by giving Zimmerman two full days to rest up. Zimmerman, who will give way to Adam Lind at first base Wednesday, played a major part in the Nationals' 12-run eruption a night earlier, driving in three and scoring twice.

Zimmerman went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 12-3 rout of the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

He busted out of a 3-for-25 mini-slump with the performance. Zimmerman now has 57 RBI on the season, putting him in second place in MLB in that category behind Jake Lamb's 59.

Zimmerman (back) is playing first base and batting cleanup Tuesday against the Braves, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman is back in action after missing the last three games with a back injury. The 32-year-old, who is slashing a silly .365/.409/.697 with 17 homers and 49 RBI this season, will face knuckleballer R.A. Dickey in his return to the lineup.

Zimmerman (back) is not in the lineup Monday against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman will miss his third straight game as he continues to battle a back injury. According to Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post, manager Dusty Baker said he thinks Zimmerman could play Monday if needed, but the skipper didn't chose to give him an extra day to heal up. Look for Zimmerman to return to the lineup Tuesday, though nothing is set in stone.

Zimmerman (back) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman has been hampered by a back injury that has now kept him out of three of the Nationals' last four contests. An approximate timetable for his return has yet to be established, so he'll remain listed as day-to-day. Adam Lind starts at first base Sunday.

Zimmerman (back) has been dealing with a back injury since he dove for a fly ball against the Dodgers earlier in the week, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman's status for Sunday's series finale against the Rangers is completely up in the air. The first baseman did not play Saturday or Thursday, but went 2-for-4 with a double during Friday's contest. Manager Dusty Baker could choose to place Adam Lind in the lineup for the second straight game if Zimmerman is unable to play.

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman will take his second day off in the past three games after going 2-for-4 with a double in the series opener Friday. In his place, Adam Lind is set up at first while batting fifth. Zimmerman is seeing the ball as well as anyone in the league right now, and he is likely to be back in the lineup for Sunday's matchup.

Zimmerman is not in the lineup Thursday against the Orioles, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite driving in Washington's only run with a solo shot off Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday, Zimmerman will head to the bench for Thursday's series opener. The 32-year-old continues to swing a hot bat, slashing .362/.407/.696 in 226 plate appearances this season. Adam Lind will take over at first base in his stead, batting cleanup.

Zimmerman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman continued his outstanding campaign by homering off Clayton Kershaw in the second inning. Unfortunately for the Nats, that would be the only time they could score on the Dodgers ace. While it's only June 7, Zimmerman looks poised to contend for the Triple Crown. He leads the National League in average (.362) and home runs (17) and is third in RBI (49). If he falls short of the Triple Crown, he still looks like the favorite for Comeback Player of the Year.
