Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-1 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman notched three singles to raise his batting average to .372 - good for second in the National League behind only Justin Turner. The Nationals first baseman is having a renaissance performance in 2017 after three injury-plagued seasons limited him to just 90 games a season from 2014 to 2016. As long as he stays healthy, Zimmerman should be a productive fixture in the middle of a loaded Nationals lineup.

Zimmerman is not in the Nationals' Thursday lineup against the Pirates, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The major-league RBI leader (38) will get a breather in the matinee after going 0-for-4 Wednesday night. Even with a recent 2-for-15 stretch, Zimmerman has regained the elite upside he used to possess thanks to changes to his swing, which have in turn increase his launch angle and, in turn, power. Zimmerman should return Friday. Adam Lind subs in at first, batting seventh.

Zimmerman went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old now has a major-league leading 38 RBI, two ahead of teammate Bryce Harper, to go along with his improbable .385/.429/.785 slash line. Zimmerman's .411 BABIP will eventually come down, but he's fully healthy for the first time in years and should continue being a big run producer in the heart of a potent Nats lineup even if his batting average returns to something closer to his career .280 mark.

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

With the team slated to play a doubleheader, it appears that the Nationals are simply giving the 32-year-old Zimmerman some early rest after collecting two hits and driving in two runs during Saturday evening's ballgame. Adam Lind will draw the start for Game 1.

Zimmerman went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He'd hit a bit of a rough patch recently, going 1-for-14 over his prior three games, but a couple of rainouts gave Zimmerman a chance to re-focus and he responded by boosting his RBI total to 36 in 34 games. The 32-year-old's .430 BABIP won't last forever, but his re-discovered power stroke appears to be for real and he's well on his way to potentially matching or topping his previous career highs of 33 homers and 106 RBI, set way back in 2009.

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman is off to an absolutely scorching hot start to begin the 2017 season, but will head to the bench Sunday for Sunday's series finale against Jeremy Hellickson and the Phillies. Adam Lind will man first base in the starter's absence. Expect Zimmerman and his 13 homers and 34 RBI to slot back in to the heart of the Nationals' lineup Monday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman launched his 13th bomb in the fourth inning to give the Nats a lead they'd never relinquish. His incredible season has been beyond superlatives, and he's slashing .435/.475/.907.

Zimmerman went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and a double Friday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman continued his torrid start to the year by launching his 12th bomb of the year off Nick Pivetta to help the Nats to a victory. Although he entered the game in a four-game homerless streak, he's still hit seven homers over his last 11 games, and he's also collected multiple hits in seven of his last eight games as he continues to be one of the best fantasy producers to date.

Zimmerman went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

He's now hit safely in 10 straight games with six straight multi-hit performances, leaving Zimmerman with an absurd .427/.462/.875 slash line to go with 11 homers, 30 RBI and 23 runs through 26 games. The NL Player of the Month for April will cool down eventually, but good health and an improved approach at the plate have the 32-year-old well on his way to a career year.

Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI Saturday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman blasted his 11th homer of the season to pull the Nationals within one run in the eighth inning of a game they'd eventually lose. He's been absolutely on fire for the entire month of April, as he's collected multiple hits in 10 different contests, and he's been white-hot over the last 10 games with eight bombs to show for it. As long as the 32-year-old remains healthy, fantasy owners need to ride him as long as possible.
