Zimmerman went 4-for-4 with two doubles, two homers and four RBI in Friday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Zimmerman entered Friday's contest having gone 1-for-13 with seven strikeouts over his past three starts but was able to break out in a big way. It was his second four-hit game of the season and seventh multi-homer game of his resurgent 2017 campaign. The strong offensive performance pushed his season average back above .300 and added to his career-high home run total that now sits at 36. The Nationals hope that the 33-year-old's bat will stay hot in their upcoming NLDS series against the Cubs.

Zimmerman (general soreness) went 1-for-4 with a double, a run and two strikeouts in Monday's 3-1 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He sat out all three games over the weekend due to general soreness, but played the full game Monday, and should continue to be used as the primary first baseman over the final six games of the regular season. Zimmerman has set a career high in home runs (34) and is seven RBI shy of tying his career best in that category (110), set back in 2006.

Zimmerman is feeling soreness and will not play this weekend, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not clear exactly what is ailing Zimmerman, but the Nationals can afford to give him as much rest as needed, so manager Dusty Baker is planning to hold him out both Saturday and Sunday. Adam Lind is starting in Zimmerman's place Saturday and figures to do the same Sunday.

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.
