Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmermann will hit seventh in the lineup Tuesday, July 26, against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.
Fantasy Tip: The team is easing his bat into the lineup by not putting Zimmermann right at the top or in a hit-producing position. All the pressure should be off. See how Zimmermann does in his first one or two games before activating him.

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 26. The team also optioned OF Michael Taylor to Class AAA Syracuse.
Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman should receive most of the starts at first base since he is back from injury. He is hitting only .221 this season but should still be a decent starting option in most mixed leagues.

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, July 26. He went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in his final rehab game for Class A Potomac Saturday, July 23.
Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman was not having a great season prior to landing on the disabled list, batting .221 with 12 home runs and 38 RBI through 74 games. He should only be stashed in NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues if you can afford the roster space. His return means Clint Robinson and Trea Turner should see reduced playing time going forward.

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) went 1-for-5 with two RBI and four strikeouts in his second rehab game for Class A Potomac Friday, July 22.
Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman is eligible to return from the disabled list next week but he is going through a terrible season, hitting just .221 with 12 home runs and 38 RBI through 74 games, so he isn't worth stashing in shallow mixed leagues. Clint Robinson will continue to see most of the action at first base until he returns.

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) is expected to begin his rehab assignment with Class A Potomac Thursday, July 21, and manager Dusty Baker wants to see Zimmerman play in three games before returning to the lineup Tuesday, July 26, against the Cleveland Indians. Zimmerman said he "feels pretty good."
Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman is on the cusp of a return to the Nats' lineup, but those in mixed leagues probably aren't all that interested. The veteran first baseman does provide some pop in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues (12 homers), but he's hitting a paltry .221 on the year and remains an injury risk.
