Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman back in lineup

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 10:21:33 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman (shoulder) is back in the spring lineup Monday, March 30, two days after injuring his left shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) should be good to go for the season opener in a week unless he suffers a setback before then. Multipositional eligibility makes Zimmerman more attractive this season, but he still carries plenty of injury risk.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman out a couple days

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 14:13:12 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman (shoulder) is likely to miss the next two or three days after jamming his left shoulder/upper back area diving for a ball Friday, March 27. No MRI will be taken, and he said he feels better already.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman ($5,100, 10.2% of your cap) is at the bottom of the first tier of FantasyScore first basemen, but we're not sure his production matches that. He needs to prove his health and ability to get back to his .280-25-90 self before we're comfortable at that price.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman taken out of game

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 13:24:28 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman (side) left the spring game early Friday, March 27, after having "banged himself" on the left side while making a diving stop in the first inning, according to manager Matt Williams. Zimmerman didn't ask to be taken out, though, and Williams insisted the move was precautionary. "He's good," Williams said following his team's 1-1 tie with the St. Louis Cardinals. "He's played three in a row. He's fine. He dove for that ball, banged himself a little bit. But he's good. No worries."

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman will always be a risky fantasy baseball player because of his injury-prone ways, but the fact that he now has eligibility at third base, outfield, and eventually first base, makes him an intriguing asset.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman working at 1B

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 14:58:25 -0800

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman continues to work at first base in spring training, and the team has been impressed with his athleticism in learning the new position. "His athleticism is key for us," manager Matt Williams said. "He catches everything. He doesn't miss a ball."

Fantasy Tip: The most intriguing thing about Zimmerman entering the 2015 season is that he'll add first base to his eligibility collection, which makes him a bit more valuable to fantasy baseball owners. In addition to first, he'll also be eligible at third and in the outfield. However, there's plenty of injury risk that comes along with him, which is why he's ranked 13th in our third base rankings once the bigger names come off the board.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman won't play OF

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 11:33:55 -0800

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman won't be playing outfield or third base during defensive work this spring, according to manager Matt Williams. Zimmerman will spend all his time at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman's injury concerns are the biggest reason why he's fallen so far in the third base rankings heading into 2015. Power may be a concern now, too, if his shoulder is no longer as strong as it once was. Both third and first base eligibility will be nice, but he may not see enough time to qualify as an outfielder.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman likely to be in bench role

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 11:23:39 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) was unable to play third base in a simulated game Wednesday, Oct. 1, and hasn't appeared at the hot corner since Sept. 20. Zimmerman played in left field during the simulated game, according to manager Matt Williams. Zimmerman doesn't have an obvious spot if he were to return to the starting lineup, making it likely that he'll be in a bench role in the National League Division Series.
