Jul 14 Mark Zuckerman, of The Washington Times, reports Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (shoulder) may be activated Friday, July 18.
Jul 14 3B Ryan Zimmerman will begin a rehab assignment on Monday with Class A Potomac (Woodbridge, Va.), DHing for two games there before heading to Class AAA Columbus (Ohio). Zimmerman has been out since late May with a small labral tear in his left shoulder, but said it's stronger now than it was before the injury. "I essentially did an offseason workout for a month and a half," he said.
Is anybody else feeling a little optimistic about this guy?
I've had him on the DL since day one and was thinking about dropping him for another bat for this Thursday. Now that I read this news, I feel inclined to stick with him and see how he does.
