Ryan Zimmerman, who left Saturday's game with a tight hamstring, is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday. MLB.com's Bill Ladson reports that he won't play Monday either.
Zimmerman starts a three-game series in Philadelphia on Monday and with an off day on Tuesday, it is likely he will return in the game Wednesday. If you still feel five games with Zimmerman in your lineup is better than six games with anyone else, and you probably should, go ahead and keep him active. Realize, though, that he is an injury-risk start for Week 2 (April 12-18). He's also a must-start, when healthy.
I am benching him this week. Please keep us posted should we hear something different.
