Him and Stras would be a nice 1-2 punch.

Per Rotoworld:

Jordan Zimmermann (elbow) could be activated from the DL later this week when the Nationals need someone to fill in for the injured J.D. Martin.

Zimmermann, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, has been fantastic in his four rehab outings so far, tossing 13 scoreless innings while registering 13 strikeouts and no walks. The Nationals might want to play it safe and wait until August to bring him back, but they'll surely be tempted given how well he's pitching. Scott Olsen, John Lannan and Matt Chico are other options.

Zimmermann (Tommy John surgery) has been removed from the 60-day DL and optioned to Triple-A, the Washington Post reports.
Spin: He'll make another rehab start or two for Triple-A New Orleans, then rejoin the Nationals rotation.

Could help out down the stretch.

Zimmermann (don't forget the extra "n") is one of my favorite pitchers. I watched all of his starts last year and came away with an appreciation for his aggressive, ultra-competitive mentality as well as his great stuff. He'll be a fantastic #2 in the Nats rotation behind Strasburg for many years. If you're in a keeper league and can grab him now I'd highly recommend it. I think that Josh Johnson make a perfect comp and Zimmermann has the stuff and makeup post similar numbers (3.00 ERA 1.10 WHIP, and 200 Ks are not out of the question in 2011).
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
