Latest Update Zimmerman will play three innings at first base in a simulated game on Tuesday. Mon Sep, 15, 05:10 PM
He's blessed with a rare mix of size, athleticism, power and baseball instincts. Is an elite fielder at third base (when healthy) and excellent batter at the plate. Consistent, he hits for average and power. Can also walk.
Flaws: : Lacks the speed to steal a lot of bases at the big-league level (although he's a solid base-runner). Also strikes out a little too much and is prone to a few prolonged slumps. Also, his shoulder has become an issue over time.
He can't stay healthy anymore and has battled a plethora of injuries this season. He can barely throw the ball anymore because his shoulder is so messed up. Ignore him in all fantasy leagues this year and next year as well. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Zimmerman's been out for over a month with a hamstring injury, but it looks like he is nearing a return. Barring a setback, he'll likely be back with the Nationals late next week. He's been great when healthy this year, but with Washington's deep offense, he may not see as much playing time as fantasy owners would like. Analyst: Ben Diamond
It has been another miserable season for the Washington 3B/OF but if he can get back at the end of the season, he could give the team a good boost going into the post season.Analyst: Ivar G. AndersonMore Experts..
This is a positive step forward for the Nationals as they could be getting one of their stars back pretty soon. Tentatively, he is scheduled to play in an instructional league game sometime next week, and it shouldn't be too long after that he is back in a Nationals uniform. Analyst: Colby Conway
