Latest Update Ryan Zimmerman is not starting Monday. Mon Oct, 06, 01:33 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.
Ryan Zimmerman is not 100 percent and he would be a liability in the field. He may not be in the starting lineup but don't be surprised if you see him pinch hit later in the game in an important situation.Analyst: Drew Phelps
This development would spell the end of Adam Laroche in Washington. Laroche had a fine year in 2014 hitting .259 with 73 runs, 26 home runs and 96 RBI. Zimmerman was limited to just 61 games this season but is signed through 2019 and first base would be the logical position for Zimmerman to move to if Laroche was to sign elsewhere.

Zimmerman has gotten to play a little bit to get back into the swing of things and is likely to start Sunday. The team is giving all of their starters a chance to rest here at the end while they get ready for the playoffs.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Nationals are resting a lot of their regulars down the stretch so it's a great time to start getting Zimmerman some regular at-bats to finish the year on a positive note. There hasn't been any word as to whether or not they'll play him anywhere but third base.Analyst: Howard Bender
