Ryan Zimmerman got an MRI earlier this week that showed hamstring is healing well.
Zimmerman has been out for more than a month with a hamstring injury but has been recovering well. It's unknown how long he'll continue to be out for, but it's looking like a mid-September return is most likely. It's been a rough year for Zimmerman, who has hit very well when healthy, but has been on the DL for much of the season. He's likely not worth owning in any single season formats, and may not see consistent playing time when he returns either. ANALYST: Ben Diamond
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
