Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) still hasn't participated in baseball activities. The team is hopeful he can return by late September.
The playoffs are in sight sand while the Nationals would like to get him back, there's little reason to rush him. They would like to have him available towards the end of the month so he's not starting cold in the playoffs, but won't rush anything just yet.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
