Nats to hold press conference for Ryan Zimmerman
The Nationals will hold a press conference at 4:00 p.m. ET to announce that third baseman Ryan Zimmerman has signed a five-year, $45 million extension. Zimmerman agreed to terms on Sunday, according to a high-ranking team official.
Team president Stan Kasten and agent Brodie Van Wagenen have been working on a new deal for Zimmerman since March 1, the day Jim Bowden resigned as the club’s general manager.
