Zimmermann has rehab start

In his first rehab start on Tuesday, Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann, on the disabled list because of a sore right elbow, allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits in 3 1/3 innings for Class A Potomac. He struck out six batters and walked one.

Zimmermann may have another rehab start or pitch in Major Leagues later in the week.  


Just 3 1/3 innings? I hope that is merely a planned amount of time. I am just so scared that it is something more serious that just soreness in the elbow. Six K’s is really nice, even though it is A ball batters he was facing. Lets keep our fingers crossed that nothing more is wrong with him other than soreness.

He got hit by a line drive in the upper leg
