Nats’ Zimmerman ready for rehab assignment
Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, on the disabled list because of an abdominal strain, played in his second extended Spring Training game, playing four innings and going 0-for-4.
After the game, Zimmerman went home to Washington DC and will begin a rehab assignment for Class A Hagerstown starting Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET. The news means that Zimmerman will be a teammate of outfielder Bryce Harper for a few games.
Zimmerman has missed more than a month because of the abdominal problems. He is hoping to return to the Nationals during their next homestand, which starts June 14th against the Cardinals.
