Nationals place 1B Ryan Zimmerman (foot) on 15-day DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2015) The Nationals placed first baseman Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list Thursday due to plantar fasciitis.

Zimmerman had started the first 51 games for Washington before sitting out the second game of a doubleheader June 2 against the Blue Jays. However, he has been out of the lineup three times in the last eight games, including Monday and Wednesday.

The veteran infielder has just one hit in 22 at-bats in June (.045). He is batting .209 with five home runs and 34 RBI on the season.

Tyler Moore will likely start at first base while Zimmerman is on the disabled list.


Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman gets another day off Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/10/2015) Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman is getting another day off, as he is being held out of the lineup on Wednesday against the Yankees. Zimmerman has just one hit this month as his season-long struggles at the plate continue. 

After not getting a day off in his first 51 games this season, Wednesday will be the third time in the last six games that Zimmerman will start on the bench. Zimmerman has also been hampered with a bout of plantar fasciitis in his left foot all year. Manager Matt Williams said he would try to get Zimmerman off days every now-and-then.

"He hasn’t made mention to me or to us that it’s bothering him when he swings," Williams said, per The Washington Post. "I can see numerous times where he’s lined out and really hasn’t hit with any luck to speak of. That contributes to it, too. He is the prime example. If he gets good pitches to hit and swings at balls on the plate and up the zone, then he’s productive. And lately, he hasn’t been doing that. That’s part of a struggle if you’re going through a struggle. He’ll get out of that, too, and start driving balls to right-center field as he always does. First and foremost, we want to make sure he’s physically good."

Tyler Moore will get the start at first base in the series-finale on Wednesday.


Nationals slumping 1B Ryan Zimmerman not panicking


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman has been benched just twice all year, but when they both come during a six-game stretch, you figure he's struggling.

And he is. Zimmerman is on a 1-for-21 slide. Matt Williams figured moving him to the No. 2 spot in the lineup Friday might break him loose, but he went 1-for-9 in the next two games. His slash line now sits at a weak .213/.270/.353. His OPS is more than 200 points below what he boasted entering the year.

Zimmerman, however, is not panicking. He is also not blaming the plantar fasciitis that has had his left foot ailing since mid-April.

"I think I've been in this situation before, and it's a long season," he told MLB.com. "...Things will change. Everyone always has something to deal with, so that's not an excuse. If there's a point where it was hindering me, then I shouldn't play."


Tyler Moore replaces Ryan Zimmerman at first for Nationals


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) First baseman Ryan Zimmerman is out of the Nationals' starting lineup for just the second time this season. 

Both of Zimmerman's rests have come in the last six games. He's replaced at first by Tyler Moore

Moore will bat seventh in the lineup. 


With Yunel Escobar sidelined, Nats tweak starting lineup on Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar was not in the starting lineup again for Saturday's game against the Cubs. As a result, manager Matt Williams started Clint Robinson in left field, and moved Ryan Zimmerman to the No. 2 hole in the order, followed by Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon at cleanup.

Escobar has now missed back-to-back games after suffering a wrist injury while checking his swing during Thursday's contest. He is expected to rest again on Sunday and will try to test his wrist by taking light swings over the weekend, per the Washington Post. He is hitting .316/.376/.389 with two home runs and 14 RBI in 190 at-bats.


1B Ryan Zimmerman moves to second in Nationals' lineup


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) First baseman Ryan Zimmerman is batting in the No. 2 hole Friday for the Nationals for just the second time this season as Washington juggles its lineup in search of offense. 

Zimmerman hit second on April 27 but has spent the majority of the season in the five-hole for the Nationals. He has just four hits in his last 37 at-bats. 

"I think the top of the lineup will help because he’ll get more turnaround and have more at-bats sooner and take the pressure off hitting behind Bryce and relax," hitting coach Rick Schu said, per The Washington Post.

Anthony Rendon, fresh off the disabled list, will hit fourth, while Wilson Ramos returns from a right thumb injury to bat fifth. 


Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman not starting in Game 2 of DH


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/2/2015) Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman is finally getting a day off. Zimmerman is being held out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays. The 30-year-old was hitless in three at-bats in Game 1, though he did drive in a run with a sacrifice fly.

Getting his first day off this season, Zimmerman had started each of the Nationals' first 51 games. But he has really struggled at the plate. He's batting just .162 (6 for 37) over his last 10 games.

Tyler Moore is drawing the start at first and hitting clean-up in the nightcap on Tuesday.


Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman still stuck in slump at the plate


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman's struggles continued on Wednesday. Zimmerman was held hitless for the third straight game, as the Nationals beat the Cubs 3-0. 

Zimmerman hasn't scored a run since May 19. Over his last 10 contests, Zimmerman is hitting just .147 (5 for 35), though he does have a home run in that span. He has started every game for the Nationals this season, so a day off in the near future could do him well. 


Ryan Zimmerman cranks out walk-off homer for Nationals Tuesday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman came through with a two-out, 10th-inning home run Tuesday to hand the Nationals a walk-off victory over the Yankees.

It was Zimmerman’s 10th walk-off homer of his career.

"He's not a real emotional guy. He just doesn't get caught up in the moment and try to do too much," Nationals reliever Drew Storen said about Zimmerman. "Obviously, more times than not, it works out pretty well for him."

The long ball came off of Yankees closer Andrew Miller, becoming the first runs the left hander has allowed all season.


Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman hits second HR in past 3 games


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman hit his fourth home run of the season during Monday night's 11-1 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Zimmerman hit a three-run homer in the first inning, which drove in Yunel Escobar and Jayson Werth. This is Zimmerman's second home run in his past three games. It's also the fifth game in a row he's recorded at least one hit. 

Zimmerman finished Monday's game 1 for 2 and also drew a walk. He now holds a slash line of .236/.293/.417. 


Nationals' Williams on Zimmerman: 'The timing's starting to come'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman went 5 for 12 with a double, a home run and five RBI in his team's three-game sweep of the Braves last weekend, and though he's seemingly emerging from a slump in which he hit .217/.277/.380 in April, he said he's remained consistent in his approach, the Washington Post reports.

"You know it’s kind of funny because my average obviously isn’t what I want it to be, but I feel good at the plate," Zimmerman said. "Usually when you’re having success and the numbers look like what they look like, you’re struggling, you feel lost. But honestly all season I felt great. Anyone hitting two-something always says they line out and make excuses, but I’ve just got to keep doing what I’ve been doing. Keep with my routine that I’ve done for my whole career and trust that, like it has in the past, it’ll get back to where it’s supposed to be."

Zimmerman opened May with a hit in three straight games and has posted a .273/.306/.424 line in 33 at-bats this month.

"He’s using the whole field," manager Matt Williams said. "He’s catching breaking balls out front like he did [Saturday] and hit a homer and staying through the ball and driving runs for us. He’s gonna get opportunities. There’s lots of opportunity for him to do that, and he’s a proven guy in that regard. I’m glad for him that it’s starting to come for him."

Zimmerman missed much of last season while recovering from an injury, something that Williams believes contributed to his slow start.

"You miss most of last year and it’s not like it’s riding a bike," Williams said. "You just don’t pick it up again. So the timing’s starting to come."


Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman hits first homer in almost a month


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The home run was Zimmerman's first since April 13.

Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar hits third on Wednesday vs. Marlins


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/6/2015) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar hit from the No. 3 position in manager Matt Williams' lineup on Wednesday. It was the first time this season that Escobar hit third in the batting order, as Williams shuffled the order a bit for the matinee matchup against the Marlins.

Escobar continues to hit well in 2015, though he did go hitless in three at-bats on Tuesday.

Shortstop Ian Desmond was moved up to the second spot in the lineup, while Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman returned to their normal spots, batting fourth and fifth respectively on Wednesday.
