Report: Ryan Zimmerman could be back in action Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman could return to the lineup as early as Saturday in Miami, per the Washington Post.

Zimmerman has been recovering from a hamstring injury that has prevented him from playing since July 22. He has had just 195 at-bats in 2014.


Ryan Zimmerman set to play simulated game Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Ryan Zimmerman tests hamstring running the bases Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) Nationals outfielder Ryan Zimmerman took full batting practice Friday while also taking grounders, throwing on the field and running the bases at about 60 percent, the Washington Post reports.

"[He] didn’t have any issues," manager Matt Williams said. "He turned all the bags, started and stopped, and did all the things that are required by this step."

Zimmerman is expected to continue a similar program this weekend before flying to Florida to face live pitching in the instructional league. While he doesn't have a specific timetable for his return, he is on track to make it back to action during the regular season, provided he doesn't suffer a setback.


Ryan Zimmerman will get some instructional league work in Florida


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman is tentatively scheduled to go to the instructional league in Viera, Fla., sometime next week, per MLB.com on Thursday. Zimmerman has been sidelined since July 22 with a hamstring injury.

Ryan Zimmerman takes batting practice Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman took batting practice Tuesday for the first time since suffering a strained hamstring, MLB.com reports.

Zimmerman's biggest hurdle to clear before returning is running, and before he can do that at full speed, he won't have a timetable to return to action. He's been sidelined since July 22 with the injury.


Ryan Zimmerman making progress, still awaiting clearance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman continues to make progress from a strained hamstring, but he still has not been cleared to participate in baseball activities, reports MLB.com Friday.

Zimmerman has been able to increase his workload as far as running goes, but has still been limited to running on an anti-gravity treadmill that adjusts for 90 percent of his body weight. Manager Matt Williams told MLB.com he still is not sure when Zimmerman will be able to begin playing catch or swing a bat, as he still has to run on his full weight and get through agility drills.

"If he sidesteps one of them and gets hurt again, we're definitely going to lose him," Williams said. "We have to make sure that he accomplishes all the goals in front of him first and then we'll get to baseball stuff."

Zimmerman has been out since July 23 with a serious Grade 3 strain of his right hamstring.

Ryan Zimmerman to 'ramp up' throwing sessions


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman will "ramp up" his throwing sessions, according to MLB.com.

Zimmerman threw for the first time Thursday, and did not report any issues with his hamstring Friday. Manager Matt Williams said Zimmerman was "on his way" back. Zimmerman hit .282/.345/.456 over 195 at-bats prior to tearing his hamstring. 


Ryan Zimmerman able to throw Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman was able to throw Thursday, according to The Washington Post.

Zimmerman participated in a light throwing session prior to Thursday's game. He plans to repeat the drill from different distances depending on how his hamstring responds. Manager Matt Williams said it was a small step in Zimmerman's return to action. "It’s part of the strengthening process and getting him back to some baseball activity and working through that," Williams said. "That’s the early stages of it but it’s a step for sure."

Zimmerman has been working on an anti-gravity treadmill over the past weeks. He'll have to hit, run at full speed and run the bases before he returns. The last of which will be the most difficult according to Williams because Zimmerman "has to react and turn and create different angles." 

Williams told reporters Wednesday that he believes Zimmerman will return in September.

(8/20/2014) Nationals manager Matt Williams believes infielder Ryan Zimmerman will return this season, according to The Washington Post

Still no timetable for Ryan Zimmerman


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) There's still no timetable for Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman's return, according to MLB.com.

Zimmerman has been able to work out on an underwater treadmill, but that's it. There is no timetable for Zimmerman to begin baseball activities at this time. Zimmerman has been out since July 22 with a hamstring tear. While he wants to get back on the field, Zimmerman acknowledged that he has to be careful with the injury. 


Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2014) So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.

Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.

I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.

I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.
