Nationals' Williams on Zimmerman: 'His athleticism is key for us'

(3/2/15) After playing most of his career at third base, Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman is set to serve as the team's regular first baseman in 2015, and the team has continued to be impressed with how quickly he's learning the position, Comcast SportsNet reports.

"His athleticism is key for us," manager Matt Williams said. "He catches everything. He doesn’t miss a ball."

Zimmerman's Monday workouts had a new twist, as the team timed him to see how long he takes to get to first base after the point of contact with the ball. He also continued his work on throwing to second base, specifically gauging the positioning of shortstop Ian Desmond.

"It’s just comfort level for him," Williams said. "I’m always impressed by his athleticism and what he can do with his glove. The challenge is going to be him being comfortable over there, and the throws to second base, because it’s just backwards."

Zimmerman hit .280/.342/.449 with five home runs and 38 RBI in 214 at-bats last season.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman putting in extra work at first base

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/15) Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman is putting in extra fielding work at first base this spring, according to The Washington Post

With Anthony Rendon entrenched at third, and Adam LaRoche now in Chicago, Zimmerman is expected to open the year as the team's starter at first base. Zimmerman saw some time at the position in 2014, but will put in extra work during camp in preparation for this year. 

"As part of his initial introduction into this spring, we’re just going over the basics of footwork, of positioning, of his thoughts on where he would like to play, what he can and can’t do, what he feels comfortable with," manager Matt Williams said. 

Williams added that he doesn't believe Zimmerman will see time in the oufield this season. As long as Zimmerman is healthy, he's expected to be the team's first baseman.

The 30-year-old Zimmerman hit .280/.342/.449 over 214 at-bats last year. 

Nats GM Mike Rizzo: Ryan Zimmerman 'definitely' full-time first baseman

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/14) Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Monday that Ryan Zimmerman is "definitely" the team's full-time first baseman in 2015.

Zimmerman played first base only four times last season. A hamstring injury kept limited him to 61 games in 2014, registering a .280 batting average with five homers and 38 RBI over 214 at-bats.

Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman back to full strength

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/14) Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman said he is back to full strength after being hobbled late in the season due to a Grade 3 hamstring strain, according to The Washington Post.

"It doesn’t hurt golfing or laying around the house," he said. "It’s good. I always have to continually change things because you have to evolve as you get older. It’s one thing I’ve realized. I’ll change some things up but I’ll be good to go."

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman likely to play first base in 2015

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/21/14) Nationals third baseman/outfielder Ryan Zimmerman will likely shift over to first base in 2015, MLB.com reports. He's currently resting his right hamstring after suffering a Grade 3 strain in July.

"I'm sure I'll talk to them soon or they will talk [to the media]," Zimmerman said. "I think Anthony [Rendon] is the future third baseman. Obviously, he played great there. He played some second and some third. If he goes into Spring Training knowing that he is playing third base, he has a chance to be a very good third baseman.

"Obviously, I love playing third base. But some of the injuries over the last two or three years made it tougher for me to be an above average third baseman. It's hard to accept that, but I think that's the truth. Sometimes, the truth hurts sometimes. But Anthony has a great chance to be very good over there. I could be an above average first baseman if I work at it during Spring Training and the rest of this offseason. But that's not just my decision. Obviously, I'll talk with [general manager] Mike [Rizzo] and Matt and see what their plans are. I'm sure we'll find out in the next week or two."

The Nationals have first base open due to the impending free agency of 2014 starter Adam LaRoche.
