Here's video (via AllStarsPlus) of Ryan Zimmerman signing autographs for fans after the Nationals walk-off win on Saturday. His shoulder looked good there. Apparently that was Rick Ankiel laying on his horn at the end of the clip.
Zim, of course, was a late scratch on Saturday because of a sore shoulder.
So, we're trying to take a more positive, panic-free, approach to the news over the weekend of Zim's balky shoulder: It's nothing! The shoulder is fine! Nothing to worry about. No date with Dr. Andrews in the future! Zim back in the lineup Tuesday.
But will Zim be in Davey Johnson's lineup on Tuesday?
"It wasn't bad [Saturday] by any means. It's nice to have a rainout and not a doubleheader [the next day]. Since I'm only going to miss one game instead of two, I don't see any reason why I wouldn't play on Tuesday. So this kind of works out best." (Ryan Zimmerman, via Nationals.com, 4/23/2012)
