Obviously one video of one fantastic off-balance throw by Ryan Zimmerman after a backhanded grab in Tuesday's spring training game against the Marlins probably isn't enough to restore confidence in Zim's ability to throw a baseball across the diamond. But it helps. Video above.
Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post had more on the lingering questions about Zim's ability to throw. Here's Zim:
"I feel like I’m right where I need to be. The whole
goal was to be ready by April 1. Today was finally a game where I got
some groundballs. I’ve been playing for a week or so and haven’t really
got much. It was nice to some chances today. It gets better each day." (Ryan Zimmerman, via Nationals Journal, 3/26/2013)
