RYAN ZIMMERMAN RUMORS

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman making transition to 1st base

VIERA, Fla. (AP) The way Ryan Zimmerman sees it, change is not something to get all worked up about. After being the Washington Nationals opening day third baseman for the past nine seasons, the 30-year-old is making the transition to first base this spring. ''All good things come to an end,'' Zimmerman said Tuesday. ''Not too many people get to play as long as I have, and be as...

Will Rendon Have a Sophomore Slump?

Before he will even start his second full MLB season, Anthony Rendon has already usurped former Gold Glove winner and Face of the Franchise Ryan Zimmerman as starting third baseman, led the National League’s best team in WAR, and finished top 5 in MVP voting. He’s done this all while playing half of those games at a brand new position. The only question that seems to remain for...

Washington Nationals: Should Ryan Zimmerman play in October?

Washington Nationals acquire Asdrubal Cabrera

For weeks, it seemed that the best move for the Washington Nationals at the trade deadline would be no move at all. However, Ryan Zimmerman’s grade 3 hamstring strain caused the Nationals to need another infielder. After taking part in discussions with multiple clubs, including the New York Mets about a potential Daniel Murphy trade, Washington agreed to send Zach Walters to the...

Nats place Ryan Zimmerman on DL

After missing 44 games this season to a fractured thumb, the Washington Nationals have again placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman on the MLB disabled list.   This time Zim goes to the DL with a strained hamstring.  Zimmerman injured his hamstring last night in the sixth inning when he drove in a run on a ground ball.  After passing and stepping on first base, Zimmerman instantly felt discomfort...

Video: Ryan Zimmerman hits go-ahead HR in the 16th inning, makes spectacular catch

So Ryan Zimmerman picked a pretty good time to hit his first home run since returning from his DL stint, blasting a 2-run home run in the 16th inning to give the Nats a 4-2 lead in the longest game in Nationals team history. And then there was his amazing catch in the bottom of the inning; fittingly, Zim also caught the final out of the game, Nats win 4-2. Here's Zim's...

Ryan Zimmerman, left fielder

Well, guess it won't really be official until the first time Ryan Zimmerman trots out to left field for the real, live, Washington Nationals, but Saturday marked the debut of Ryan Zimmerman, left fielder, albeit for the Potomac Nationals. On Sunday, Zim saw his first defensive chances, which may or may not have led him to try to pull the plug on the whole experiment with another...

Ryan Zimmerman with a first baseman's mitt

A strange sight in the sixth inning of yesterday's Nats-Tigers Spring Training game: After 1,110 regular season games at third base for the Nationals in nine years (and 1 at SS in 2005), there was Ryan Zimmerman on the other side of the diamond, with a first baseman's mitt. Probably a good idea for Nats fans to start getting used to the sight. "I could go play there...
