Ryan Zimmerman won't have enough time to return this season from a strained oblique, a frustrating end to another injury-plagued season.

Zimmerman won’t return from oblique strain

ATLANTA — It comes as no surprise at this point, but Ryan Zimmerman won’t have enough time to return from a strained oblique muscle to play before the end of the season. Sidelined for three weeks with the ailment, Zimmerman has been trying to get himself feeling well enough to return to the field before…

Bryce Harper’s emergence is overshadowed by Nationals teammates’ injuries

No club in baseball means more to the sport than the New York Yankees, World Series champions 27 times over, a heady number for a franchise that is pursuing just one. So regardless of the Yankees’ current incarnation, a visit from New York is a chance to measure your own team, and when Ryan Zimmerman smoked a home run off the left field foul pole that provided a walk-off victory for the Nationals, the measure was this: On May 19, Washington pulled into a first-place tie with the New York Mets.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Ryan Zimmerman still sore; Reed Johnson nearing return

Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman seems less and less likely to return this season, still bothered by pain in the left oblique that’s kept him out since Sept. 7. Zimmerman injured the oblique against the Braves earlier this month, but because rosters expand in September, the Nationals did not have to place him on the disabled list as he tried to recover enough to return.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Ryan Zimmerman takes light swings, but still not pain-free

By now, the Washington Nationals are used to waiting, their patience honed by necessity as player after player has worked his way back from injury. They’ve learned too well that recovery from many muscular injuries is incremental, a little-by-little process that requires constant testing and resting. As Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman tries to recover from a left oblique pull, that process is no different. The timing is.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Nationals have not considered shutting down Ryan Zimmerman; Danny Espinosa to undergo MRI

Including Monday night’s game against the Orioles, the Nationals have 13 games remaining, which is not much time for first baseman Ryan Zimmerman to work his way back into the lineup. He has not played since Sept. 7, when a left oblique injury he had suffered a few days earlier became too much to play through. He has not been able to swing a bat since, still working on core strength and fighting pain there. Given that, with so little time remaining, would the Nationals consider shutting him down for the rest of the season?Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Ryan Zimmermann still ‘day-to-day’ with left oblique soreness that has ‘gotten worse’

MIAMI — Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman insists he’s still day-to-day. He is battling left oblique soreness but remains hopeful it will subside enough to let him return soon.

Zimmerman, Taylor and Escobar all sit out vs. Mets
