In case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the attendance you have, the Washington Nationals are a bad baseball team. Jayson Werth isn’t a cure-all and who knows when Stephen Strasburg will pitch this year? In other words, they can’t afford to be missing any top talent for any prolonged period of time.
That’s why the news that the team has placed Ryan Zimmerman on the DL with an ab strain isn’t very good. Then again, you could argue that the worst that could happen is that they would lose games. They are already good at that even with their hot-hitting third baseman.
The ab strain first occurred in spring training, but he aggravated it the other day sliding into second base.
Zimmerman was hitting .357 with one HR and four RBI’s. He’s scheduled to come off the 15-day DL pretty much right on schedule, which is good news for the Nats.
