Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that Ryan Zimmerman fielded ground balls this morning and is hoping to return from a groin injury Friday.

If he can get back into the lineup by then that would leave five games remaining on the spring training schedule and manager Jim Riggleman told Zuckerman that the goal would be for Zimmerman to play in four of them.

Zimmerman was initially expected to miss just a few days when he suffered the groin injury on March 14, but a Friday return would come after 10 days on the sidelines.
