Ryan Zimmerman went 2-for-3 and played seven innings defensively last night at Single-A, but manager Jim Riggleman said the third baseman is “unlikely” to return from the disabled list before the Nationals end their 11-game road trip Sunday.
“We don’t want to push it,” Riggleman told Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. “I really want him to be 100 percent. I don’t want any setbacks.”
Zimmerman was 10-for-28 (.357) with a homer through eight games, but he’s been out since mid-April with an abdominal injury that required surgery.
