Good news on the Ryan Zimmerman front.

According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, the injured third baseman reported feeling “great” after playing catch Tuesday afternoon at Nationals Park and is aiming to return to the starting lineup for Sunday night game’s against the division rival Phillies (which is going to be broadcast on ESPN).

Zimmerman was placed on the disabled list (retroactive to April 21) due to right elbow soreness.

The 27-year-old owns a .224/.324/.345 batting line, one homer and seven RBI in 15 games this season.

    So do they keep Harper up? I’d guess, yes.

      I think they’ll give him a little more time to show what he can do. He hasn’t performed poorly or fantastically yet, and average is not a bad thing in this case.

        Yeah. And they are doing soooo good with him in the line up. He’s really helping them.

    I doubt they send harper back right away. Especially since he hasnt played bad offendsive wise, and defencivly hes been fantastic

      Most likely, Tyler Moore will go back.

    An article on MLB’s site quoted Rizzo as saying he’ll stick around for now. I suppose as long as he’s productive, he’s here for good.

    Send him down, bring him back in July. Or whatever the date past super two status

      I thought the new bargaining agreement was supposed to eliminate that incentive, wasn’t it? Not saying it did, but I thought that was one of the MLBPA goals.
