Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman is scheduled to play in minor league rehab games at High-A Potomac on Tuesday and Wednesday and is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list for Friday’s series-opener against the Pirates.

This according to MLB.com’s Bill Ladson.

Zimmerman has been sidelined since April 17 with a left hamstring strain. He was batting .226/.311/.358 with one home run, two doubles and 11 RBI in 61 plate appearances before suffering the injury.

The Nationals will likely send Anthony Rendon back to Double-A Harrisburg when Zimmerman is officially added to the active 25-man roster. Rendon is hitting .167/.211/.222 in his first five major league games.

    DL stints don’t generally cure the yips

    Zimmerman needs to go to first. LaRoche is a strikeout machine who is just cashing checks at this point. Let Rendon get some ABs and settle in at third. That’s the future anyway. ALR’s crash just accelerates the process.
