Ryan Zimmerman could be back with the Nationals by Tuesday

Earlier, Aaron Gleeman wrote about Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman starting a rehab assignment with Single-A Potomac. What wasn’t initially clear was how long it would take for Zimmerman to return to the Nats’ lineup. CSN Washington’s Mark Zuckerman provides us a goal and it’s a lot sooner than we would have anticipated: Tuesday.

Zuckerman writes that the Nationals’ coaches and manager Matt Williams could use Monday’s off-day to travel to Woodbridge and watch Zimmerman in person. If all goes well, he could be activated in time for Tuesday’s series opener with the Phillies.

Zimmerman broke his thumb in mid-April and was initially expected to be out four to six weeks. In the meantime, the team has explored using him not only at third base, but at first base and in the outfield as well, mitigating some of the day-to-day grind of being a third baseman.

    My current fantasy roster needs him back, so… excellent.

    Gotta see this cat in woodbridge while he’s there! (Stadiums about 3 miles from my house, since im sure you were wondering).

    Pryce Hopper is the best player in history.. I saw a clip of him on MLBtv where he’s playing with Ted Williams and Babe Ruth, waving Fisk’s homer fair, etc etc. I was watching on TV when Bryce Hopper made that spectacular play running face first into the wall at Dogger stadium. Willie Mays < Pryce Hopper. Ryan Zipperman? When he's not throwing his balls into the digout he's just a loyal sideman to the Hop.
