Ryan Zimmerman

  1. Cortisone injection saved Ryan Zimmerman’s season

    Ryan Zimmerman was struggling to play through a shoulder injury and hitting just .218 with three homers and a .590 OPS in 55 games through June 23. The next day the Nationals third baseman got a cortisone injection in his shoulder and since then he’s been on fire. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com broke down the…

  2. John Lannan replaces Strasburg, combines on shutout

    Sep 12, 2012, 10:49 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals' Lannan pitches to New York Mets in MLB game in New York

    John Lannan’s return to Washington’s rotation was a very good one, as he pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday and combined with five relievers on a 2-0 shutout of the Mets. Tonight was supposed to be Stephen Strasburg‘s final start of the season, but he was shut down five days early after struggling against the…

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

  4. The Nationals could still make a run without Stephen Strasburg

    The Nationals enter today’s action with the best record in baseball at 85-53. Yet with the attention given to the unique situation involving the shutdown of Stephen Strasburg, one would think they would be doomed without him. That’s just not the case. And it’s really a discredit to a well-balanced ballclub. Nationals starters are first…

  5. Bryce Harper and his “ferocious brand of baserunning”

    Sep 7, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Last night’s benches-clearing scuffle between the Nationals and Cubs got all the headlines, but before things got ugly when Bryce Harper was nearly hit by a pitch in the sixth inning the 19-year-old rookie showed once again that he’s perhaps MLB’s most aggressive baserunner. Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post did a great job describing…

  6. Nationals clinch winning record for first time since moving to D.C.

    The Nationals topped the Cubs 2-1 this afternoon at Nationals Park for their 82nd victory of the season. This guarantees them their first winning record since moving from Montreal to D.C. for the 2005 season. The club went 81-81 in their first season in D.C. and 80-81 last year. Ross Detwiler was excellent this afternoon,…

  7. Ryan Zimmerman is on fire since getting a cortisone shot

    Jul 23, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    cortisone shot

    A cortisone injection has saved Ryan Zimmerman‘s season. As of June 23 he was struggling to play through right shoulder problems, hitting just .218 overall, and in the midst of a 13-for-78 (.167) slump. The next day Zimmerman got a cortisone shot in his ailing shoulder and he’s been on a ridiculous tear ever since.…

    Dark Knight Rises

    Pardon me if I seem discombobulated, but I’m suffering from weekend movie whiplash. On Friday night I saw “The Dark Knight Rises.” Yesterday I saw “Safety Not Guaranteed.” If you can find me two movies out right now that are more dissimilar in terms of tone, themes, budget and every other single other relevant measure,…

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Phillies 9, Mets 2: Cliff Lee stood to lose yet another one, as he and the Phillies were down 2-0 entering the seventh, but three runs in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth innings saved his bacon. First win of the year for Lee. Marlins 7, Brewers 6: On Tuesday Milwaukee beat Miami in…

  10. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and higlights

    Ramon Santiago, Austin Jackson

    It was a really rough weekend for people in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. Storms, trees down, power outages and intense heat made it for a really crappy weekend. We were fairly lucky here at Chez Craigy. The power was out for only about 24 hours before coming back Saturday evening.…

  11. Nationals activate Mark DeRosa, put Xavier Nady on DL

    Jun 25, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    derosa ap

    Washington has activated Mark DeRosa from the disabled list after the oft-injured veteran missed the past two months with a strained oblique muscle. DeRosa went 1-for-11 with four walks during a brief minor-league rehab assignment at Single-A and really struggled before the DL stint, so he’s unlikely to see much action unless Ryan Zimmerman‘s shoulder…

  12. Ryan Zimmerman has pain in shoulder, may need a break

    Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com’s excellent “Nats Insider” page provides the money quote: “I’ve been hitting for a while here [in the big leagues], and I don’t miss fastballs the way I’ve been missing fastballs,” Ryan Zimmerman said Saturday after watching his batting line fall to .218/.285/.305 . “So it’s frustrating, but I’ve just got to continue…

  13. Jayson Werth aims to return from broken wrist by August 1

    Jun 20, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    Six weeks ago Jayson Werth was given a 9-12 week recovery timetable for his broken left wrist and he’s basically still on that same track, with manager Davey Johnson saying yesterday that the Nationals hope to have the outfielder back around August 1. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that Werth is no longer wearing a…

  14. Daisuke Matsuzaka surrenders four runs in season debut

    Jun 10, 2012, 9:56 AM EDT

    dice-k reuters

    Daisuke Matsuzaka‘s first start back from Tommy John surgery Saturday against the Nationals served as a kind of microcosm for his major league career: he was sharp at times, but inconsistency did him in. Dice-K opened with a perfect first frame, fanning Steve Lombardozzi and Ryan Zimmerman, and inducing a pop-up out of phenom Bryce Harper. The…

  15. Ryan Zimmerman sat because of shoulder soreness

    May 23, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    ryan zimmerman getty

    It was a “manager’s decision” at the time the lineups were set yesterday, but the reason Ryan Zimmerman sat for the Phillies-Nats game was shoulder soreness. This is somewhat scary given that Zimmerman has spent a lot of time on the DL due to shoulder problems. It’s said to be minor — Zimmerman wanted to…

  16. Ryan Zimmerman scratched, a ‘manager’s decision’

    May 22, 2012, 6:57 PM EDT

    Ryan Zimmerman

    Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman was a late scratch Tuesday in what was termed a “manager’s decision” by a team spokesman. The spokesman said Zimmerman might be available to pinch-hit. Chad Tracy is starting at third base in his place. Zimmerman’s absence bodes well for Roy Halladay to continue his dominance of the Nationals. He’s…

  17. Wilson Ramos exits game with serious-looking knee injury

    May 12, 2012, 10:24 PM EDT

    wilson ramos getty

    Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos got a cleat caught in the ground while attempting to field a passed ball in the seventh inning Saturday against the Reds, causing his right knee to twist in an unnatural way. Ramos kept all weight off the knee as he was carried — by a trainer on each side —…

  18. Angels and Nationals should consider a smaller trade

    May 11, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Alberto Callaspo

    Many are trying to set the Nationals up with Peter Bourjos after they lost another starting outfielder to injury in Jayson Werth over the weekend. That’d be nice and all, but the artillery is lacking to pull it off. Instead, I’m thinking about a smaller deal here, if the two teams have in fact talked:…

  19. Another day, another lineup spot for Bryce Harper

    May 10, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Bryce Harper is on the move in the Nationals’ batting order again. Harper debuted as a No. 7 hitter, moved to the No. 3 spot after four games, shifted to the No. 2 spot for the past two games following Ryan Zimmerman‘s return, and is now batting No. 5 tonight. That makes four different lineup…

  20. Bryce Harper moves to the second spot in Nationals lineup

    May 8, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper joined Ken Griffey Jr., Andruw Jones, and B.J. Upton as the only 19-year-olds to bat third in a big-league game since 1980, but now he’s on the move in the Nationals’ lineup again. Harper, who debuted as a No. 7 hitter before shifting to the No. 3 slot, is batting No. 2 tonight…

  21. Ryan Zimmerman rejoins Nationals after disabled list stint

    May 8, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    ryan zimmerman getty

    As expected, the Nationals have activated Ryan Zimmerman from the disabled list after the third baseman missed 15 games with a shoulder injury. Zimmerman being placed on the DL is what motivated the Nationals to call up Bryce Harper, but obviously sending the 19-year-old phenom back to the minors ceased being an option almost immediately…

  22. UPDATE: Jayson Werth suffers broken left wrist

    May 6, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    11:30 p.m. EDT update: It was announced after the game Sunday that Werth had suffered a broken left wrist. He’ll see a specialist on Monday as the Nats go about determining whether he has any ligament damage. If it’s a simple break, then 6-8 weeks is probably the best-case scenario. If there’s more damage, then…

  23. Adam LaRoche scratched from lineup with right oblique soreness

    May 3, 2012, 7:02 PM EDT

    Adam LaRoche Getty

    The Nationals can ill afford another injury with Michael Morse and Ryan Zimmerman already on the disabled list, but they could be without Adam LaRoche for at least the next couple of days. According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, LaRoche was scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Diamondbacks due to soreness in his…

  24. Bryce Harper is batting third for the Nationals tonight

    May 3, 2012, 3:19 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Bryce Harper batted seventh in the Nationals’ lineup for each of his first four games, but manager Davey Johnson has decided to promote the 19-year-old to the No. 3 spot tonight. That’s where the best hitter on the team generally bats and obviously in time the Nationals expect Harper to be that guy, but to…

  25. Ryan Zimmerman not expected to return before Tuesday

    May 2, 2012, 7:22 PM EDT

    zim getty

    Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman (sore right shoulder) told reporters on Tuesday that he is aiming to return from the 15-day disabled list in time for Sunday night’s game against the division rival Phillies. But it’s just not going to happen. According to beat writer Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington’s Nats Insider, manager Davey Johnson…
