News: Zimmerman (hamstring) had an MRI earlier this week that showed progress with his injury. As a result, he's been able to resume jogging, Dan Kolko of MASN reports. Impact: To this point, Zimmerman has been unable to resume swinging. His return appears to be a couple of weeks away, while the Nationals will have a tricky situation to deal with upon Zimmerman's return with the addition of Asdrubal Cabrera to the infield.(RotoWire, )

News: Zimmerman (hamstring) is expected to increase the intensity of his baseball activities this week, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Impact: While the news would seem to be encouraging on the surface, manager Matt Williams said Zimmerman remains a ways off hitting again, tempering most of the enthusiasm for an early-September return. When he does finally rejoin the team, Zimmerman may not be guaranteed a regular starting job. He struggled with his throws while playing third base prior to suffering the injury, and with all of the team's position players healthy at this time, Zimmerman may have to accept a role as an over-qualified pinch-hitter.(RotoWire, )

News: Zimmerman (hamstring) did some light throwing on the field prior to Thursday's game, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Throwing is the first small test for Zimmerman's ailing hamstring, but bigger hurdles await, namely running and hitting. While manager Matt Williams said Wednesday that Zimmerman might be able to return in September, in doing so he also suggested there's a real possibility he does not.(RotoWire, )

News: Nationals manager Matt Williams suggested that Zimmerman (hamstring) might be able to return in September, the Associated Press reports. Impact: Ultimately, he hasn't resumed baseball activities, and there doesn't appear to be a public timetable for that to occur. As a result, Zimmerman's return during the final five weeks of the season is still a questionable proposition.(RotoWire, )
