Ryan ZimmermanRyan Zimmerman will be headed to the disabled list before tomorrow's game  against the Phillies, CSNWashington.com's Mark Zuckerman reports.

Zimmerman has a strained abdominal muscle that kept him out of Sunday's game against the Mets. The move will be retroactive to Sunday, meaning he will be eligible to return on April 25.

Zimmerman struggled with the same injury in the spring and had appeared to be playing in pain since opening day.

Jerry Hairston Jr. and Alex Cora could serve as replacements for Zimmerman at third base while he's out. The team will officially make the move tomorrow.

I knew Werth was begging to come back to the Phillies but had no clue Zimmerman wanted to be with the Phillies that bad

Awesome, another one of my fantasy 3B's on the DL (Longoria, also) Now I'm gotta start Jhonny Peralta, oh joy.

Unfortunately, the most surprising thing about this story is the realization that Alex Cora is still in the major leagues.

Wow !!! Thanks for the correction. I thought that somehow Zim was traded and I missed it. Hello old timer can you say alzheimer's ?? Hell I'm not even sure I can spell it. Anyway I'm glad he isn't with the Phillies, but sorry he went down. What the hell is going on with all the oblique injuries the past few years. Is it me or does there seem to be a lot of them? If Zim had to get hurt I guess it is best that it happened now rather then the middle of the year when the Nats are making their move on last place

What a shame - off to a good start, too.  Is this team snake bit?
