Ryan Zimmerman to miss six weeks with ab tear

ZimmermanRyan Zimmerman will require surgery for a rectus muscle in his abdomen after his rehab from an ab strain did not go as planned, reports CSN Washington.

Zimmerman had been out since April 10th with the injury after getting off to a hot start with a .357/.486/.536 line in 37 plate appearances. The blow is a significant one to a team that could use Zim's offense as they fight to stay over .500 the entire year; the Nats are currently at 12-13.. Now, the team will have to get by with a combination of Alex Cora, Jerry Hairston and Mike Morse at the hot corner.

Zimmerman's prognosis for a return is six weeks, although he will need to go on a rehab assignment that will lengthen his absence from the team. That puts his return at the earliest in mid- to late-June.

Drop him..6 weeks makes 8 & then he'll find some way to get hurt again.On a related note: Did Strasburg have the shortest, richest career since Ryan Leaf?

Should I drop him from my fantasy team or just bench him until he returns. How long does it really take to recover from this injury. Im a Mets fan so I know it takes longer than what they say-well at least from our team doctors anyway.

The one thing that I ask is, why wait until Tuesday to do the operation.  He has already been on the DL for 3 weeks and they decide now to have surgery? 

Cora and Hairston have done well with the glove since taking over for him at third, but the Nats surely miss his bat!!!
