Nats GM Mike Rizzo: Ryan Zimmerman 'definitely' full-time first baseman
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Monday that Ryan Zimmerman is "definitely" the team's full-time first baseman in 2015.

Zimmerman played first base only four times last season. A hamstring injury kept limited him to 61 games in 2014, registering a .280 batting average with five homers and 38 RBI over 214 at-bats.

Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman back to full strength
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman said he is back to full strength after being hobbled late in the season due to a Grade 3 hamstring strain, according to The Washington Post.

"It doesn’t hurt golfing or laying around the house," he said. "It’s good. I always have to continually change things because you have to evolve as you get older. It’s one thing I’ve realized. I’ll change some things up but I’ll be good to go."

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman likely to play first base in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman/outfielder Ryan Zimmerman will likely shift over to first base in 2015, MLB.com reports. He's currently resting his right hamstring after suffering a Grade 3 strain in July.

"I'm sure I'll talk to them soon or they will talk [to the media]," Zimmerman said. "I think Anthony [Rendon] is the future third baseman. Obviously, he played great there. He played some second and some third. If he goes into Spring Training knowing that he is playing third base, he has a chance to be a very good third baseman.

"Obviously, I love playing third base. But some of the injuries over the last two or three years made it tougher for me to be an above average third baseman. It's hard to accept that, but I think that's the truth. Sometimes, the truth hurts sometimes. But Anthony has a great chance to be very good over there. I could be an above average first baseman if I work at it during Spring Training and the rest of this offseason. But that's not just my decision. Obviously, I'll talk with [general manager] Mike [Rizzo] and Matt and see what their plans are. I'm sure we'll find out in the next week or two."

The Nationals have first base open due to the impending free agency of 2014 starter Adam LaRoche.

Ryan Zimmerman 'hurt enough not to play' during NLDS
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman said his right hamstring wasn't strong enough for him to be a starter or even make an impact during the NLDS against the Giants, according to The Washington Post. Zimmerman went 1 for 4 (.250) with no RBI in four games against the Giants.

"Hurt enough not to play," Zimmerman said. "I think if it was good enough, I would have played. We would have maybe found a place to put me. This team was one of the best teams in the month of September. It’s hard to mess with something like that. We just didn’t get enough hits to win. That’s what got us."

Ryan Zimmerman: 'I'm not 100 percent'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman is resigned to the fact he will likely come off the bench during the NLDS against the Giants, according to The Washington Post. Zimmerman was limited to 61 games during the regular season due to a broken thumb and torn right hamstring.

"If I was 100 percent and knew I didn’t miss a ton of time, it would be a lot harder to accept," Zimmerman said. "I can honestly say I’m not 100 percent. It’s a tough question to answer. I feel like if I was 100 percent and had played all year, then, yeah, it would be really hard to accept. It’s tough. I really mean it when I say it: The goal is to win. Whatever gives us the best chance to win. Matt’s done a pretty good job of putting out whatever he thinks gives us the best chance to win all year. When it gets to this point of the year, that’s honestly what means the most."
