Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Working to improve launch angle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zimmerman has been working with Daniel Murphy and hitting coach Rich Schu to change the launch angle of his swing, The Washington Post reports.

The 32-year-old first baseman could end up being a poster child for the use of newer stats like exit velocity and launch angle if he can find a way to elevate the ball more in 2017. Zimmerman produced the worst OPS of his career last season due to his inability to get consistent loft when he made contact, but his elite exit velocity suggested he's still got the juice in his bat to do some damage if he can make the necessary adjustments. Murphy turned his career around a couple of years ago by changing his launch angle, and the Nats are hoping he can pass on his secrets to Zimmerman. Even so, he's got a lot to prove this year, so the veteran remains an endgame dart in most fantasy formats rather than a player you can rely on to contribute.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Needs to elevate ball in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zimmerman's poor performance at the plate in 2016 can be traced to his inability to get the ball in the air, MLB.com's Mike Petriello reports.

The veteran slugger finished last season 12th in exit velocity at 93.7 mph but 150th in launch angle at 7.9 degrees, indicating that while Zimmerman was regularly hitting the ball hard, he was also mostly hitting it on the ground. If he can tweak his swing to add some more loft, he could rebound in a big way, but it's fair to ask whether the shoulder issues that forced his move to first base have also contributed to his inability to elevate the ball. Keep a very close eye on his performance this spring -- especially whether he's hitting more line drives and fly balls -- before you take a chance on adding Zimmerman to your fantasy roster.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmerman is not in Friday's lineup against the Marlins, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

After reaching base twice Thursday, Zimmerman will take a seat for the second time in the last three games, as the NL East champion Nationals don't have much left to play for in the final series of the regular season. Clint Robinson will get the start at first base in his place and bat sixth.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to CSN's Chase Hughes.

Zimmerman recorded two hits in three of his last six games, but the veteran will get a day to rest with the Nationals playing only for playoff positioning at this point. Clint Robinson will get the start at first base Wednesday in Zimmerman's place.

Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zimmerman is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Zimmerman has notched a .286/.348/.524 line over the last seven games, but he had a rough time at the plate Saturday as he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. In his absence, Clint Robinson will start at first base and hit fifth.
