Ryan Zimmerman could be Nationals' starting first baseman in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman has come to terms with his future role likely being as a full-time first baseman since Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper appear to be the long-term options at third base and left field, respectively, for Washington.

"Do I wish some of the injuries that I've had never happened so I can continue to play Gold Glove third base that I enjoy doing? Of course I do," Zimmerman said, per MLB.com. "But things happen. They are not easy decisions. It's not easy for me to say I have the possibility of moving from third base. It's reality."

If the Nationals choose to make Zimmerman the starting first baseman in 2015, then it doesn't appear the team will bring back incumbent first baseman Adam LaRoche, who has a mutual $15 million option for next season.

"Sometimes those things are tough. That's just how it is. We'll see what happens," Zimmerman said. "But I think it's more important to look at what [LaRoche] has done while he has been here, how much he has meant, not only to the players, but the fans and the organization. He is a great guy, never complains. He is a great teammate and a great player."

Jordan Zimmermann delivers no-hitter in season finale
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann no-hit the Marlins on the final day of the regular season, allowing one walk and striking out 10 while throwing 104 pitches in his team's 1-0 victory.

Zimmermann (14-5) picked up the first no-hitter in Nationals history despite some late drama, as the Marlins followed up a long out to deep center field by driving a ball to the gap in left center before left fielder Steven Souza made an outstanding play on a dive to haul in the final out. Zimmermann ends the regular season with 12 straight quality starts and an 8-0 record during that stretch. He owns a 2.66 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 182:29 K:BB ratio in 199 2/3 innings.
