Jordan Zimmermann suffers bruised pitching shoulder
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann suffered a bruised throwing shoulder Saturday when he got hit by a line drive off the bat of Casey McGehee, reports the Washington Post. Zimmermann narrowly avoided being struck in the face.

"It happened so fast, I don't even think my reaction was fast enough to do anything," he said. "It just happened to be that shoulder was in the right spot in the right time."

Zimmermann said his shoulder is sore but he doesn't think it will affect him going forward. It's unclear if he'll make his next scheduled start against the Marlins.

Jordan Zimmermann wins 13th game Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann picked up a quality start Saturday against the Marlins.

Zimmermann allowed two runs, one earned, on five hits over six innings. He struck out four and did not issue any walks during the outing. Zimmermann’s first run came in the first inning. With men on first and second, Zimmermann gave up a run-scoring single to Justin Bour. He would escape the inning without allowing any more damage. His second run would be unearned due to a couple of errors. Reed Johnson hit a double during the fourth inning, but managed to score due to throwing errors by both Denard Span and Zimmermann. 

Zimmermann improved to 13-5 with the win. He’ll take on the Marlins in his next start.
