Zimmerman (foot) did some running Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Everything went well during Zimmerman's return to running, with the veteran noting that he wasn't as sore as he'd thought he'd be afterward. Zimmerman is expected to go through baseball activities Monday, after which a more concrete timetable for his return should emerge. According to Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic, if the veteran first baseman progresses without any setbacks this week, he could be back as soon as this weekend (the Nationals begin a three-game series with the Marlins at home Friday).
Zimmerman (foot) is close to running on the field, the last step prior to returning to the team, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports. Zimmerman took batting practice with the Nationals on Sunday and looks poised to reach another milestone in his recovery in the coming days. If he experiences no issues with his foot once he starts running again, Zimmerman may only need a brief rehab assignment before returning from the 10-day injured list.
Zimmerman (foot) will resume baseball activities within the next two days, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Zimmerman remained in Washington for the Nationals' 10-game road trip and reportedly made some progress in his return from plantar fasciitis, but that progress evidently didn't include any baseball activities. He remains without a clear return timeline. Howie Kendrick and Gerardo Parra have been serving as the team's first basemen with Matt Adams (shoulder) also sidelined.
Zimmerman (foot) will remain in Washington during the Nationals' 10-game road trip for rehab, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Zimmerman has no clear timeline to recover from his plantar fasciitis. He missed seven weeks due to the issue back in 2015 but has said that he doesn't expect to miss the same amount of time this year. Remaining home during the Nationals' road trip means he won't return before May 14.
Zimmerman said he's been dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot for "a couple weeks," Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Zimmerman said the issue got worse after he made a catch against the Rockies last week, resulting in his placement on the 10-day IL over the weekend. The veteran first baseman doesn't have a timeline for his recovery; he missed seven weeks due to a similar issue in 2015, though he's confident it's not as bad this time around. Look for Matt Adams to fill in at first base while Zimmerman is out.
