Zimmerman (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Manager Dave Martinez said last week that Zimmerman would be activated "soon," but the tail end of his recovery apparently didn't move as quickly as expected. The 34-year-old has been sidelined due to plantar fasciitis since July 21 and should be ready to rejoin the Nationals after a handful of games in the minors.
Zimmerman (foot) is going to be activated "soon" according to manager Dave Martinez, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
He is running at 75-80 percent, and has been hitting and taking groundballs. Once Zimmerman can run without restrictions, he will either head out on a brief rehab assignment or just join the big-league club right away.
Zimmerman (foot) jogged around the bases prior to Monday's game against the Giants, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Zimmerman has been on the injured list since July 22 due to plantar fasciitis, though it's good to see him taking part in some running, even if it's not at full speed just yet. The Nationals have yet to provide a timetable for the first baseman's return.
Zimmerman (foot) took 15-to-20 swings Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
This marks the first time Zimmerman took swings since landing back on the injured list July 22 with a recurrence of plantar fasciitis. While the veteran first baseman is trending in the right direction, an updated timetable for his return likely won't emerge until he's cleared to resume running.
Zimmerman was placed on the 10-day injured list with plantar fasciitis on Monday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
The move is no surprise after the veteran left Sunday's game against the Braves with a recurrence of the injury that cost him two months earlier in the season. He also battled the problem back in 2015. The Nationals have yet to give a target date for his return, but given his history with the injury, it's unlikely to be a short absence. Matt Adams and Howie Kendrick will split time at first base in his absence.
Zimmerman (foot) is not starting Monday against the Rockies.
Zimmerman wasn't expected to play after leaving Sunday's game against the Braves with a recurrence of the plantar fasciitis which cost him two months earlier in the season. The results of his MRI are not yet known, and he's yet to be placed on the injured list, but it certainly wouldn't be a surprise to see a move coming soon. Matt Adams starts at first base in his absence.
Zimmerman (foot) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Zimmerman missed around two months earlier this season with the same issue, though the Nationals won't know the extent of his injury until the results of his MRI return. Matt Adams and Howie Kendrick would see more playing time at first base if Zimmerman is forced to miss an extended period.

Zimmerman is not starting Saturday against the Royals.
Zimmermann sits after starting the last two games at first base. Matt Adams gets the call in his absence.
Zimmerman went 3-for-6 with three doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Friday's extra-innings loss to the Royals.
His RBI in the seventh inning gave Zimmerman 1,000 for his career, and he became only the 43rd player in MLB history to reach that milestone while collecting them all for the same team -- with Ryan Braun being the only other active member of that club. Zimmerman is 7-for-21 in five games since coming off the injured list, but Friday's barrage of doubles were his first extra-base hits in that time.
Zimmerman is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins.
Zimmerman played two games in a row as a designated hitter immediately after returning from a long absence due to a foot injury, but he's since sat for two of the last three games. Matt Adams gets the start at first base.
Zimmerman is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Detroit, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
Zimmerman served as the designated hitter the first two games of the series after being activated off the injured list, but he'll take a seat for the finale. Howie Kendrick will be the DH on Sunday while Matt Adams starts at first base.
Zimmerman (foot) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Zimmerman has been out since late April due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot and has been playing in rehab games at Double-A Harrisburg over the past week. The 34-year-old struggled while playing through the injury with a .213/.302/.373 slash line in 22 games prior to landing on the IL. Zimmerman potentially faces a short leash if he continues to struggle, with Matt Adams and Howie Kendrick both performing well this season.
Zimmerman (foot) played nine innings for Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports
The veteran first baseman has gone just 3-for-16 in five rehab games for Harrisburg without an extra-base hit, but he seems ready to handle a regular workload once he rejoins the Nats. Zimmerman remains on track to be activated for this weekend's series against the Tigers.
The Nationals haven't outlined a timeline for Zimmerman's (foot) activation from the 10-day injured list, but he's expected to be reinstated prior to the team's weekend series in Detroit, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
ZImmerman is scheduled to appear in the third game of his rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Monday, after which the Nationals may provide more clarity on his next step. Given that the first baseman is only scheduled to play seven innings Monday and manager Dave Martinez previously noted that Zimmerman will need to play a full nine-inning game before returning from the IL, the 34-year-old will likely stick around in Harrisburg for another day or two. Since the Nationals will be playing in an American League park during the upcoming week, Martinez will have the luxury of easing Zimmerman back as the club's designated hitter after a prolonged bout with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
