Photos: Zimmerman's Rehab Start at Potomac

Posted by Cheryl Nichols | Tuesday, June 07, 2011 | , , , , | 1 comments »

Washington Nationals All-Star third baseman Ryan Zimmerman made his second rehab start tonight when the Potomac Nationals hosted the Frederick Keys at Pfitzner Stadium.

Zimmerman went 2-for-3 with double and single wearing number 20 on his P-Nats jersey. He didn't see much action at third base, however, handled the two ground balls that he did see.

This was only the second time that Zimmerman has played for the P-Nats. Back in 2008 he played two games at Lewis-Gale Field in Salem, VA against the Red Sox as he recovered from a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

The Nats third baseman is returning from surgery on May 3rd to repair a torn abdominal muscle. Zimmerman was hitting .357 with a home run and four RBI in eight games before the injury.

Zimmerman made his first rehab appearance yesterday afternoon in Hagerstown and went 2-for-2 with a walk, double, triple, and an RBI. See his post-game quotes and photos.

Thank you to reader Adam Morgan  for sharing his photos from Zimmerman's rehab start in Woodbridge tonight.

    "He didn't see much action at third base, however, handled the two ground balls that he did see."

    Not true. Zimmerman misplayed the first ball hit to him in the second inning.
