Ryan Zimmerman To Miss 4-6 Weeks

The Washington Nationals have announced that third baseman Ryan Zimmerman will miss the next 4-6 weeks of the 2014 season due to a fractured right thumb.

Zimmerman sustained the injury while diving back to second base on a pickoff play in the Nationals’ Saturday night loss to the Atlanta Braves.

A former National League All-Star, the 29-year-old Zimmerman was hitting .364/.405/.636 with three doubles, two home runs, and six runs batted in at the time of the injury.
