Zimmerman DL'ed

Ryan Zimmerman (abdominal strain) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.
Zimmerman originally suffered the injury during spring training and he aggravated it Saturday when he slid into second base. The Nats are hoping that he will be back in two weeks, but they can't say for sure. It's a major blow to the club and painful news for fantasy owners. Zim was sporting a 1.022 OPS, a home run, four RBI and seven walks through 37 plate appearances.

I am both happy and sad I drafted Pedro Alvarez as his backup in my other league :)

So Matt Holliday can have surgery and have something taken OUT of his abdomen and come back in less than a week, but Zimmerman needs a 2 week DL trip for a strain on his abdomen. Hmm...

And I felt bad for missing out on him during my draft. Too bad I ended up with Mark Reynolds.

Too bad the news came out just after my lineups locked for the week!

I'm glad I wasn't in a situation where I had to draft Zimmerman. I dealt with him last year, and the production has its nice stretches but he is such a bumps and bruises guy.
