Ryan Zimmerman Injury Update: MRI Results 'Not Favorable' According To Davey Johnson

The Washington Nationals beat the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night, but they did so without their star third baseman and face of the franchise Ryan Zimmerman. He missed his second straight game with shoulder issues, and he reportedly got an MRI on that injured wing. The results aren't very good, according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington post, via Baseball Nation.

"At this point, as far as I know, it’s not real favorable," Manager Davey Johnson said. "It looks like he’s going to need to some more rest. We’ll just have to wait and see."

The Nationals planned to wait at least until Wednesday to make any roster moves. If Zimmerman lands on the disabled list, Johnson said he would use Mark DeRosa, Chad Tracy and Steve Lombardozzi to replace Zimmerman at third base.

Despite their impressive record out of the gate, the Nationals have been snake bit by injuries to some of their best players; and this injury to Ryan Zimmerman seems to follow the pattern set forth by Michael Morse and Drew Storen. When Ryan Zimmerman was held out of the game on Saturday the Nats said that they didn't consider the injury serious and that he just needed a few days off. Now, those few days later, Zimmerman has gotten and MRI and the results are not good. It's the exact same thing that happened to Morse and Storen. Hopefully Zimmerman's prognosis is better.
