Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman discusses shoulder problem

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (shoulder) said the shoulder pain he dealt with dramatically affected the way he threw the ball at third base. "It was obviously affecting me, but I couldn't really feel it," Zimmerman said. "It was so jammed up in there, I couldn't do things like I normally do." After undergoing surgery Oct. 25, no structural damage to his labrum or rotator cuff was found, although he had minor fraying in both. He also had a bone spur that was shaved down in his collarbone. The major damage was to Zimmerman's AC joint, which was nearly closed completely off. A cortisone shot during the season kept him from undergoing in-season surgery. He is currently four weeks into a rehab process expected to last eight weeks, and he's started core work, cardio and light weight lifting. Zimmerman will be able to throw in a couple weeks.
