Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman placed on DL

Updating a previous report, the Washington Nationals placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 20, due to his left hamstring injury. He aggravated the injury Wednesday in a road game against the Miami Marlins, and he has been sidelined ever since.

Fantasy Tip: Anthony Rendon is expected to start in Zimmerman's absence, and is a nice short-term addition in NL-only and deeper mixed formats. It is still to be determined how long Zimmerman will be sidelined, but hamstring injuries can be tricky, so fantasy owners should prepare for an absence longer than two weeks. Plus, Zimmerman is rather brittle, as this is the third straight season Zimmerman has been forced to the DL in the month of April.
