Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman's injury not serious

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is dealing with a strained left hamstring, but manager Davey Johnson said it should only take around 10 days to heal completely. The team didn't want to risk Zimmerman hurting himself even worse by playing through it.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman has landed on the DL in April for three straight seasons now, so the Nats are wise to be cautious in this instance. That means that it wouldn't be a shocker to see Zimm stay out for longer than the 15 days. Either way, prospect Anthony Rendon is expected to be a short-term stop gap while Zimmerman is out. Expect Rendon to be sent back down to the minors eventually.
