Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) did some light throwing Thursday, Aug. 21, in order to test his injured hamstring. Zimmerman is still not close to returning and still needs to do some running and hitting before he is ready to return.
FANTASY TIP: There is no definite timetable for Zimmerman's return, but there is a chance he plays again this season. Owners should consider keeping him on their bench or disabled list in case he is able to play again in 2014.
