Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson said he's not concerned with 3B Ryan Zimmerman's recent throwing errors at third base. "I don't think it's a mental problem. I think he's fine, and he's only going to get better," Johnson said. "This spring, I thought with the severity of that injury and the (shoulder) surgery in the offseason, and now throwing from a different angle, his arm is a lot stronger. It's just going to take a little while for him to get comfortable in his slot over there." Zimmerman said his errors are mostly mental, and it doesn't have anything to do with his surgically-repaired should. Johnson thinks it may take until June for Zimmerman to get comfortable with his new arm slot.
