Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman to see time at 1B
Tue, 10 Dec 2013 15:35:16 -0800

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman will remain the everyday third baseman in 2014, but he will also move across the diamond and spend some time at first base. He'll take grounders at first in spring training, and it's a possible transition for a permanent position switch down the road. He could spell 1B Adam LaRoche against tough left-handed pitchers for 10 to 15 games in the season. "If that's best for the team, I'm willing to play over there," Zimmerman said. "I don't want to play 60 games over there. The way I played at the end of last season and the way my arm felt, I think third base is my best position and it gives our team the best chance to win. I feel like I'm the best third baseman that we have." Manager Matt Williams doesn't want Zimmerman playing first out of fear that his previous throwing woes will continue, but rather to give the club more versatility.
