Zimmerman to be promoted?
« Topic Start: July 25, 2005, 05:38:48 PM »
Looks like the Nats were close to bringing ZImm up to fill in for Vinnie.
Guess we're getting almost desperate...

 Per Ladson at 8:45 pm last night:
-------------------------------------------------------------
If Castilla continues to have problems with his knee and has to go on the disabled list, don't be surprised if third baseman Ryan Zimmerman is promoted to the big leagues.

A baseball source said the Nationals were close to promoting Zimmerman last week.

Zimmerman, the Nationals' first-round pick in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, is already Gold Glove material and is not too bad with the bat. Entering Sunday's action, Zimmerman was hitting .267 with three home runs and 12 RBIs for Double-A Harrisburg.

The Nationals have already announced that Zimmerman is on the fast track to the big leagues.

Now is not the time to bring Zimmerman up... At best, during September roster expansion maybe, but please, Jim, don't mess up this kids career before it gets started. At least wait until September to give him a taste of the show...

I don't even wanna see him THIS season.

I don't want his arbitration clock started yet.

he's got an invite to ST next season built into his contract.  let him finish the season in AA.
