Zim is a vet.  I get a rookie manager allowing a vet coming off a very, very good year to decide how he wants to prepare himself for the season, especially when he's had issues staying healthy and "easing in" makes some sense.  He didn't come out of the gates strong, so they have both said he's going to play more this Spring.  So what's the beef?  Because it's not the first couple of days?

Actually, he's been working for DoD and is testing the new "Stealth Zimmerman."  He's actually playing, but it does not show on electronic media.

Ryan Zimmerman, meanwhile, is not in the lineup as Davey Martinez had said he would be. Zimmerman has been sick the last few days, and though he reported to the ballpark this morning Martinez sent him home to rest (and not contaminate anyone else). With the Nationals going across the state to face the Red Sox in Fort Myers tomorrow, Zimmerman’s spring debut now is being targeted for Friday in nearby Jupiter.

Good day for Zimmerman to take a break, with the two and a half hour bus ride each way to JetBlue Park.

Who gets the first hit of the spring Zim or Harper?

Out again today, and that stinking no trade clause. This is why we shouldn't extend Rendon.

I 100% agree.

He's my least favorite Nat. Even behind Yam Gomez or whatever his name is.

Zimm doing drills today and scheduled to start tomorrow per Zuck (assuming his workout today goes OK).

Zimm and Strasburg are the only guys left from our first playoff team now IIRC.

Strasburg wasn't on the 2012 playoff roster.

I'm wondering if Martinez is rushing him back based on questions from fans and the media. Hope this isn't a mistake.

Rushing him back from sickness?   What's the mistake going to be?  He's going to barf on the field?

Or are you just being sarcastic?

You believe what the Nats or Zim say publicly about his status?
