RICHMOND, Va. – Washington Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman is well on his way to a return to the Nats’ roster.
On Friday night, he started a rehab assignment with the Double-A Harrisburg Senators who are in Richmond for a matchup with the Flying Squirrels.
Zimmerman, a product of Kellam High School and the University of Virginia, has been on the injured list since July 22nd due to a foot injury.
He’s in the midst of his 15th Major League Baseball season – all with the Washington Nationals. The fourth overall pick in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft is the Nats’ all-time career leader in hits, extra base hits, total bases, doubles, home runs and runs batted in.
