Zimmerman rehab update

May 31, 2011, 11:48 PM EST

Ryan Zimmerman will play several innings in an extended spring training game tomorrow in Viera, his first game action since tearing an abdominal muscle while sliding into second base April 9 in New York.

Zimmerman has been in Viera for the last week, ramping up his baseball activities. He’s expected to remain there for another week or so, then begin a minor-league rehab assignment with one of the Nationals’ affiliates.

The club still expects the third baseman to come off the disabled list in mid-June.

If you’d like to hear directly from Zim, he’s resumed blogging for and just put up a new post today.

    Reading the comment from Annon10:42 about the Philly fans makes me think the same small percentage of our fans are no different than the same small percentage of Philly fans.
