MIAMI -- Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman was in the starting lineup on Friday against the Marlins, but manager Matt Williams said Zimmerman is still dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He had a tough time running the bases in Thursday's 4-1 loss against the Cardinals.
Williams said Zimmerman felt better before Friday's game than he did the previous day. It's an ongoing problem for Zimmerman, who sleeps with a splint at night. He also keeps the foot in ice and has anti-inflammatory medication in order to keep the swelling down.
