The previous night, Zimmerman suffered tightness in his right hip flexor after scoring in the sixth inning against the Braves. He remained in the game until the eighth inning.
"I feel fine," Zimmerman said. "It's just a little tweak. It's nothing serious."
Manager Manny Acta wasn't planning on starting Zimmerman against the Dodgers on Wednesday anyway because he wanted to give Aaron Boone more at-bats. Boone has missed most of the exhibition season recovering from left knee surgery.
