Zimmerman throws, slated to start BP Saturday
WASHINGTON -- Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who is on the 15-day disabled list because of an inflamed right shoulder, threw the baseball without any problems Tuesday.

Zimmerman is also scheduled to start taking batting practice on Saturday. The third baseman is eligible to come off the disabled list early next week. There isn't any talk of Zimmerman doing a rehab stint.

With Zimmerman out of the lineup, Stephen Lombardozzi will get most of the playing time at third base.
