Manager Manny Acta is hoping that Zimmerman will be available to play sometime this weekend against the Phillies.
"He's not in very good shape," Acta said. "He went to the doctor. He was having some problems swallowing. He's not available for tonight's game. I'm not expecting any magic recovery so fast."
