Davey: Don't expect Zim to move to first anytime soon

|

ST. LOUIS -- In the sixth inning of Sunday night's game against the Marlins, third baseman Ryan Zimmerman made a spectacular play, one of his all-time best. With two outs, Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hit a hard ground ball to Zimmerman, who dove to his right and made an accurate strong throw to first baseman Tyler Moore.

The throw gave every indication that Zimmerman's right shoulder is healthy and he will not be switching to first base next season.

"I wasn't worried about it," manager Davey Johnson said about the position switch. "That was unbelievable -- the catch and he had a heck of a lot on it. That's a seed. I think we would put [playing first base] to bed."
