WASHINGTON -- Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann had a bullpen session Saturday afternoon without any problems and is scheduled to pitch Tuesday night against the Rockies.

It will be Zimmermann's first start since July 11, when he sustained a biceps strain against the Phillies. According to Nats manager Matt Williams, Zimmermann will not be on a pitch count.

"He had a good bullpen today. He is good to go," Williams said. "All indications are that he is set to go on Tuesday unless he feels something after. We don't think he is going to.

"I don't anticipate any pitch count. We'll look at how he is feeling during the course of the game. We will not go in with any limit on him. He can go as normal as long as he feels good."
