Zimmerman likely out until Wednesday

WASHINGTON -- Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman is not expected to play on Sunday or Monday because of a tight left hamstring. With Tuesday being an off-day, the Nationals hope that Zimmerman is back in action Wednesday.

"We are trying to get it better than trying to play through it," Zimmerman said. "I think it's smart to do what we did. We'll get it better and be ready for the full season.
