June 7, 2011
(WOODBRIDGE, VA) Washington Nationals’ All Star third baseman Ryan Zimmerman continues his rehab assignment Wednesday at Pfitzner Stadium in Woodbridge, VA. Zimmerman, who went 2-for-3 with a double in his Potomac debut Monday night, returns to the lineup Wednesday evening.
Wednesday night is Belly Buster Night at the Pfitz: for just $15, fans get an All-You-Can-Eat Uncle Julio’s Belly Buster Package and a seat to the game.
Zimmerman is working back from a torn abdominal muscle; he had surgery on May 3rd. Zimmerman was hitting .357 with a home run and four RBI in eight games before the injury.
Zimmerman has a career .289 batting average with 117 home runs and 453 RBI. He was an All-Star, Gold Glover, and Silver Slugger in 2009. He repeated as Silver Slugger in 2010. The Nationals took Zimmerman with the fourth overall pick in 2005.
This will be the second time that Zimmerman has played for the P-Nats. Back in 2008 he played two games at Lewis-Gale Field in Salem, VA against the Red Sox as he recovered from a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
