Ryan Zimmerman gets a day off, feeling healthy


“It’s just part of it,” Zimmerman said. “Physically, health-wise, I’m perfectly fine. He said he’d just been looking to get me a day for a while. We couldn’t really find a day, and today worked out good because we had tomorrow off. He wanted to give me a day, so I’ll take these two days and I’ll be good to go for the rest of the year.”

Johnson thought Zimmerman had been “dragging” lately. After he began August on a tear, hitting .385/.430/.628 over the month’s 20 games, he’s gone 1 for his last 17. In Cincinnati, he’s 0 for 9 with five strikeouts. Zimmerman, though, said he does not feel tired.

“Just got dominated the last two games,” he said with a chucke. “That’s it.”
