“I don’t even ask about Zim getting hurt,” Johnson said. “I’ll probably give him tomorrow off to give him two days. He probably won’t like that.”
If Zimmerman sits, Johnson said the Nationals will start either Chad Tracy or Stephen Lombardozzi at third base. Since Tracy is getting a start today at first base and Lombardozzi hasn’t started since Monday, it seems like a safe bet that Lombardozzi will be the choice.
