Zach Walters’s name is on the card. Ryan Zimmerman headed to the DL. Real question is how long.

The Nationals put Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday and recalled infielder Zach Walters from Syracuse.
Zimmerman’s absence from the Nationals’ lineup card for today’s game against the Rockies was a signal that Tuesday night’s hamstring injury was not a minor one. This is Zimmerman’s second trip to the DL this season: He missed 44 games with a broken right thumb.
The Nats are 33-19 with Zimmerman and 22-24 without him.
Adam Kilgore will be here with an update soon.
