Nats lose 3B Ryan Zimmerman for remainder of season.

The Nats return home this week hoping for good news on star player Ryan Zimmerman recent injury. We have a 3 game set against NL Central foes, the Cincinnati Reds and then a home set with the first place Phillies.

"The loss of Zimmerman is huge for our playoff chances" GM Eric Murray stated, "He is our captain and our offense goes as he goes. Matt Antonelli, who we just called up from AA Harrisburg will take over for the rest of the season at 3B."
