The Nationals will be without their best player Sunday, as Ryan Zimmerman is out with a strained abdominal muscle. It's an injury that initially occurred in spring training but was reaggravated Saturday night. The club hasn't made a decision about a possible stint on the disabled list, as there's an off-day Monday and Zimmerman will be re-evaluated Tuesday after two straight days off.

“If playing risks making it get worse, then rest is the prudent course,” General Manager Mike Rizzo said. “But so far he’s fine doing most movements. Swinging the bat, playing defense and running the bases, he’s fine. Certain movements and certain angles of the throws, and when he slid right on it, that hurt.” (Washington Post )

Zimmerman, 26, has gotten off to a hot start to the 2011 season. He's hitting .357 with a home run, four RBI, five runs and a 1.022 OPS.
