Insight: It's a really tough break for the Nats as Zimmerman had been off to a great start (.364, 2 HR, 6 RBI in ten games). Anthony Rendon (.372, 2 HR, 9 RBI) should see time at third base while he's out.

He was on the field four hours before Tuesday's game trying out a new sidearm throwing motion.

Suddenly the Nats are only four and a half games out in the Wild Card. They'll need the Reds to completely collapse over the final two weeks to even have a chance but it's pretty amazing they're still in it after how poorly they played in June and July.
