Nationals Promote Bryce Harper, Send Ryan Zimmerman To DL

Publish date:

The Washington Nationals will send star third baseman Ryan Zimmerman to the 15-day disabled list, according to a tweet from the team’s public relations account. The team will recall top prospect Bryce Harper who will make his debut Saturday.

Zimmerman has been battling a shoulder injury for the past week. It was recently reported that the discomfort was caused by a A/C joint issue in his throwing arm. The injury reportedly only hurts when Zimmerman swings a bat.
