• MLB.com's Bill Ladson Blog: All Nats All the Time: "Nationals have concerns about Zim's elbow"

• "Nationals' Zimmermann Plagued by Elbow Discomfort" - washingtonpost.com's Zach Berman

"Jordan Zimmermann did not pitch his scheduled bullpen session Friday because of elbow discomfort, prolonging the rookie pitcher's stay on the disabled list..."

• Washington Times: Chatter - "J. Zimmermann MRI shows 'concerning facts'" - Mark Zuckerman

"If you're Jordan Zimmermann, what's the last name you want to hear right now? Dr. James Andrews. Unfortunately for the Nationals' rookie right-hander, an MRI of his injured elbow has been sent to the noted orthopedist, who will look at it Monday and recommend a course of action for the club and its top young pitcher."

• NATIONALS NEWS NETWORK- Dave Nichols - "GB&U GAME 111: Lucky Seven; Nats Beat Snakes 5-2"

"The logical reason to send just the results to Andrews, and not Zimmermann himself for an evaluation, is to confirm their diagnosis that surgery is necessary, and Zimmermann will be lost for the rest of the season."
