Nationals Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo made the announcement. Zimmerman missed the last 58 games (27-31 team record during that span) after being placed on the DL on April 12, retroactive to April 10, with a left abdominal injury. The 26-year-old batted .381 (8-for-21) with three runs scored, three doubles, one triple, three RBI and two walks in six games during his rehab assignment with Syracuse, Potomac of the Single-A Carolina League and Hagerstown of the Single-A South Atlantic League. In eight games this season with Washington, Zimmerman is batting .357 with five runs scored, one triple, one home run, four RBI and seven walks. Stammen, 26, went 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in two relief appearances with the Nationals.
