Nationals and Marlins postponed: Jordan Zimmermann vs Miami in D.C. on Wednesday

Greg Fiume

The Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins game which was scheduled for 7:05 pm EDT this evening has been postponed with a make-up date expected later this season when the Fish return to the nation's capital. Jordan Zimmermann will start tomorrow as scheduled.

The Washington Nationals announced shortly after the scheduled start time for tonight's game with the Miami Marlins that the game was being postponed due to inclement weather:

The Nationals have not announced any details about a make-up date yet, as the note above mentions.

The Nats and Marlins both have Thursday off, but according to reports from Nationals Park this evening, the two teams will not make this game up this week, but will instead make it up at some other as-yet undetermined point in the future:

Williams also told reporters that tonight's scheduled starter, Blake Treinen, will be skipped, moving to the bullpen for now with Jordan Zimmermann going tomorrow on regular rest as scheduled:

Treinen, as MASN's Dan Kolko notes, will reportedly be available out of the bullpen over the next few games.

Zimmermann has faced the Marlins twice already this season. In the first outing he was knocked out after just 1 2/3 IP, having given up seven hits and five earned runs.

He rebounded in his next start following that outing, which was also against Miami, giving up six hits and two runs in seven innings of work in a 9-2 Nats' win in which he earned his first win of the 2014 campaign.

In 13 career starts against the Nationals' NL East rivals, Zimmermann is (5-3) with a 3.84 ERA, 15 walks (1.75 BB/9) and 64 Ks (7.45 K/9) in 77 1/3 IP, over which he's held Marlins' hitters to a combined .252/.292/.407 line.

Zimmermann will be making his seventh start of the year at home in the nation's capital, where he's (1-1) with a 3.94 ERA so far this season.
