Ryan Zimmerman

Washington Nationals
Injury Opt Out
Est. Return 2/1/2021
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The oft-injured Zimmerman can add another affliction to his litany of health woes as he missed about two-thirds of the season with plantar fasciitis. The first IL stint was April 28 through June 28 with a return stay from July 22 to Sept. 1. While on the field, Zimmerman did what he always does, hit the ball with authority but with too few flyballs to take advantage. For the past five seasons, his GB% has been between 46.4% and 48.9%. In 2017, he smashed 36 homers via an outlying 26.5% HR/FB rate, nearly twice his usual level. An above-average hard-hit rate helps keep Zimmerman's average at a reasonable level. The Nationals declined Zimmerman's option but ultimately brought him back. He can still help against southpaws as Zimmerman's wRC+ against lefties since 2017 is 171, compared to 106 facing righties. Above all, Zimmerman remains a big health risk. Read Past Outlooks
