Movin' On Up--Zimmerman Makes AA Debut
Seeing his first AA action on Saturday night, Zimmerman went 3 for four with a double and a run scored in the Senators' 8-6 win over Akron.
After grounding out in the first inning, Zimmerman hit a ground-rule double in the third. He came around to score on Dee Haynes' double, part of the Senators' six-run inning to tie the game at six. In the fourth, Zimmerman singled and was stranded. Three innings later he singled with one out and scored Harrisburg's last run on Dee Brown's double. He handled his four chances in the field flawlessly.
Zimmerman was the fourth overall selection in the free-agent draft earlier this month. The Nationals announced, at the time of the draft, that he would start in Harrisburg. That plan was changed and Zimmerman went to Savannah. While in Savannah, Zimmerman appeared in four games and hit .471 on 8 for 17 hitting. He had two doubles, one triple, two home runs and six RBI's before his promotion today.
Zimmerman recently finished his junior season at University of Virginia. Just a few days ago, Ryan was selected as an All-American by Baseball America and by the College Baseball writers.
The Senators also placed Billy Martin on the disabled list with a hand injury. The Senators roster stands at 22 active players, one below the maximum limit currently allowed by the Eastern League.
