Jordan Zimmermann to avoid the disabled list

5 Comments

It appears as though Jordan Zimmermann will avoid the disabled list, reports Bill Ladson of MLB.com.

Zimmermann, who had to leave his last outing before the break with a strained biceps, will throw a bullpen session today or Saturday. Assuming he gets through it with no issues, he will be cleared to rejoin the Nationals’ rotation next week.

Good news for the Nats.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
