“It’s nothing major,” Zimmerman said. “It tightened up a little bit
today. Riggs (manager Jim Riggleman) thought it’d be a better idea to
make sure we got it right earlier in the season instead of trying to
battle through it for an extended period of time. We’ll see what it
feels like tomorrow, and I’ll have a better idea then.”

Zimmerman, 25, is off to a 4-for-19 start this season with three doubles and two RBI.  Willie Harris filled in at third base and could be asked to do the same on Sunday and Monday.
