Good news on the Ryan Zimmerman front.

According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, the injured third baseman reported feeling “great” after playing catch Tuesday afternoon at Nationals Park and is aiming to return to the starting lineup for Sunday night game’s against the division rival Phillies (which is going to be broadcast on ESPN).

Zimmerman was placed on the disabled list (retroactive to April 21) due to right elbow soreness.

The 27-year-old owns a .224/.324/.345 batting line, one homer and seven RBI in 15 games this season.
