CSN Washington’s Mark Zuckerman reports that Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman has been dealing with a mild case of plantar fasciitis in his left heel and may need a day off soon. Zuckerman adds that Zimmerman has been bothered by his left heel over the last four or five days and it felt worse on Thursday.

Zimmerman, following a 1-for-4 performance on Thursday afternoon against the Cardinals, has hit safely in seven out of his last eight games, including three consecutive multi-hit games entering Thursday’s action. Overall, he’s hitting .226/.304/.419 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 69 plate appearances.
