Ryan Zimmerman left Saturday’s game against the Mets with a tight left hamstring and, according to MASN’s Ben Goessling, is expected to miss the next few games on the Nationals’ schedule.

“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.
