Check out the latest news and notes surrounding the Washington Nationals.
Ryan Zimmerman ran the bases Wednesday before game two of the Nationals' doubleheader against the Phillies. This makes back-to-back appearances from Zimmerman on the bases before a game as he did the same thing Tuesday. Barring any drastic setbacks, Zimmerman should be cleared to start rehab pretty soon.
Despite a broken nose and a black eye, star pitcher Max Scherzer started game two of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies. Scherzer tossed seven shutout innings and struck out 10 in the 2-0 victory. The injury came during batting practice Tuesday when Scherzer fouled a ball off his face during bunting drills.
Right-handed pitcher Austin Voth was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to serve as insurance in the case that Scherzer wasn't available to pitch game two of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Phillies.
