Ryan Zimmerman to Have Active Spring

Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman will hit about 40 times this spring training if Davey Martinez has his way. It would be Zimmerman's most in spring since 2017. The Nationals will also target about 110 games for Zimmerman this year, according to Martinez. With Howie Kendrick and Eric Thames also slated to spend time at first and Zimmerman often banged up in recent years, that number may end up a bit high for the fan favorite. Zimmerman's exit velocity remained strong in 2019 at 91.4 mph, but he is a limited player in several ways now and not relevant in fantasy outside NL-only.

Ryan Zimmerman Staying With Nationals

The Washington Nationals agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal to bring first baseman Ryan Zimmerman back on Friday night, according to two people with knowledge of the situation. The contract could max out at $5 million based on incentives for games played and plate appearances. The 35-year-old has been the face of the franchise since he was taken fourth overall in 2005, but he'll likely serve in a platoon role at first base with Eric Thames in 2020, mainly playing against left-handed pitchers. Injuries have limited him to an average of 92 games of the last six seasons, and he played in just 52 games last year while fighting through a chronic foot issue. His fantasy value will be limited to NL-only leagues, and he could be used as a low-priced DFS streamer in the right matchups.

Ryan Zimmerman, Yan Gomes Become Free Agents

The Washington Nationals declined their 2020 options on first baseman Ryan Zimmerman ($18 million) and catcher Yan Gomes ($9 million), making them both free agents. The Nats expect to work something out to re-sign Zimmerman, who was the team's first-round pick in 2005, but the same can't be said for Gomes. Zimmerman has dealt with injuries the last several seasons and hit just .257 with six homers and 27 RBI in only 171 at-bats during the regular season. Still, he'll likely be the starting first baseman in D.C. again next year if he re-signs. He's just corner infield depth in NL-only leagues at this stage of his career, though. Gomes doesn't stand out defensively and hit a weak .223 with 12 home runs and 43 RBI in 2019. He was the second option behind the plate this year behind Kurt Suzuki.
