Zimmerman says that he feels better and is looking forward to rejoining the Nationals.
"It feels pretty good," Zimmerman said. "I think whenever you're coming back from anything, you're always a little cautious at first whether you're 100 percent or not. I think that's the point of getting out there and hitting and proving to yourself that you can kind of let it go and everything's fine."
