3B joins Nats' growing injury list

ATLANTA — 3B Ryan Zimmerman tried to put a positive spin on his broken right thumb and the Nationals' list of injuries.

"Hopefully we'll get all this out of the way," he said, "and everyone will be healthy the rest of the year."

Zimmerman was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and is expected to miss four to six weeks.

He was injured in the fifth inning of Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Braves while getting picked off as he dived back to second base.

"I thought just my nail had bent back, because the nail was black and blue and bleeding," he said. "It was the whole thumb, not just the nail. It stinks but it happens. It was just a freak accident."

CF Nate McLouth was scratched with an undisclosed injury.

PEDROIA OUT: Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia was scratched because of a sore left wrist. Manager John Farrell said Pedroia will return to Boston to be examined by a doctor this morning.

JETER SITS AGAIN: Yankees SS Derek Jeter was out of the lineup for the second straight day after feeling tightness in his right quadriceps.

ONE UP, ONE DOWN: RHP Colby Lewis is ready to rejoin the Rangers rotation tonight after 21 months and two operations. However, Texas 3B Adrian Beltre went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quad.

CUBS: SS Javier Baez, regarded as one of baseball's best prospects, went on the disabled list at Triple-A Iowa because of a left ankle sprain.

DODGERS: RH reliever Brian Wilson, out with inflammation of the ulnar nerve in his pitching elbow, said he's ready to come off the disabled list after a minor-league rehab outing.

REDS: RHP Mat Latos has a strained right forearm and won't throw for 10-14 days. Latos has been trying to come back from left knee surgery on Feb. 14.
