ATLANTA -- Third baseman Ryan Zimmeran tried to put a positive spin on his broken right thumb and the Washington Nationals list of injuries. "Hopefully well 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 between four to six weeks. He was injured in the fifth inning of Saturdays 6-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves while getting picked off as he dove back to second base. "I thought just my nail had bent back, because the nail was black and blue and bleeding," Zimmerman said. "It was the whole thumb, not just the nail. It stinks but it happens. It was just a freak accident." Infielder Zach Walters was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to take Zimmermans spot on the 25-man roster. Walters hit .290 with three doubles and three RBIs in nine games at Syracuse. Washington a few minutes before the first pitch that centre fielder Nate McLouth had been scratched from the lineup with an undisclosed injury. Bryce Harper moved from left field to centre field and went from sixth in the batting order to second. Kevin Frandsen took Harpers spot in left field and batted sixth. The Nationals received some good news Sunday when right fielder Jayson Werth returned to the lineup. A sore groin kept Werth from playing in the field Saturday. He singled as a pinch-hitter in the eighth. Centre fielder Denard Span was placed on the seven-day disabled list Saturday with concussion symptoms, but said he feels better. Span missed 70 games with Minnesota in 2011 because of concussion symptoms following a collision at home plate. He was injured Friday after colliding on the basepath with Braves second baseman Dan Uggla. "If I had to play today I could play," Span said. "But I understand with my history that its best for me to go ahead and go on the 7-day DL, just to be safe, and think about the long rest of the season and also the rest of my life." General manager Mike Rizzo said Zimmerman will see a hand specialist at the Cleveland Clinic on Monday. Zimmerman, in his eighth season, has a .286 career average, 181 homers and 678 RBIs. In 33 at-bats this year, hes hitting .364 with two homers and six RBIs. With Zimmerman out of the lineup, Anthony Rendon moved from second base to third and Danny Espinosa started at second. If theres good news to come from Zimmermans injury, perhaps the time off will allow him to rest his right shoulder. Zimmerman won an NL Gold Glove award in 2009 but has dealt with shoulder problems in recent years. He underwent surgery after the 2012 season. He said a few days ago that switching from an over-the-top delivery to more of a sidearm throw is "a work in progress, but theres no pain." On April 5 in Washington, Zimmermans throwing error led to a pair of unearned runs in a loss to Atlanta. The Nationals signed Zimmerman to a six-year, $100 million contract extension on Feb. 26, 2012. Nike NFL Jerseys Outlet .com) - Whew!

The 30-year-old Kottaras served as Kansas Citys backup catcher last season after being claimed off waivers from Oakland in January.PHOENIX -- Of course, the NBAs most improved team would have its most improved player. Goran Dragic, whose breakout season helped the Phoenix Suns make a remarkable transformation, was presented the most improved award at a ceremony Wednesday at US Airways Center. The 6-foot-3 Slovenian, who turns 28 in two weeks, flourished under first-year coach Jeff Hornaceks double-point guard system, teaming with Eric Bledsoe to form a dynamic backcourt. "Were looking for players who can go out there every night and lay it all out there," Hornacek said, "play through injuries, do everything the coaches ask, play with confidence. Thats what Goran did." Dragic averaged 20.5 points and 5.9 assists per game, shooting 50.5 per cent from the field, 40.8 per cent on 3-pointers. He was the only player in the NBA to shoot better than 50 per cent from the field and 40 per cent from 3-point range. "The main thing was my confidence this year," he said. "I feel that my teammates, they trust me. The coaches trust me. I can play my game, be confident, be tough and then shoot the ball better." Dragic recalled the doubters when he came into the league. "I can remember one quote from a newspaper, somebody said that Im the worst player in the NBA and my last name should not be Dragic but tragic," he said. "That sticks in your head. It sticks in my head. On the practice court, I always have this in my mind." Dragic received 408 of a possible 1,134 points, including 65 first-place votes, from a panel of 126 sports writers and broadcasters in the United States and Canada. Indianas Lance Stephenson was second with 158 points and 13 first-place votes, and New Orleans Anthony Davis third with 155 points and 16 first-place votes. Two other Suns were among the top 10 -- Gerald Green fourth and Markieff Morris 10th. Under Hornacek, who finished second to San Antonios Gregg Popovich for NBA coach of the year, the Suns went from 25-57 in 2012-13 to 48-37 last season, a 23-win improvement, and they barely missed making the playoffs in the tough Western Conference. While the Suns were at their best when Dragic and Bledsoe both played, Dragic had to carry the brunt of the scoring and playmaking load when Bledsoe was out for two months following knee surgery.dddddddddddd The left-handed Dragic is in his second stint with Phoenix. He was drafted in 2008 by San Antonio in the second round, the 45th pick overall, then was traded to the Suns for Malik Hairston, the 48th pick. Dragic was groomed to be Steve Nashs successor but just before the trade deadline in February 2011, the Suns sent him to Houston for Aaron Brooks. Brooks languished in Phoenix, and after Nash was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers following the 2011-12 season, the Suns brought Dragic back, signing the free agent to a four-year, $30 million contract. He can opt out of the deal after next season. Dragic and the rest of the Suns struggled through a miserable 2012-13 season, but with the hiring of Hornacek and new general manager Ryan McDonough, everything changed. Hornacek said he could see Dragics emerging leadership when he watched the guard play for the Slovenian national team last summer. "We could tell from watching him that he was in charge of that team and that he has taken that next step," Hornacek said. "Thats the sign of a great player, when he can take his game to another level." Dragic credited the freedom and confidence that Hornacek and his staff gave him and the rest of the team. Now he and the Suns wont be a surprise but will be expected to win. "Next year, of course, theres going to be pressure," Dragic said. "Im not scared of pressure. I always like to take any challenges that you guys (reporters) or guys on opposing teams give me." Dragic was married last off-season and has a new son, Mateo. His wife and son were in the crowd when he was presented the trophy. Asked how he could be so low-key and at ease off the court and such a dynamo on it, he said it was basically a split personality. "Off the court, Im always shy, dont talk much. Im kind of calm," he said. "But on the floor, Im a different guy. I can express my will on the court. Im kind of cocky." He is the third Suns player to win the award, following Kevin Johnson in 1988-89 and Boris Diaw in 2005-06. ' ' '
