Jordan Zimmermann scratched from rehab start, but no need for panic

Jordan Zimmermann was scheduled to make a rehab start tonight for Class A Potomac, but he had to be scratched because of a stiff neck, according to a Nationals spokesman. He will be evaluated Tuesday and will likey pitch later this week instead.

Nationals officials stressed Zimmermann's neck ailment is not a serious setback. They expect a simple check Tuesday and that Zimmermann will resume his rehab from Tommy John surgery, which is ahead of schedule.

So POT starts Alaniz instead tonight, and JZimm skips a turn in the rotation. It just pushes him back closer to a true 12-month return (which the FO would prefer to see).

So much for all the 2nd half pitching help we've been reading about, would've been nice.
