Report: Bradley Zimmer To Play In Arizona Saturday As Rehab

Bradley Zimmer has not played Major League Baseball, let alone play baseball for the Cleveland Indians since April 25 of 2018 due to a right shoulder injury.

According to Zack Meisel of The Athletic, Zimmer will finally play in a game in Arizona as a Designated Hitter on Saturday and will play the outfield next week.

Zimmer has only played in the MLB for a total of two years but never fully. Zimmer has played in 135 games throughout his career, has 20 doubles, 2 triples, 10 home runs, 48 RBIs, 22 stolen bases, and has struck out 143 times. Zimmer has a career batting average of .237.

The Indians outfield has changed drastically since Zimmer’s last appearance for Cleveland. Zimmer was in an outfield that featured Michael Brantley, Brandon Guyer, Rajai Davis, and himself.

Cleveland now has Tyler Naquin, Oscar Mercado, and Yasiel Puig as their core starting outfielders. When and if Zimmer will come back healthy, the Indians might not have a place for Zimmer and plans might have changed drastically since April 25 of 2018.
