Zimmerman expected to recover in 4-6 weeks

WASHINGTON -- Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman had surgery to remove a broken piece of bone from his
left wrist and should be able to begin light rehab in about a week.

The surgery was Wednesday night, and the team announced it
Thursday.

Zimmerman will be in a splint for about a week. He is expected
to fully recover in four to six weeks.

He hit .266 with 24 homers and 91 RBIs in 2007, his second full
season in the majors.
