Ryan Zimmerman, the longest-tenured Washington National resigns a one year, 2 million dollar deal Friday for the 2020 MLB Season.
Even after the World Series win for the first time in franchise history, and the epic parade that followed, the party is still going in Washington. I say that because Friday the Nationals signed long time first baseman Ryan Zimmerman to a one year deal to remain on the defending World Champion squad. Zimmerman, who was the first-ever MLB Draft selection for D.C. in 2005, has been with the team throughout its existence in the nation’s capital.
Ryan Zimmerman, a product of the area, is from Virginia Beach and played his college ball at the University of Virginia. The Nationals “Mr. Franchise” holds multiple team records and looks to only increase them this coming season. It is unclear what type of role Zimmerman will play for the Nationals this upcoming season. Still, a role player and mentor for the younger players such as Juan Soto, and probable call-up Carter Kieboom would be ideal.
Here are the Career Stats from Ryan Zimmerman long time tenure with the Washington Nationals
With this contract, Zimmerman’s career financial total in the MLB is estimated to be around 135.5 Million Dollars. The 35-year-old will hope to stay healthy for the 2020 Nationals campaign and play more than 52 games plus postseason in 2019.
