The shot above of Mike Morse photobombing Ryan Zimmerman following yet another walkoff by Mr. Walkoff in 2010 is perfectly appropriate for the news that Zim is not in the Nats starting lineup tonight in San Diego.
"Ryan Zimmerman will be sent for an MRI tonight in San Diego. The #nats expect the results later tonight. He's already had a clean X-ray."
And via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, Davey has a bad feeling:
"Ryan Zimmerman will go for an MRI tonight on his shoulder, per Davey Johnson. Nats fear a strain. "I don't have a good feeling," Davey said."
Seems like only Saturday Zim was going to be back on Tuesday and saying stuff like this about his sore shoulder:
"It’s nothing. It’s something that I could have played through. It’s been bugging me, and then it would go away a couple days. I’ve been diving all over the place over there. It’s just like a jammed finger, pretty much. I’m going to give it a couple days of rest, it’ll go away and I’ll be good to go on Tuesday."

Wait, didn't Michael Morse say the same thing in Spring Training?
"It wasn't bad yesterday by any means. It's nice to have a rainout and not a doubleheader [the next day]. Since I'm only going to miss one game instead of two, I don't see any reason why I wouldn't play on Tuesday. So this kind of works out best."
