Zimmerman expects to see spot duty at first base next season, The Washington Post reports.
Zimmerman will remain as Washington's everyday third baseman, but new manager Matt Williams could move him across the infield to play first for roughly 10 to 15 games this season. On those days, Adam LaRoche would likely make way for Zimmerman, giving the Nationals a reliable right-handed hitter to go against lefty pitchers. Zimmerman remains primarily a third baseman, but his versatility could allow him to be deployed elsewhere for some games in 2014.
