From the article:
|Zimmerman was taken by the Nationals with the fourth overall pick in the 2005 amateur draft out of the University of Virginia and made his big league debut that September.|
In 2006, his first full season, Zimmerman hit .287 with 20 homers and 110 RBIs and finished second in NL Rookie of the Year voting to Florida's Hanley Ramirez. He has a career batting average of .282 with 58 homers and 258 RBIs.
Asked what he expects from Zimmerman this season, Acta said: "Twenty-five-plus [homers] and 100 RBIs, and hopefully more people other than me are watching him play at third base this year and he can get a Gold Glove."
If he was the face orf the franchise, wouldn't the Nats have offered a multi-year?
