Ryan Zimmerman says his shoulder has healed and he expects to come off the disabled list on Tuesday.

Zimmerman was put on the disabled list by the Nationals on April 28, retroactive to April 21, with right shoulder inflammation.

He tested the shoulder Saturday by hitting off a tee and swinging at soft tosses.

"Felt real good. It was pretty much 100 percent," Zimmerman said. "We'll do soft toss again (Sunday) and plan to hit (batting practice). Do another BP on Monday. If everything goes good, I'll be ready to go Tuesday."
