Ailing Zimmer making progress
ST. PETERSBURG -- Baseball icon and Rays senior advisor Don Zimmer has not been with the team since the first weekend of the season due to several hospital visits for different maladies over the past month.

Kidney problems have caused Zimmer's most recent health problem. He is scheduled to begin dialysis immediately.

Rays manager Joe Maddon said he talked to Zimmer on Wednesday.

"Talked to him yesterday and he sounded better," Maddon said. "He wanted to know how everybody was doing. He was Zim being Zim."
