Nationals to swap Jayson Werth, Bryce Harper in the field
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) The Nationals will adjust their defensive alignment in 2015, according to The Washington Post.
Bryce Harper is expected to take over in right field, while Jayson Werth moves to left. The move should allow the club to get better use of Harper's arm. Harper is also expected to take on a bigger role in the lineup. He will likely hit somewhere between the second and fourth spot in the lineup, according to manager Matt Williams. Last season, Harper was mostly used as the team's sixth hitter.
Nationals' Jayson Werth to serve 10 days in jail for reckless driving
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/5/14) A Washington, D.C. judge found Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth guilty Friday of reckless driving and sentenced him to 10 days in jail, but will likely only serve five, the Washington Post reports. Werth was driving a 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 when he was pulled over for driving 105 mph in a 55 mph zone in Fairfax County on July 6. His attorney is expected appeal the ruling.
Jayson Werth flirts with cycle
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/26/14) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth fell a home run shy of a cycle in Game 2 of a doubleheader Friday night against Miami.
Werth tripled in two runs in the first, doubled in the second, singled in the fifth and was hit by a pitch in the sixth. He finished 3 for 4 with two runs scored and an RBI in a 15-7 defeat. He is hitting .291/.394/.455 with 16 homers and 82 RBI over 530 at-bats.
Nationals rest several regulars
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) For their Sunday matchup at the Marlins, the Nationals left Ian Desmond, Denard Span, Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos out of their starting lineup. Ryan Zimmerman, who made his return from a two-month hiatus due to a hamstring injury on Saturday, was also not in Sunday's lineup.
Jayson Werth back in lineup Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/13/14) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is back in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.
Werth was given Friday off while recovering from the flu. He has hit .283/.383/.448 with 16 home runs, 78 RBI and nine stolen bases in 498 at-bats.
|2014 Summary: Jayson Werth couldn't repeat his MVP-caliber numbers of 2013, but he did stay healthy enough to rank among the top 20 outfielders in both Rotisserie and Head-to-Head points leagues. Because he walks so much and figures to trade off even more homers for doubles as he enters his late 30s, points leagues are shaping up to be his better format. Among full-timers, he ranked 10th in Fantasy points per game last year.|
Playing time status: Only halfway into a seven-year deal, Werth's role is plenty secure, but he's never been a model of health and won't have an easier time staying on the field in his age-36 season. He avoided a major injury in 2014, but it was the first time in three years he played even 130 games.
2015 Outlook: Particularly with his power on the decline -- he hit only four of his 16 home runs after the All-Star break, though with a predictably high batting average and OPS -- probably the best way to approach Werth on Draft Day is as a potentially more powerful version of Melky Cabrera. When he's in, he's money, but more for his well-roundedness than ability to carry you in a category. And of course, you should be prepared for him to miss one-third of the season.
