|(9/12/14) The Nationals have given right fielder Jayson Werth the night off for the Friday game against the host Mets. He is dealing with the flu. Nate Schierholtz is set to start there instead.

Jayson Werth homers, steals two bases Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/14) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth went 1 for 2 with two walks, a solo home run and two stolen bases in his team's 6-4 win over the Dodgers Monday.
Werth put his team up early with his first-inning home run and showed off his wheels later in the game, stealing second base after each of his walks. He has hit .288/.383/.458 with 16 home runs, 76 RBI and nine stolen bases in 465 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.
