Nationals recall Wilmer Difo, send Jayson Werth to DL
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) The Nationals have recalled infielder Wilmer Difo to the majors, while placing outfielder Jayson Werth on the 15-day disabled list, the team announced.
An MRI on Werth's injured left wrist revealed no structural damage, but he'll receive an extended period of rest and recovery for the injury. He was hit by a pitch on the wrist on Friday and hasn't played since. Werth has hit .208/.294/.287 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 101 at-bats.
Difo, who has yet to make his major-league debut, has logged just 52 at-bats over the high Class A level. He has hit .308/.339/.500 with three stolen bases for Double-A Harrisburg.

OF's Jayson Werth, Denard Span out of Nationals' lineup for Sunday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/17/15) Jayson Werth (wrist) and Denard Span are out of the Nationals’ lineup for Sunday in San Diego, as Tyler Moore will make his second straight start in left field, batting sixth, and Michael Taylor will bat leadoff and play centerfield.
Werth left Friday’s game after getting hit on the wrist with a pitch and sat out Saturday’s win.
Span, who's started 12 of the last 13 games for the Nats in centerfield, will sit out for rest.
X-rays on Nationals OF Jayson Werth's wrist come back negative
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth underwent X-rays on his left wrist, which came back negative, manager Matt Williams told reporters, per the Washington Post. Werth exited Friday’s game against San Diego in the second inning after getting plunked on the left wrist with a 92 mph fastball from Odrisamer Despaigne.
He is expected to be evaluated again on Saturday.
|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: Werth has never been a model of health, so even though the news of his shoulder surgery in January came out of nowhere, it wasn't a complete surprise. The most aggressive timetable has him back in time for opening day, but you shouldn't assume a best-case scenario for a 36-year-old. This upcoming season may be the third in four in which he plays less than 130 games.
2015 Outlook: With his power already on the decline, Werth was shaping up to be a risky pick in Fantasy even before the surgery. It was a relatively minor procedure, but he already has such a thin margin for error at his age. Knowing how productive he can be, particularly in points leagues, you wouldn't want to let him fall too far on Draft Day. The middle rounds -- say, the 11-to-13 range -- seems appropriate in standard mixed leagues.
