Nationals' Williams not expecting Jayson Werth to be ready by opener
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11:53 am ET) Nationals manager Matt Williams indicated Wednesday outfielder Jayson Werth (shoulder) will likely begin the year on the disabled list, per MASNsports.com.
"We don't think he's going to be available for Opening Day," Williams said.
Williams said Werth is slated to play 5-6 innings in a minor-league game Wednesday and get at least three at-bats. Werth has been rehabbing since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on the AC joint in his right shoulder Jan. 9.
Nationals OF Jayson Werth unsure of next step in rehab

|(3/31/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth went 1 for 2 in his first minor-league game swinging. Werth had surgery on his shoulder which has kept him out this spring. He remains unsure of the next step his recovery process, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.
"I felt like it was the first game of spring training," Werth said. "So if I had a month left, I'd be right where I needed to be. But I've got six days, five now. We're gonna do all the work we can and we're going to do everything we can to get there. I just don't know if it'll be enough. Again, that's not my decision anyway."
Nationals RF Jayson Werth faced live hitters for first time Monday

|(3/30/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams said that right fielder Jayson Werth took some in-game hits in a minor-league game for the first time this spring, according to The Washington Post.
Werth had surgery on his shoulder which has kept him out this spring. He's not expected to be ready for Opening Day as Williams previously called him "a stretch" to play by then.
Werth hit .292 with 16 home runs a season ago.
Jayson Werth 'a stretch' to be ready by Nationals' opener
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth took batting practice on Saturday, for the first time since the shoulder surgery that has kept him out this spring.
Manager Matt Williams said the hitting went well, but Werth won't hit in a minor league game on Sunday. The team still hopes Werth will be ready by Opening Day, but Williams said that was "a stretch", per James Wagner of the Washington Post.
Nationals' Jayson Werth will play defense only minor-league game
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth took some swings off a batting tee and is scheduled to play defense only in a minor-league game on Saturday, according to MLB.com. Werth is working his way back from January shoulder surgery, and has yet to make his spring debut. Once he's cleared to face pitchers, he'll start seeing game action.
|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.
