Nationals OF Jayson Werth heading to see specialist on wrist
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is heading back to Washington to see a specialist for his wrist injury, manager Matt Williams said per The Washington Post.
Werth, who is on the 15-day DL with the injury, is expected to rejoin the team this weekend in Cincinnati. General manager Mike Rizzo said Werth's range of motion has improved, but the doctor visit was planned. Werth has not played since May 15 and is hitting .208 with 12 RBI in 101 at-bats this season.
Nationals OF Jayson Werth still not ready to take swings
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is still dealing with wrist pain and is unable to rotate it, according to the Washington Post. Werth is not taking swings, but is with the team in Chicago.
"If you've got what he's got on his wrist -- the surgeries, the metal and all of that stuff -- it takes a little bit longer when you get plunked like that," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "He's not able to rotate like he would need to swinging a bat.
Werth, who is currently on the 15-day DL with the injury, has not been able to swing since May 15. He is hitting .208 with 12 RBI in 101 at-bats this season.
Wrist remains an issue for Nationals LF Jayson Werth
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) The good news for Nationals left fielder Jayson Werth is that he has plenty of time to recover from a wrist injury. After all, he was placed on the disabled list only four days ago.
The bad news is that it still has swelling, according to the Washington Post. That makes it difficult to rotate and swing despite aggressive treatment.
Werth has been sidelined since May 15, when he took a fastball off the wrist. It remains to be seen if his stint on the DL lasts more than 15 days.
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.
Report: MRI reveals no damage to wrist of Nationals' Jayson Werth
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) An MRI revealed no fracture or ligament damage to the left wrist of Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, a source told MLB.com.
Werth suffered the wrist injury when he was hit by a pitch in Friday's game. He has not played since and it is not known if he'll need a stint on the disabled list.
|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.
