|Jayson Werth able to return Tuesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/30/14) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth's absence will come to an end after just one game, as he is back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.
Werth missed Tuesday's game due to an ankle injury, suffering during Monday's game. He is in his usual spot in the lineup, batting third and playing right field.

|Jayson Werth sits out Tuesday due to ankle injury |

(7/29/14) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Marlins due to an ankle injury suffered Monday. Werth had anticipated he would be in the lineup Tuesday.
Werth is batting .360 with a .478 on-base percentage, .747 slugging percentage and 1.225 OPS in 21 July games. He also has six home runs, 11 doubles, 17 runs, 23 RBI and 14 walks this month.

(7/28/14) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is expected to return to action Tuesday, according to The Washington Post.

|Jayson Werth leaves Monday's game with possible leg injury |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/28/14) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth left Monday's game against the Marlins with a possible leg injury, according to MLB.com.
In the seventh inning, Werth hit a single off Sam Dyson. He attempted to stretch it to a double, and was thrown out at second. Werth slid into the base awkwardly, and limped off the field. He was replaced by Nate McLouth the next inning. It's unclear how much time Werth will miss due to the injury.
|Jayson Werth made quite the impact for Fantasy owners in 2013, despite battling durability issues for a second straight season and appearing in just 129 games. Once Werth got past some early season hamstring problems, there was no slowing him down. After batting .244 with five home runs and 14 RBI in his first 36 games, Werth went on a tear from mid-June through the end of the season, batting .349 with a .437 on-base percentage, .596 slugging percentage and 1.033 OPS in his final 93 games. Werth had 20 home runs, 21 doubles, 64 runs and 68 RBI, while also having as nearly as many walks (51) as strikeouts (69) in that span. Werth ranked in the top five in the NL in OPS (.931), slugging percentage (.532) and on-base percentage (.398). It was by far his best season since signing a seven-year, $126 million deal with the Nationals before the 2011 season, and Werth credited his success to holding his hands higher on the bat. Fantasy owners will hope Werth can have a repeat performance in 2014, but it's hard to overlook his recent durability issues and the fact he isn't getting any younger. Werth is worth an early-to-mid-round selection, but he falls into the category of high-risk, high-reward player.
