Nationals' Williams on Jayson Werth: He will get occasional day off
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) The Nationals opted to hold outfielder Jayson Werth out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals. Manager Matt Williams admitted the team is being a little cautious as Werth is coming off shoulder surgery.
"He's going to have to have an occasional day," Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "He didn't have spring training, if you will. He goes through that regular spring training soreness and it's even more monumental because it's condensed (amount of time)."
Werth is batting .167 (5 for 30) with two doubles, two RBI, three walks and seven strikeouts in eight games since coming off the disabled list.
Jayson Werth gets first RBI of year for Nationals
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Nationals left fielder Jayson Werth showed signs of breaking out of his early season slump on Sunday.
After a day off on Saturday, Werth was back in the starting lineup and went 1 for 3. He walked once, scored once and drove in his first run of the season with an RBI single in the fifth.
Werth is now hitting .130 for the season.
Nats move Escobar to leadoff spot, drop Taylor to ninth in order
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams made a few changes to his batting order Tuesday against the Red Sox.
Williams moved Yunel Escobar from the No. 2 spot in the lineup into the leadoff spot, where Michael Taylor was positioned the first seven games. Taylor dropped to ninth in the lineup Tuesday.
Outfielder Jayson Werth, who made his season debut Monday after beginning the season on the disabled list, moved up from the cleanup spot to second in the lineup.
Escobar has a .367 on-base percentage through seven games. He has a career .353 on-base percentage in 222 games batting first.
Nationals OF Jayson Werth goes hitless in return
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth went 0 for 3 in Monday's 9-4 loss to the Red Sox. Werth was playing his first game of the season after returning from a shoulder injury. A right fielder for most of 2014, Werth played left field in Monday's game.
Werth struck out in the first inning, grounded into a double play in the fourth and grounded out to close the sixth inning. Reed Johnson replaced Werth before the game finished.
"Things can change really quick," Werth said, via MLB.com. "You look back to last year and the year before, we've overcome more than this. It's just a game. We'll put it behind us and get ready for tomorrow."
Nationals activate Jayson Werth, option Matt den Dekker
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) The Nationals activated outfielder Jayson Werth from the 15-day disabled list Monday and optioned outfielder Matt den Dekker to Triple-A Syracuse.
Werth missed the first six games of the season while continuing to recover from January shoulder surgery. He went 1 for 6 with three walks and a home run during his rehab assignment with Class A Potomac. Werth is slated to spend this season in left field after spending most of his career in right field.
den Dekker went 0 for 2 in four games off the bench for the Nationals.
|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.
