Nationals' Jayson Werth still aiming to be ready by season opener
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who was limited in workouts Thursday, said his surgically repaired right shoulder feels good and he will ramp up activities at the eight-week mark in his recovery, according to The Washington Post. Werth underwent surgery Jan. 9.
Werth is still aiming to be ready by opening day, but added he will be cautious in his recovery.
“You got to err on the side of caution,” Werth said. “You come back too early and then you have a setback or something like that so it’s a fine line. But our trainers and doctors are on top of it. I feel like I have a good sense of where I’m at and where I want to be so it’s just a time thing. It’s good to get down here and have our guys, so to speak, looking at it and caring for it. And it’s just good to be back around everybody.”
Nationals' Williams: McLouth, Werth limited, Span a full-go Thursday

|(2/25/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that everyone arrived at camp as of Wednesday. He said that Nate McLouth (shoulder) and Jayson Werth (shoulder) will be limited on Thursday, and Denard Span (hernia) will be a "full-go," per the Washington Times.
Nationals' Jayson Werth pleads guilty, sentenced to 5 days in jail
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(1/29/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth will serve five days in jail after pleading guilty to reckless driving, reports The Washington Post.
Werth was pulled over in July by Virginia State Police after driving 105 mph in a 55 mph zone and Werth did not necessarily disagree with the assessment.
"It's possible I exceeded 90 miles per hour," Werth said in court.
Werth was initially convicted of reckless driving Dec. 5, but appealed the verdict. He was originally sentenced to 10 days in jail, but it was reduced to five after Werth's guilty plea.
The prosecutor said Werth will turn himself in Friday and begin serving his sentence, according to NBC4's Northern Virginia Bureau.
Nationals' Werth (shoulder): My goal is to be ready by opening day
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on the AC joint in his right shoulder Jan. 9, said he still has some normal residual discomfort from the operation but feels better, per The Washington Post.
While Werth is expected to undergo 2-3 months of rehab, which puts his status for opening day in jeopardy, he remains hopeful of a quick recovery because his operation was minimally-invasive and with no complications.
“I don’t want to do anything to jeopardize the rest of my career but also want to get on the field an play,” he said. “It’s a balance. … As soon as I’m ready, I’ll be back. … My goal is opening day. If I can’t make opening day in D.C., then I want to make opening day in Boston. I’m going to try to be back as soon as I can without doing something stupid.”
Nationals' Jayson Werth undergoes successful shoulder surgery
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/9/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth underwent successful shoulder surgery on Friday, the team announced.
Werth had arthroscopic surgery on his right AC joint. Doctors did not find any "structural abnormalities" in his shoulder during the procedure. He's expected to miss 2-3 months while rehabbing the injury.
The 35-year-old hit .292/.394/.455 over 534 at-bats last year.
|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.
