Nationals LF Jayson Werth swinging practice bat
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5:39 pm ET) Nationals left fielder Jayson Werth is making progress in his recovery from a fractured wrist, the Washington Times is reporting.
Werth was able to swing a fungo bat -- a lightweight bat used to practice hitting balls to fielders -- on Saturday, which is significant given just a few weeks ago he was limited to just holding and gripping a bat without swinging.
Werth has been on the 15-day disbaled list since late May.
Nationals' Jayson Werth holding bat but still not swinging

|(6/20/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is able to hold a bat, manager Matt Williams said on Saturday, per MLB.com.
Werth is recovering from fractures in his left wrist. While he can grip the bat, he still hasn't progressed to swinging it, Williams said.
Williams added, "I don't anticipate any issues with (his rehab)."
Jayson Werth throws before Nationals' game

|(6/19/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth continues to work his way back from fractures in his left wrist.
The injury is to Werth's non-throwing hand, but he was able to play catch on the field before Washington's game on Friday.
Werth didn't appear to have a split or any protective device on beneath his glove, per the Washington Post.
Nationals OF Jayson Werth (wrist) wants to return to club Aug. 1
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/3/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth has set a clear goal for when he wants to return to his team.
“My goal is to be back with the club Aug. 1,” Werth said, via The Washington Post's James Wagner. “Whether it’s realistic or not I don’t know. Everyone heals at their own rate. I’ve been assured that when it stops hurting I’ll be good to go. I’ll let pain be my guide.”
Werth has two small fractures in his left wrist, which placed him on the 60-day disabled list.
Werth said that the reason a CT scan was delayed for two weeks was that an x-ray returned negative and an MRI did not reveal any breaks or ligament damage. However, if he was unable to progress into baseball activities by last week, Werth was going to go ahead with the CT scan.
“This is just a little bump in the road," Werth said. "I’ll be fine. I’ll be at 100 percent. I think the silver lining in the whole thing is that it’s giving my shoulder more time to heal. I was starting to feel good when this happened and I think I would have been fine. I know I’ll be fine when I come off the DL this time."
Report: Nationals OF Jayson Werth likely out until August
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/28/15) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who is on the disabled list with a wrist injury, had a CT scan on his left wrist. The results showed two small fractures. Werth, who has been on the 15-day DL since May 19, is likely out until at least August, a source told The Washington Post.
Werth has only played in 27 games this season, after missing the first week with a shoulder injury.
Michael Taylor will likely continue to get the majority of the playing time in left field while Werth is out, though the team could look for help from outside the organization as well.
|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.
