Nationals OF Jayson Werth not ready to hit in spring game
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Thursday outfielder Jayson Werth is still not ready to hit in a game, per MASNsports.com. He continues to feel soreness in his right shoulder when swinging.
“He’s still working through the swinging part of it,” Williams said, per NatsInsider.com. “But he’s playing defense, jumping from field to field to run bases and do the things he needs to do. So when he is ready to hit, then he’s ready to play. He’s not quite there yet, though.”
Werth has remained optimistic about being ready by Opening Day. Although, Williams isn't as sure.
“I still won’t (rule it out),” Williams said. “You do run out of time, though. There’s a question, sure. The fact he hasn’t had regular at-bats in spring training games makes me question that. But we’ll see.”
Opening Day still a possibility for Nationals' Jayson Werth

|(3/25/15) The Nationals have not closed the door on the possibility of outfielder Jayson Werth being ready for Opening Day, according to Comcast SportsNet Washington. Werth played five innings in left field in a minor-league game on Wednesday, as he continues to work his way back from January shoulder surgery. He has yet to make his spring debut.

|(3/23/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams said Monday that outfielder Jayson Werth (shoulder) played five innings in the outfield in a minor-league game and came out of the game sore but fine, masnsports.com reports.
Werth saw six chances in his five innings of work. He's returning from January shoulder surgery and has yet to see at-bats in game situations.
Jayson Werth to play outfield in Nationals' minor league game

|(3/22/15) Jayson Werth will increase his workload slightly on Sunday, as he continues to work his way back from shoulder surgery in January.
Werth played three innings in the outfield in a Nationals' minor league game on Friday. He didn't bat, and nothing was hit to him while he was in left field.
Nats manager Matt Williams said Werth will play five innings in the outfield on Sunday, but he still won't bat, per Chris Johnson of MASN.
Nationals' Jayson Werth to play defense in minor-league game
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that outfielder Jayson Werth will likely see some action in a minor-league spring game on Friday, per the Washington Post. With the Nationals managing the game, Werth will only play defense, and will be prohibited from throwing during the game, according to MASN Sports.
Werth is working his way back from January shoulder surgery, and is pushing to be ready for Opening Day on April 6. When asked about the number of at-bats he'll receive before the opener, he told the Post: "I don't know. Maybe five?"
|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.
