Slumping Nationals Anthony Rendon, Jayson Werth sitting Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2015) Slumping second baseman Anthony Rendon and left fielder Jayson Werth have both been benched by the Nationals for the Friday night game in San Francisco. Danny Espinosa and Clint Robinson will assume those positions, respectively.

Rendon hasn't produced a multi-hit game since Aug. 2. He is 7-for-38 since then. Werth has just five hits in 42 at-bats this month.


Nationals' Werth feeling good despite poor results since DL activation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2015) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is not happy with his results at the plate since returning from the disabled list in late July.

Although the left wrist injury that forced him to miss more than two months is healed, he is batting just .151 (8 for 53) with a .264 slugging percentage in 15 games since his activation.

“I wouldn’t say it’s frustrating but I’d say it’s been a little challenging because I feel like my timing has been good,” Werth said, per The Washington Post. “And I feel like all my work and drills and all the things that I do have also been good. My pitch recognition has been good. I’ve had good at-bats. Sometimes when you don’t feel good or you’re out of sync, you don’t really expect results. It’s been weird because I feel good. It’s just the results.”

Nationals manager Matt Williams appears to be preaching patience with the veteran outfielder since he missed a lot of games.

“It’s a work in progress, it’s timing, it’s all of that,” Williams said. “You look up and he has 170-some at-bats for the whole season. It’s not like riding a bike. And generally, he takes a little bit longer. He’s going to continue to be a big part of our success if we can get him rolling with [Ryan Zimmerman] and Anthony [Rendon] and have some semblance of that lineup back that’ll do nothing but help us.”

Nationals OF Jayson Werth (wrist) wants to return to club Aug. 1


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) 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."
