Jayson Werth clubs first August homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth homered for the first time in nearly a month and a half Friday, in a 10-3 loss.

Werth, who has been bothered by a shoulder injury, hit a solo home run to left in the fourth inning, with the Nationals already trailing. He ultimately finished the game 2 for 4 with one run scored and one RBI.

Friday's home run was Werth's first since July 13, before the All-Star break. Still, he is hitting .311/.409/.444 overall since the break. 


Change for Jayson Werth may not be for the better


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/19/2014) Here's what we know: Jayson Werth has a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder but will attempt to play through it after receiving a cortisone shot Wednesday.

Here's what The Washington Post recently reported: The injury has compelled him to shorten his swing in a manner not unlike that of 2012, when he returned from a broken wrist.

The problem with that? He hit only five home runs in 300 at-bats in 2012.

That's partially what made last year's performance so shocking. He appeared to have regressed the year before. Turns out he just made a change to his swing -- the same one he says he's made now.

Granted, he's 2 for 5 with a double since returning, so no need to sound the alarm, but if you own Werth in Fantasy, you're not out of the woods yet.


Jayson Werth makes return to starting lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jayson Werth shortens swing to avoid aggravating shoulder injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth announced after Sunday's game against the Pirates that he has made an adjustment to shorten his swing, which he hopes will alleviate any impact on his injured right shoulder.

Werth said he made a similar change when he returned from a broken wrist in 2012, according to The Washington Post.

"I think it really helped," he said. "[I did it] just to take pressure off the shoulder, the AC joint. I’ve never had this before so I’m kind of just tinkering around, trying to figure out something that’s going to work. But I think we’re close. I’ve been getting every indication that chances are I’m not going to injure it, unless I do something stupid out there. I felt it was worth the risk [Sunday]. In a game like that, I wanted to keep the streak going and win a game. So I went for it."

No issues with anything else, according to the picture. It’ll just calm it down and get the inflammation out of there. But during the process, he can’t play. We’ve got to shut him down for a couple days at least."
