Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth won't play Sunday against Arizona.
Insight: He was originally in the starting lineup but manager Davey Johnson later replaced him with Scott Hairston. Assuming Werth doesn't make a pinch-hitting appearance, he'll finish the season with a career-best .318 average in 129 games.

Hot9/2/2013 11:34:00 AM
Description: Washington right fielder Jayson Werth has been red-hot lately. But if there's any pitcher who can put out his fire, it's Phillies lefthander Cole Hamels.
Insight: Werth's career average against the southpaw is a pitiful .167 in 18 at bats. It's tough to take Werth (.323, 21 HR, 65 RBI) out of the lineup with the way he's been hitting but Monday isn't a favorable matchup for him.
 
Hot9/2/2013 9:14:00 AM
Description: Jayson Werth kept the Nationals' wild card hopes alive by driving in the game-winning run Sunday against the Mets.
Insight: Werth's double capped a three-run rally by the Nats, who are now two games above .500 with 26 games left on the schedule. Left for dead about a month ago, the Nats are right back in it and Werth deserves most of the credit. In 139 post All-Star at bats, he's hitting .367 with 11 HR and 32 RBI.
 
Hot9/1/2013 10:22:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth elevated his play in August.

8/29/2013 9:43:00 AM
Description: Washington right fielder Jayson Werth has homered three times in his last six games.
Insight: He only went 5-for-22 (.227) in that span, but he's making his hits count. The right fielder has had one of his best seasons, hitting .324 with 20 blasts, 60 RBI, 65 runs and a .933 OPS in 407 plate appearances.
 
Hot8/25/2013 12:47:00 PM
Description: Washington right fielder Jayson Werth (foot) is back in the lineup Sunday.
Insight: Werth sat out Saturday due to a right foot infection. He's hitting .384 with nine home runs and a 1.142 OPS since the All-Star break, so fantasy owners should be happy to have him back.

Insight: Werth (.328, 17 HR, 49 RBI) may have injured himself on a slide at home plate. He went 3-for-4 before Roger Bernadina took his place at the start of the seventh inning. The Nationals are calling him day-to-day.

8/7/2013 10:54:00 PM

Insight: Werth went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two runs in the game and is hitting .317 with 45 RBI, 51 runs and a .908 OPS. He hasn't had an OPS that high since 2010, his last season with the Phillies.

8/5/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Washington right fielder Jayson Werth injured his hand Sunday against the Brewers, but his X-rays came back negative. He is in the lineup for Monday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: Werth stayed in the game and this shouldn't affect his status going forward. He was already dealing with a tweeked groin, but neither injury should change his status for Monday.
