Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth played in a minor league game on Monday.
Insight: He's recovering from a surgically-repaired shoulder. If he's not ready for Opening Day it shouldn't be a long wait until he's ready to go.
 
3/26/2015 3:51:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is still dealing with soreness in his shoulder, according to manager Matt Williams.
Insight: This is on his surically-repaired shoulder, so it is definitely concerning. We would not count on Werth being ready for Opening Day.
 
3/22/2015 12:15:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth (shoulder) could take at-bats at some point this week.
Insight: More specifically on Wednesday or Thursday. Werth likely will not be ready by Opening Day, but he should not be too far off.
 
1/22/2015 2:16:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth told the Washington Post that his goal is to be ready for the start of the 2015 season.
Insight: Werth received surgery to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder in January. Rehab for this type of injury typically takes two to three months, so that puts him on par with a possible opening day return. Werth went on to say he will not jeopardize further injury to play on opening day, but that is still his goal.
 
1/8/2015 4:23:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth will undergo arthroscopic surgery Friday on his right shoulder, and will likely be sidelined for the next 2-to-3 months.
Insight: This puts Werth's availability for the season-opener in extreme question. If he is not ready to play, Michael Taylor would likely find himself in the Opening Day lineup.
 
Cold10/6/2014 11:18:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is just 2-for 11 (.182) against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
Insight: Werth is 1-for-10 in the 2014 postseason and this tough matchup isn't likely to help.
 
10/5/2014 12:21:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth went 1-for-8 in an 18th inning affair against the Giants on Saturday.
Insight: Werth is struggling as he is hitting just .100 in the first two games of the NLDS. The Nationals have scored just three runs in 27 innings. Werth batted in the bottom of the 18th with Washington trailing 2-1 and down to their last out. He flew out to end the game.
 
10/4/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth has great numbers against Giants' starter Tim Hudson.
Insight: He has a career .386 average (17-for-44) against him, with four home runs and 12 RBI. Werth will need to help get the Nationals' offense going if they dont want to find themselves in a 2-0 hole.
 
9/26/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is not in Friday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: The Nationals will go with an outfield of Ryan Zimmerman, Denard Span and Bryce Harper. Werth put together a solid season, batting .287 with 16 HR, 81 RBI and an .837 OPS. The 36-homer 2009 season was a career year and this appears to be the new "normal."
 
9/25/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is hitting .316 with a home run and two doubles against Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler.
Insight: Wheeler will pitch the second game of a doubleheader on Thursday. Werth is a career .297 hitter against Mets starter Dillon Gee, who will take the mound in the first game. Werth is 4-for-9 in his last three games.
 
9/16/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth faces a tough test tonight against the Braves.
Insight: With Atlanta throwing out righty Aaron Harang, Werth could be line for a lousy game. He is a career .120 hitter (3-for-25) against Harang, with 11 strikeouts. However, overall, Werth has excelled this season. He is slashing .284/.383/.447 with 16 homers and 80 RBI.
 
9/12/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is not in Friday's lineup due to the flu.
Insight: He will likely return in a day or two. Nate Schierholtz is in right field on Friday.
 
9/2/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Jayson Werth is that rare hitter who is successful against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Insight: Werth is 9-for-24 (.375) with three home runs versus Kershaw. He's batting .288 with 16 HR, 76 RBI and 73 runs.
 
8/25/2014 9:56:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is 2-for-24 (.083) versus Phillies starter A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Werth had a big series against the Giants, with three consecutive two-hit games. He's batting .289 with 13 HR, 70 RBI and 70 runs, but he's not a great option for Monday.
 
8/23/2014 8:04:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth went 2-for-4 with two RBI against the Giants on Saturday night.
Insight: Werth also went 2-for-4 on Friday night. He has three RBI in the series and is 10-for-23 (.435) since returning to the Nationals lineup last Sunday.
 
8/22/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth took Giants starter Tim Hudson deep Friday night.
Insight: He now has four homers against Hudson in his career. He went 2-for-4 on the night and has gone 8-for-19 with two doubles, a homer, four RBI, four walks and five runs in his last six games after sitting out five straight with a shoulder injury. His homer Friday was his first since July 13.
 
8/22/2014 9:34:00 AM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is a career 15-for-41 (.366) hitter with four doubles, three home runs and 11 RBI against Giants starter Tim Hudson.
Insight: Werth has hits in his last four games and sees the ball very well off of Hudson, the Giants probable Friday starter. The outfielder is batting .302 with nine doubles and 12 RBI since the All-Star break but has been lacking in the long ball department as he hasn't gone deep since July 13.
 
8/18/2014 3:59:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth is in the starting lineup on Monday night versus the Diamondbacks according to James Wagner of the Washington Post.
Insight: Werth did not start on Sunday against the Pirates, but entered in the ninth as a pitch hitter and wound up scoring both the tying run in the ninth and the game-winning run in the 11th. The Nationals have held the outfielder out of the lineup for eight of the last nine games due to right shoulder inflammation. Werth and the Nationals are facing Diamondbacks left-handed pitcher Vidal Nuno Monday night.
 
8/18/2014 3:53:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth (shoulder inflammation) didn't start, but did get into the game as a pinch hitter and scored the game-winning run in the 11th inning. He'll return to the lineup Monday night.
Insight: Werth has struggled to match last season's totals and has dealt with injuries in August to further reduce his fantasy value. If healthy he can help over the final six weeks.
