Jayson Werth's left wrist remains too swollen to allow him to resume baseball activities.

"They’re treating him aggressively," Nationals Manager Matt Williams said. "It’s multiple rounds of treatment every day. The problem is if the swelling gets int he joint, then it can be really stiff and if you start going at it hard, it just exacerbates the problem. We gotta calm it down first before we can get back at it." Werth is eligible for activation from the disabled list in a week, but it's looking unlikely that he'll be ready at that time. A clearer timetable for his return obviously won't be known until he's given the green light to resume swinging a bat.
