Sep 12 - 3:40 PM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Jayson Werth (shoulder) will be out until at least Tuesday.

Werth's shoulder has been barking for the last week or so and the Nationals want to be sure he's healthy for the postseason. He just missed three months with a bone bruise in his left foot. Alejandro De Aza is starting in right field for Washington on Saturday against the Phillies.
Sep 9 - 4:43 PM

Jayson Werth (shoulder) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday night.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said after Wednesday's game that Werth has a minor shoulder issue. It's part of the reason the Nats called up top outfield prospect Victor Robles, but Alejandro De Aza will get the start in right field Thursday versus the Phillies. Adam Lind is in left field and Michael Taylor is in center.
Sep 7 - 3:57 PM

Jayson Werth returned from the disabled list in grand fashion Monday against the Marlins, going 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored.

Fresh off missing three months with a bone bruise in his left foot, Werth received a curtain call after taking Jose Urena deep in the bottom of the fourth inning. He later singled in a long at-bat as part of a six-run sixth for Washington. Werth had eight homers and an .814 OPS through his first 47 games prior to the injury and could help in deeper mixed fantasy leagues down the stretch.
Aug 28 - 10:58 PM

Nationals activated OF Jayson Werth from the 60-day disabled list.

Werth is starting in right field and batting seventh Monday versus Marlins right-hander Jose Urena after missing nearly three months with a bone bruise in his left foot. He'll be the Nationals' primary right fielder for however long Bryce Harper (knee) remains sidelined.
Aug 28 - 3:35 PM

Jayson Werth (foot) will be activated from the disabled list ahead of Monday's series opener against the Marlins.

Werth went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks in his sixth and final rehab game Sunday at High-A Potomac. He had a cool .814 OPS with eight home runs in 47 games for Washington when he landed on the disabled list three months ago with a bone bruise in his left foot. The veteran outfielder should carry deep-league fantasy value down the stretch on a first-place Nationals team, though he'll probably get regular days off out of the gate.
Aug 28 - 1:11 PM

Jayson Werth (foot) went 1-for-3 with a single Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Syracuse.

Werth, out since early June with a bone bruise in his left foot, also played five innings in left field. He appears on track for a return around the end of the month and should provide a boost to the banged up Nats' outfield.
Aug 22 - 9:25 AM

Jayson Werth (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

Werth has been on the disabled list since early June with a bad bone bruise in his left foot, but he appears to have finally turned a corner with his recovery and is ready for game action. It's unclear how many rehab games he'll require given that he's been out so long, but a return before the end of August is possible. The Nationals could use him given how banged up their outfield is.
Aug 20 - 9:03 AM

Jayson Werth (foot) is reporting to the Nationals' spring training facility in West Palm Beach, Florida.

He'll work out there for the next couple of days before possibly embarking on a minor league rehab assignment over the weekend. Werth has been on the disabled list since early June with a bone bruise in his left foot. The veteran outfielder should be ready for activation around the final week of August or first week of September, assuming he can avoid setbacks.
Aug 16 - 11:33 AM

Jayson Werth (foot) said Wednesday that he thinks he's 1-2 weeks away from beginning a rehab assignment.

Werth took at-bats in a simulated game Wednesday and will resume running on the field Thursday. He's been out since early June with a foot injury.
Aug 9 - 3:49 PM

Jayson Werth (foot) "is hitting, but just not able to run yet," Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Monday.

Werth has been able to run some on a weight-limiting treadmill, but when he might be cleared to run on the field again isn't known. He's already missed over two months of action and his return is obviously not imminent.
Aug 7 - 6:26 PM

Jayson Werth (foot) will take at-bats in a simulated game at West Palm Beach.

Werth will also be testing out his foot by running when he takes part in the simulated game. He has been working on the treadmill without pain and looks to be closing in on a return from a bone bruise in his left foot which has kept him on the shelf since the beginning of June. He could potentially rejoin the team next week.
Aug 2 - 4:10 PM

Nationals transferred OF Jayson Werth from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move frees up a 40-man roster spot. Werth remains out indefinitely with nagging soreness in his left foot.
