Nationals | Jayson Werth has knee soreness

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:25:57 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (knee) is dealing with right knee soreness and won't be in the lineup Wednesday, July 23, according to manager Matt Williams. The Nats are off Thursday, July 24, and Williams thinks it's enough time for Werth to heal.

Fantasy Tip: Given Werth's injury history, prepare for a longer absence. Combined with Ryan Zimmerman's hamstring-fueled DL trip, the Nat's lineup may be suffering a big hit. Nate McLouth would benefit if Werth requires extended inactivity.

Nationals | Bryce Harper update

He's likely to play all three outfield spots when he returns, sharing time with Ryan Zimmerman, Denard Span and Jayson Werth.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking like he'll be back at least before the next weekly lineup transaction period, so prepare your squad ahead of time.

Nationals | Jayson Werth plans to be aggressive

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 11:05:33 -0800

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth plans to be aggressive on the base paths this year, and manager Matt Williams' style of managing should lend nicely to that. Werth said his offensive ideology is "in line" with Williams'. The Nationals coaching staff is letting the players make their own reads and giving the veterans green lights to decide when to run. "That's the only way to steal bases," Werth said. "That's how base stealers steal bases. That's how guys become great base stealers. You don't become a good base stealer by getting steal signs and stealing. That's when you get thrown out. Those philosophies are right now. I'm really happy about that."

Fantasy Tip: Werth should be a lock to hit 20 home runs, depending on health. Along with increased opportunities to steal bags, despite some loss in speed due to age, Werth looks much more attractive. Don't rule out double-digit stolen bases with Williams at the helm.
