Player Notes
Nationals manager Matt Williams indicated that Jayson Werth (shoulder) would probably start the season on the DL.

Advice: Werth is scheduled for three minor league at-bats on Wednesday as he works his way back from off-season shoulder surgery. While he might start the season on the DL, all signs point to a speedy return for the outfielder.

Jayson Werth (shoulder) indicated that he wasn't sure when he would be able to return.

Advice: Werth saw his first action of the spring on Monday, going 1-for-2 in a minor league game. He's recovering from a January shoulder surgery to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder. While he said he felt good following the game, he also noted that he didn't know how things would progress moving forward. Uncertainty aside, all signs point toward Opening Day or shortly thereafter for the veteran.

Jayson Werth (shoulder) hit in a minor league game Monday for the first time this spring.

Advice: It was a big step or Werth, who underwent surgery in January to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder. It's unlikely that he'll be ready for the start of the season at this point, but he might not have to miss much time.

Nationals manager Matt Williams admitted Sunday that Jayson Werth (shoulder) being ready for Opening Day would be "a stretch."

Advice: It comes as no surprise after Williams revealed recently that Werth still experiences some soreness in his surgically-repaired right shoulder when he tries to hit. The outfielder did have a good session of batting practice Saturday but isn't quite ready for game action yet and is simply running out of time. Werth seems likely to be ready around mid-April if he can avoid setbacks. Tyler Moore should see most of the at-bats in left field until Werth returns.

Mon, Mar 30 Rotoworld
Jayson Werth is scheduled to play defense only in a minor league contest on Saturday.

Advice: Werth is still experiencing some soreness in his surgically-repaired right shoulder when he's hitting, so he'll get his work in without stepping to the plate. At this point, it seems doubtful that he'll be in the Nationals starting lineup on Opening Day, but should be ready in early April.

Nationals manager Matt Williams acknowledged that Jayson Werth still experiences some soreness in his surgically-repaired right shoulder when he tries to hit.

Advice: "You do run out of time," Williams responded when asked whether Werth will be ready for Opening Day. The veteran outfielder still hasn't been cleared for full-on live batting practice and seems highly doubtful to be active on April 6. Nate McLouth is also at risk of missing the opener due to a shoulder injury, so it could be Tyler Moore in left field for the Nats.

Sat, Mar 28 Rotoworld
Jayson Werth (shoulder) took batting practice and played five innings in a minor league game Wednesday.

Advice: The Nationals will likely continue to keep him on the minor league side if they need to backdate a potential stint on the disabled list. Werth is still a possibility for Opening Day, but even if he misses it, it sounds like he'll be ready in the early part of the season.

Thu, Mar 26 Rotoworld
Jayson Werth (shoulder) could take at-bats by Wednesday or Thursday.

Advice: Werth has been playing defense in minor league games in recent days, and hitting is the next step in his recovery. There's still no timetable for Werth to get into Grapefruit League action. Being ready for Opening Day could be a stretch, but he shouldn't be too far behind, if at all.
