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

Advice: "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 in the 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.

Nationals placed OF Jayson Werth on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 16, with a left wrist contusion.

Advice: Werth suffered the injury when he was hit in the wrist by a pitch on Friday. No fracture or ligament damage was found in an MRI, but he'll require some extended rest. This is Werth's second stint on the disabled list this season, as he got a late start on the year after shoulder surgery. Michael Taylor figures to fill in during his absence.

Sun, May 24 Rotoworld
Jayson Werth (wrist) is expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Prospect infielder Wilmer Difo is expected to take his place on the active roster. Werth underwent an MRI on his left wrist Monday which reportedly showed no fracture or ligament damage, but the Nationals want to give him some extended rest. Michael Taylor figures to see regular at-bats during his absence and is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.

MLB.com's William Ladson reports that an MRI on Jayson Werth's left wrist confirmed that he has no fracture or ligament damage.

Advice: Ladson isn't sure whether or not Werth will be placed on the disabled list, but it sounds like he's at least avoided a serious injury. The outfielder hasn't played since being hit on the wrist by a pitch last Friday. More should be known about his status on Tuesday.

Jayson Werth (wrist) underwent an MRI Monday.

Advice: The Nationals were hoping that Werth would be feeling enough improvement by Monday that an MRI wouldn't be needed, but obviously that's not the case. The club is still holding out hope that he's merely dealing with a bad bruise on his left wrist, but they won't know for sure until the MRI results come back.

Jayson Werth (wrist) could undergo an MRI on Monday.

Advice: X-rays on Werth's left wrist came back clean, but the swelling needs to go down before they can get an accurate read from an MRI. Werth, who was injured when he was hit by a pitch Friday, will sit out again Sunday. "Hopefully it’s just a bruise," Nationals manager Matt Williams said.

Jayson Werth (wrist) is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Saturday.

Advice: Werth exited Friday's game after getting hit in the left wrist. The X-rays came back negative but it may take a few days to heal. Michael Taylor will start in left field and bat eighth. Saturday marks Werth's 11th absence of the season.
