Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is expected to sit out all three games of a weekend series against the Pittsburgh Pirates because of a hamstring injury.
Manager Davey Johnson hopes Werth can return Tuesday.
Johnson said Werth won't be put on the disabled list.
Werth is hitting .260 with four home runs this season.
