Latest Update Werth (illness) is back in the lineup Saturday Sat Sep, 13, 03:11 PM
Crushes first-pitch fastballs and is a good low-ball hitter. A great athlete with a big frame, he has power, patience at the plate and some speed. Knows how to take a walk. Is a grinder who can play all three outfield positions.
Flaws: : His all-out style can lead to injuries, which was especially the case in the past. He's streaky, and will pile up strikeouts when he's not in a zone at the plate. Doesn't make the most of his athleticism on the base-paths.
He sat out "Friday night's contest with flu-like symptoms, but is back in the lineup Saturday, hitting third and playing right field.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Sounds like general fatigue and doesn't seem to be anything to worry about. Nothing a little rest and relaxation can't fix. The Nationals have a pretty comfortable lead in the NL East and can afford to rest guys down the stretch. Unfortunately the fantasy game doesn't work too well with that and you'll have to keep track of when he'll be out of the lineup so you can adjust yours.Analyst: Howard Bender
It looks like just a simple day off for Werth who has started the last 23-straight games. Left-handed hitting Nate Schierholtz will fill in for Werth in right field and face righty Dillon Gee on Friday.Analyst: Howard Bender
This is a very "Werth-like" line. His all-around game has been solid this year and he should be very productive for fantasy owners down the stretch.Analyst: David Kerr
