Latest Update Jayson Werth shortens swing to help ailing shoulder.   Sun Aug, 31, 01:37 AM

And it looks like it's working as Werth went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Mariners on Saturday. I had to do something to take the stress off my shoulder, Werth said. I was screwing around in the cage. It was similar to when I came back from my wrist injury in 2012. Since tweaking his swing, Werth has hit safely in six of his last seven games with two home runs, seven RBI, four runs scored and two stolen bases. So yeah, we'd say it's working.Analyst: Howard Bender

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   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.

  • Despite battling through shoulder issues, Werth has managed to produce of late, hitting. 421 with three extra-base hits, four RBI and five runs scored over his last seven games. He clearly is not playing at 100 percent, but as long as he can deal with the pain his .285 average with 13 home urns and 67 RBI are certainly worthy of a start in all league formats down the stretch.Analyst: Matthew Beck
