Werth went 2-for-5 with an RBI double, solo homer and two runs in Friday's 8-5 victory over the Rockies.

Werth went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and scored twice in Thursday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Werth's fourth-inning blast provided all the offense Max Scherzer and the Nats would need in Thursday's shutout victory. The veteran's homer was his fifth in August, the most longballs he's hit in any month this season. Despite his game-winning drive, Werth is still just 3-for-20 over his last six games, dropping his batting average to .251 through 411 at-bats this year.

Werth is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Werth saw a 46-game on-base streak end Friday and went 3-for-16 over his last four games, so manager Dusty Baker decided to hold the veteran Werth out for the second Sunday in a row. Chris Heisey will get the start in left field in Werth's place.

Werth hit a two-run homer and walked in a 2-for-4 game in Monday's win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Werth now has at least one extra base hit in four of his past five games, and he now has three homers in that stretch. The blast was Werth's 16th, which matches his total from 2014, when he hit .292/.394/.455 over 147 games. His plate discipline hasn't been as good this year, but this recent power surge has restored his power to its previous levels. Monday's performance raised his 2016 batting line .255/.345/.445.

Werth extended his on-base streak to 40 games Wednesday against the Indians. He went 2-for-3 with a walk, double, three-run homer and scored three times in the win.

EDGE Analysis

Werth has reached base in every game since June 20, raising his on-base percentage from .317 to .343 during his 40-game streak. The veteran has only mustered 13 RBI during the run, but has made up for it by drawing 30 walks in that time. Werth second-inning home run Wednesday was his 15th of the year and put him on pace for his first 20-homer season since 2013.

Werth is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will make way for Ben Revere in left field in what was a scheduled day off. Given how Trea Turner has taken to his leadoff and center field duties, the Nationals will likely be giving Revere a handful starts in left field over the final two months, which will come at the expense of Werth.
