Jayson Werth RF WAS 2 Days

Werth is not in the lineup Wednesday, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

Manager Matt Williams is giving all of the Nationals the day off Wednesday after they clinched a playoff berth Tuesday, and likely enjoyed themselves thoroughly late into the night. Nate Schierholtz will get the start in right field, but Werth and the rest of the regulars will be back in action sooner than later.

Werth (illness) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Mets.

Werth missed Friday's game due to flu-like symptoms, but is apparently feeling well enough to get back in there Saturday. He will take his normal spot in right field and will bat third for the Nats on Saturday.

Werth is dealing with the flu and it will hold him out Friday, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports.

Werth was apparently scheduled to have the day off, but it's possible the flu will keep him out more than just the one day he had scheduled off. He is considered day-to-day and should return to the lineup at some point in the near future.

Werth is out of the lineup Friday against the Mets.

Werth will get the day off Friday following a 1-for-3 night at the plate Thursday, also scoring a run. Nate Schierholtz gets the call in right field in his place and will bat eighth for the Nationals.

Werth went 1-for-2 Monday with two walks, a solo home run and two stolen bases.

Over his last 10 games, Werth is hitting .353 (12-for-34) with four homers, four steals, six runs scored and 10 RBI. It looks like he's primed for a big September.

Werth went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run to lead the Nationals to a victory over the Mariners on Saturday.

That's back-to-back games now in which Werth has hit a homer. For the season, he's batting .288 with 72 runs, 15 home runs, 75 RBI, and 7 stolen bases.

Werth got a start at DH Friday with the Nationals playing in Seattle, and went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run off Felix Hernandez.

The Nats shockingly lit up King Felix for four home runs, and six long balls in total on the night. In seven games since he missed a bit of time due to shoulder issues, Werth is batting .360 (9-for-25) with two homers and seven RBI.

Werth was 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against San Francisco on Friday night.

He missed a handful of games earlier this month with a balky shoulder, but appears to be healthy now. He has 13 home runs and 67 RBI to go with a solid .285 average, and remains a key part of the streaking Nationals' offense.

Werth (shoulder) is batting third and playing right field Monday.

He had missed five straight games prior to Sunday's pinch-hit appearance, where he went 1-for-1 with a walk and two runs in an 11-inning victory, but he is now healthy enough to start, and should once again be a staple in the middle of the order going forward.

Werth (shoulder) made his return to the lineup a dramatic one on Sunday, drawing a walk as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning and scoring the tying run, then doubling in his second plate appearance and coming around to score the winning run in an 11-inning victory.

It was his first action in a week. The fact that Werth stayed in the game in right field, and then was able to rip a line drive double into left field, bodes well for his ability to get back into the starting lineup in the very near future, possibly even Monday against the Diamondbacks.
