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

EDGE Analysis

The Nationals have again chosen to rest some of their veteran regulars Sunday, so Werth will head to the bench in favor of Victor Robles in right field. The 38-year-old is hitting just 5-for-50 during the month of September and his average sits at a season-low .226.

Werth is not in the lineup Friday against the Mets, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dusty Baker elected to give most of the regulars a day off, so Werth will head to the bench for the first time since Sept. 12. In his place, Rafael Bautista earns a start in right while Alejandro De Aza is set to man left for the series opener.

Werth (shoulder) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth is back in the lineup for the first time since Sept. 6, as he's been dealing with a shoulder injury for the past week. He will set up in right field while batting seventh for Wednesday's contest. Since returning from the DL (toe) on Aug. 28, Werth is hitting .107/.161/.250 with one home run and five RBI in eight games.

Werth (shoulder) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Braves, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was a chance he'd be ready to come back for this contest, but will in fact need at least another day off. He tested his shoulder in the cage and it apparently didn't go well, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports, so he may be slightly worse than day-to-day. Adam Lind and Howie Kendrick will start in left field and right field, respectively.

Werth (shoulder) will not play until Tuesday at the earliest, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth's shoulder is still acting up, so the Nats will allow him to rest through Monday's off day before re-evaluating his status. The 38-year-old has logged 28 at-bats since his return from a toe injury in late August, collecting three hits (including a homer) with six strikeouts.

Werth (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Howie Kendrick and Alejandro De Aza will man the corner outfield spots again with Werth still nursing shoulder soreness. The injury was the result of a hit-by-pitch during his rehab assignment, and his condition worsened during his first game back with Washington. With expanded rosters, there's no pressing need for a DL move, but it's uncertain if Werth will be available in any capacity for the remainder of the series.

Werth (shoulder) is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth will sit out again Friday as he continues to deal with a shoulder injury. There's yet to be any indication that he'll need to be placed on the disabled list, so consider Werth day-to-day for now. With Werth out, the Nationals will head into Friday's game with Howie Kendrick, Michael Taylor, and Alejandro De Aza in the outfield.

Werth is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies due to a shoulder injury, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth's shoulder has been bothering him since he was hit by a pitch during his rehab assignment, and the issue apparently worsened in his first game back from the disabled list, which could help explain his recent struggles (he's just 3-for-28 (.107) in eight games since returning from the DL). The good news is the veteran outfielder doesn't seem too worried about the issue, saying he doesn't expect to miss more than two games because of it.

Werth is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Werth has made four straight starts in right field, but has just one base hit over that span. Even with lefty Brent Suter on the hill for the opposing Brewers, Werth will get the day off while Wilmer Difo draws the start in right.
