Manager Dusty Baker said Werth (toe) is progressing but hasn't resumed baseball activities yet, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth continues to receive treatment on his injured toe, and while he has recently progressed to conditioning exercises in the pool, he remains a ways away from embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment. He'll continue to slowly work his way back, while a further update on his status should be available when the Nationals return from their road trip Thursday.

Manager Dusty Baker said Werth (toe) is still a ways away from returning, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth landed on the disabled list earlier in the week after fouling a ball off his toe. While it was originally thought that he would be ready to return from the DL once eligible, it appears the ailment may be more serious than originally thought. His foot is still pretty swollen, so the Nationals will likely wait for that to go down before determining Werth's next step.

Werth (toe) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Werth will head to the disabled list as a result of a foul ball that hit his toe Saturday night. The Nationals don't expect him to miss more than a handful of days with the ailment, so it seems like he'll be back after the minimum 10 days on the shelf. Ryan Raburn was called up from the minors to replace him.

Werth (toe) will be placed on the disabled list Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth was sore after fouling a ball off his toe Saturday, and although X-rays came back negative, it seems like the Nationals are going to take the cautious approach with their starting left fielder and keep him out of action at least 10 days. Ryan Raburn is expected to be called up to fill the void.

X-rays taken on Werth's toe came back negative, but the veteran could still miss a few games, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. "That's the same toe he fouled the ball off [in spring training], and I think he missed two or three games then," Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. "He's not looking good, but the X-rays were negative, but he's on crutches. It's not looking good for now."

EDGE Analysis

The club hasn't ruled out a DL stint, but for the moment no move seems imminent. Brian Goodwin will patrol left field while Werth is sidelined.

Werth (foot) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth was in quite a bit of pain Saturday after fouling a ball off his foot and will sit out Sunday's contest in order to give his injured foot additional time to heal. It doesn't sound like he'll require a trip to the disabled list, though we'll just have to wait and see what team's plans are for their veteran outfielder. Brian Goodwin will take over in left field Sunday.

Werth said his left foot is sore after fouling a ball off it in the ninth inning of Saturday's game against the A's, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Werth seemed to be in excruciating pain after the incident, but finished the at-bat by singling to right field before being replaced by Wilmer Difo. The 38-year-old outfielder has started the last five games, so it wouldn't be a major surprise if the Nats had him sit out Sunday's series finale. Adam Lind would be the most likely replacement for him in left field.

Werth went 2-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's rout of the A's.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slumped over the final weeks of May, and even with Friday's performance Werth has a .163/.293/.347 slash line with two homers, six RBI and six runs in his last 14 games. The Nats' potent offense has been providing him with run-producing opportunities even as he's struggled to collect hits, and as a result Werth has a high fantasy floor as long as he can stay off the DL.

Werth is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

After making eight straight starts in left field, Werth will relinquish the position for a day to Adam Lind. The veteran outfielder has found himself in a bit of a slump of late, going 4-for-38 (.129) at the plate over his last nine contests.
