Jayson Werth returns from knee issue
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds, after sitting out the team's previous game with a knee injury.

Werth got two days off with the offday Thursday, which allowed him to get past the soreness that was bothering him earlier in the week. He is hitting .377/.472/.852 in 16 July games.

Jayson Werth getting a few days to rest sore right knee
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams said outfielder Jayson Werth is dealing with a sore right knee, which is an injury that has been lingering, according to MASNsports.com. The thinking behind keeping Werth out of the lineup Wednesday at Colorado is it will give him two days off coupled with Thursday's off-day.

Werth is having a big month at the plate in July, batting .377 with a .472 on-base percentage, .852 slugging percentage and 1.325 OPS in 16 games. He also has six home runs, 11 doubles, 16 runs and 20 RBI.

Werth is having a strong month, as he has eight multi-hit games in 14 starts. He is batting .385 (20 for 52) with six home runs, nine doubles, 16 runs and 20 RBI in July.

Fantasy Analysis | 1405456676
Another mechanical change working wonders for Jayson Werth
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Around June 15 last year, Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth became a different player. After looking like he'd play out the last few years of his contract in relative obscurity, a victim of Father Time or Mother Nature or whatever living embodiment of a fundamental abstraction you credit for the aging process, he began performing at an MVP level, hitting .349 with 20 home runs and a 1.033 OPS over his final 93 games. He credited a mechanical change -- specifically, holding his hands higher.

We didn't see that version of Werth over the first three months of this season, which of course had everyone assuming regression again, but since the start of July -- a span of only 11 games -- he's batting .375 (15 for 40) with six home runs, or half of his season total.

And wouldn't you know a mechanical change is at the root of it all?

I made reference to it in a review of my rankings on the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, but according to The Washington Post, Werth's hot streak began about the time he decided to stand taller in the batter's box. It sounds like a small change to me, but if his mechanics are that persnickety -- and we have evidence that they are -- maybe it propels him another MVP-caliber finish.

Jayson Werth plates four runs in win over Phillies
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth came up big at the dish Sunday against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Werth belted a three-run home run off Kyle Kendrick in the opening frame and singled in a run in the ninth inning. He finished 2 for 3 with a walk, two runs scored and four RBI in a 10-3 victory. He enters the All-Star break with a .278/.366/.441 slash line with 12 homers and 54 RBI in 345 at-bats.
