Outfielder Jayson Werth, who made his season debut Monday after beginning the season on the disabled list, moved up from the cleanup spot to second in the lineup.

Nationals OF Jayson Werth goes hitless in return
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth went 0 for 3 in Monday's 9-4 loss to the Red Sox. Werth was playing his first game of the season after returning from a shoulder injury. A right fielder for most of 2014, Werth played left field in Monday's game. 

Werth struck out in the first inning, grounded into a double play in the fourth and grounded out to close the sixth inning. Reed Johnson replaced Werth before the game finished. 

"Things can change really quick," Werth said, via MLB.com. "You look back to last year and the year before, we've overcome more than this. It's just a game. We'll put it behind us and get ready for tomorrow."

Nationals' Jayson Werth homers in rehab doubleheader
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth went 1 for 4 with two walks and a home run while playing in both games of a doubleheader with Class A Potomac Saturday.

Werth homered while playing seven innings in left field in the first game before coming back to go 0 for 2 as the designated hitter in the second game of the day. He's scheduled to take Sunday off and evaluate how his body feels before potentially being activated Monday, NatsInsider.com reports.

"That would be a standard thing, if he played and had to get going in two separate games, it’d be standard for him to get the day (off) anyway and get a work day and be ready to play the following day," manager Matt Williams said Saturday. "We’ll see how he comes out of it, whether that’s with us or another rehab game."

If Werth does come off the disabled list Monday, he'll do so with not as much spring work as usual.

"You (typically) end up with 60-ish at-bats at the end of spring," Williams said. "We don’t necessarily have that luxury at this point in the season. What we want to do is make sure he’s ready, his timing’s good, that he feels good about it, and get him there as quickly as possible, making sure he’s healthy and 100 percent ready to play."
