Report: Nationals OF Jayson Werth likely out until August
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who is on the disabled list with a wrist injury, had a CT scan on his left wrist. The results showed two small fractures. Werth, who has been on the 15-day DL since May 19, is likely out until at least August, a source told The Washington Post

Werth has only played in 27 games this season, after missing the first week with a shoulder injury. 

Michael Taylor will likely continue to get the majority of the playing time in left field while Werth is out, though the team could look for help from outside the organization as well.

Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman still stuck in slump at the plate
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman's struggles continued on Wednesday. Zimmerman was held hitless for the third straight game, as the Nationals beat the Cubs 3-0. 

Zimmerman hasn't scored a run since May 19. Over his last 10 contests, Zimmerman is hitting just .147 (5 for 35), though he does have a home run in that span. He has started every game for the Nationals this season, so a day off in the near future could do him well.
