Jayson Werth (groin) not starting Friday

Jayson Werth (groin) is out of the Nationals' lineup Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Werth tweaked his groin Wednesday and is being held out tonight. Chris Heisey is batting 7th and playing LF in his place Friday. Werth should be considered day-to-day for now.

Jayson Werth suffers a groin injury

Jayson Werth was lifted from Wednesday's win over the Braves with a groin spasm.

Fantasy Impact

"Groin spasm" is a new one. Nationals manager Dusty Baker passed along that colorful injury description after the game. Werth initially sustained the injury while checking his swing on a 1-0 pitch from Julio Teheran in the third inning. The veteran outfielder should be considered day-to-day and will be reevaluated on Thursday.

Jayson Werth out of the lineup on Tuesday

Jayson Werth is not in the Nationals' lineup on Tuesday. Brian Goodwin will get the start in left field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Impact

The Nationals have the benefit of being able to rest their stars, so this is just a maintenance day for Werth. Considering that he is 1-for-16 in his career against Jose Fernandez, fantasy owners likely aren't missing much with Werth's absence.

Jayson Werth drives in a run

Jayson Werth was 1-for-3 Sunday with an RBI double in Washington's rain-shortened 6-2 loss to the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Werth has RBIs in three consecutive games and is 4-for-13 in that time frame. He'll face Wei-Yin Chen tonight, against whom he is 2-for-5 with a HR and three strikeouts.

Jayson Werth hits HR No. 20

Jayson Werth was 2-for-4 on Wednesday with his 20th HR of the season, reaching that milestone for the fifth time in his career and first time since 2013.

Fantasy Impact

The year 2016 has been a resurgence for Werth, who now has 61 RBI and 72 runs scored to go along with his 20 jacks. Most importantly for Werth, he's been healthy all year long.
