Jayson Werth began his rehab in Triple A Syracuse last night. Werth has been out since early May due to a broken wrist.
The Nationals star right fielder went 0-3 including grounding out into a double play.
The Nationals have said that they aren't going to rush him back. And why should they? They have three very capable outfielders in Roger Bernadina, Bryce Harper, and Michael Morse. Bernadina has been swinging a hot bat lately and Morse and Harper are as good as ever.
Some reports have stated that the Nationals are planning on having Werth back in the line-up soon. He could even return as soon as the end of the month.
Once Werth does return, the Nationals have a very important decision to make: With Roger Bernadina swing a .400+ bat right now, do you sit him for somebody returning from wrist surgery?
