Jayson Werth’s Return Near – FantasySP Blog

Jayson Werth’s Return Near

Washington National’s outfielder Jayson Werth is several games in to his return with minor league clubs Potomac and Syracuse.

Analysis: Jayson Werth may not be worth the money that the Nationals spent on him but he will produce when healthy. He’s in a lineup with Ryan Zimmerman, Bryce Harper and Michael Morse, so the RBI opportunities with be plenty. Werth is expected to make his return at some point next week so now is the time to be vigilant on the wire. Werth is available in over half of fantasy leagues which is a big shock considering he is a solid power bat. Manager Davey Johnson has hinted that Werth may be splitting time with Harper out in center field but they pay him too much money to sit on the bench. Werth most likely will push Harper to center and find a home for himself back in right field.

For those on the fence concerning Werth’s fantasy value, keep in mind that he has averaged 25 home runs and 18 stolen bases over the past four years. He’s not going to win any batting titles but his OBP and slugging percentage is very good outside of a down 2011 season.
