Jayson Werth is scheduled to begin a brief minor-league rehab assignment tonight at Single-A as he comes back from a hamstring injury.

Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that the current plan is for Werth to come off the disabled list Saturday, which would be the first day he’s eligible to do so.

Werth was off to a relatively slow start before the injury, hitting .260 with four homers and a .708 OPS in 27 games.

    I wasn’t happy about Werth leaving my Phils on a paper chase…but now I’m kinda glad he did.

      You realize he didn’t leave the Phils on a “paper chase” until they didn’t offer him anything close to market value. I’m not saying 7 years/$126m was market value but they low balled him and claimed they didn’t have the money to sign him afterwards and THEN proceeded to land Cliff Lee.
