    Aug 2, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    Jayson Werth is off the disabled list and back in the Nationals’ lineup tonight, nearly three months after breaking his wrist on May 6. And he’s starting in center field for the first time since September of last season, as manager Davey Johnson has decided to play him there rather than Bryce Harper. Werth was…

  2. Oblique tear puts Ian Desmond on DL

    Jul 22, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Ian Desmond

    The Nationals suffered a big blow Sunday, with shortstop Ian Desmond heading off to the disabled list with a torn oblique. An MRI today revealed the extent of the injury, and Desmond is expected to miss at least a few weeks, CSNWashington.com’s Mark Zuckerman reports. Desmond has been fighting the oblique for at least a…

  3. Jayson Werth’s first rehab game pushed back to Saturday

    Jul 20, 2012, 8:10 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    Jayson Werth was originally scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Potomac this evening. However, Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com passes along word that the Nationals decided to scratch him due to a combination of the poor weather and some stiffness in his surgically-repaired left wrist. It’s not a major concern at this…

  4. Nationals targeting August 1 return for Jayson Werth “may be a bit too optimistic”

    Jul 12, 2012, 12:17 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    Jayson Werth still hasn’t been cleared to swing a bat yet 10 weeks after breaking his wrist on May 6, but Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that the wrist is healed and the Nationals continue to target August 1 for his return date. According to Zuckerman “that may be a bit too optimistic, but the…

  5. Jayson Werth aims to return from broken wrist by August 1

    Jun 20, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    Six weeks ago Jayson Werth was given a 9-12 week recovery timetable for his broken left wrist and he’s basically still on that same track, with manager Davey Johnson saying yesterday that the Nationals hope to have the outfielder back around August 1. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that Werth is no longer wearing a…

  6. Ryan Zimmerman scratched, a ‘manager’s decision’

    May 22, 2012, 6:57 PM EDT

    Ryan Zimmerman

    Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman was a late scratch Tuesday in what was termed a “manager’s decision” by a team spokesman. The spokesman said Zimmerman might be available to pinch-hit. Chad Tracy is starting at third base in his place. Zimmerman’s absence bodes well for Roy Halladay to continue his dominance of the Nationals. He’s…

  7. Wilson Ramos exits game with serious-looking knee injury

    May 12, 2012, 10:24 PM EDT

    wilson ramos getty

    Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos got a cleat caught in the ground while attempting to field a passed ball in the seventh inning Saturday against the Reds, causing his right knee to twist in an unnatural way. Ramos kept all weight off the knee as he was carried — by a trainer on each side —…

  8. Angels and Nationals should consider a smaller trade

    May 11, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Alberto Callaspo

    Many are trying to set the Nationals up with Peter Bourjos after they lost another starting outfielder to injury in Jayson Werth over the weekend. That’d be nice and all, but the artillery is lacking to pull it off. Instead, I’m thinking about a smaller deal here, if the two teams have in fact talked:…

  9. Ryan Zimmerman rejoins Nationals after disabled list stint

    May 8, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    ryan zimmerman getty

    As expected, the Nationals have activated Ryan Zimmerman from the disabled list after the third baseman missed 15 games with a shoulder injury. Zimmerman being placed on the DL is what motivated the Nationals to call up Bryce Harper, but obviously sending the 19-year-old phenom back to the minors ceased being an option almost immediately…

  10. Jayson Werth wants to shut up Phillies fans

    May 7, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    Jayson Werth is expected to miss three months after breaking his left wrist attempting a sliding catch in Philly last night, but the Phillies fans at Nationals Park gave him some extra motivation as he begins his rehab: “After walking off the field feeling nauseous knowing my wrist was broke and hearing Philly fans yelling…

  11. Jayson Werth undergoes wrist surgery, expected to miss “at least 12 weeks”

    May 7, 2012, 2:08 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    Last night after Jayson Werth broke his wrist attempting a diving catch in right field the Nationals announced that he was expected to miss six weeks. Today he underwent surgery and Bill Ladson of MLB.com talked to a team source who said Werth “will be out for more than six weeks” and guessed that it…

  12. Cole Hamels: ‘I was trying to hit’ Bryce Harper

    May 6, 2012, 11:48 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Cole Hamels decided to open his big mouth after his outing. It should cost him a five- or six-game suspension. Hamels plunked brash rookie Bryce Harper in the first inning of Sunday night’s game against the Nationals and admitted afterwards that he was trying to send a message. Here’s the quote from the Philadelphia Inquirer’s…

  13. UPDATE: Jayson Werth suffers broken left wrist

    May 6, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    11:30 p.m. EDT update: It was announced after the game Sunday that Werth had suffered a broken left wrist. He’ll see a specialist on Monday as the Nats go about determining whether he has any ligament damage. If it’s a simple break, then 6-8 weeks is probably the best-case scenario. If there’s more damage, then…

  14. Bryce Harper’s first career steal is of home

    May 6, 2012, 8:55 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper, Carlos Ruiz

    Bryce Harper put the Nationals on the board with his legs Sunday night against the Phillies. After getting hit by a Cole Hamels pitch in the first, he advanced to third on a Jayson Werth single and then stole home as Hamels made a pickoff throw to first. Harper pretty easily made it into home…

  15. Fun facts from the Braves’ 15-13 win over the Phillies

    May 3, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    To put it mildly, the Braves and Phillies played a wild one on Wednesday, with Atlanta winning 15-13 on Chipper Jones‘ walkoff homer in the 11th. It was the highest-scoring extra-inning game since 2006. Here are a few things one doesn’t see everyday: – Roy Halladay gave up eight runs, the most he had allowed…

  16. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 19, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Twins 6, Yankees 5: Justin Morneau hit two homers. That’s four homers in six games, which hopefully means that Morneau is back to his mashing ways. Jason Marquis, who missed most of spring training when his daughter was seriously injured in a bicycle accident, made his first ever start in Yankee Stadium and got the…

  17. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Apr 14, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth AP

    The first-place Washington Nationals. Yes, it’s much too early to take the standings all that seriously, but the Nationals are now 6-2 on the young season following a walkoff 2-1 win over the Reds last night in 13 innings. That’s the team’s best record since they moved from Montreal to Washington in 2005. The big…

  18. Rick Ankiel coming off disabled list tomorrow, will be Nationals’ starting center fielder

    Apr 13, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    ankiel getty wide

    Rick Ankiel is ready to return from his quadriceps injury and manager Davey Johnson said today that he’ll come off the disabled list as the Nationals’ starting center fielder. Roger Bernadina has started six of the Nationals’ seven games in center field, with Jayson Werth moving over from right field to take the other start.…

  19. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 11, 2012, 6:02 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Houston Astros

    Braves 6, Astros 4: Chipper Jones came off the disabled list, singled in his first at bat and hit a home run in his second. Dude is on death’s door and he hasn’t had functional knees since Bush’s first term yet he’s still the best hitter on this team.  Tyler Pastornicky hit his first MLB…

  20. Jeff Samardzija nearly goes distance in Cubs win

    Apr 8, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Jeff Samardzija

    Jeff Samardzija was hitting 97 mph on the gun in the ninth inning Sunday and nearly went the distance in a 4-3 victory over the Nationals. Samardzija appeared to have the third out in the ninth in a 4-1 game, but Starlin Castro committed a throwing error on Ryan Zimmerman‘s grounder to short. Manager Dale…

  21. Kerry Wood shows us his best Carlos Marmol

    Apr 5, 2012, 4:40 PM EDT

    Kerry Wood

    Entering a 1-0 game with one on and two outs in the eighth, Kerry Wood walked three straight batters to tie up Thursday’s matinee between the Cubs and Nationals. It wasn’t a case of Wood completely losing the strike zone, but he did keep just missing after getting to two strikes on both Adam LaRoche…

  22. Jayson Werth: 2011 will be “like a fart in the wind”

    Apr 2, 2012, 9:36 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    And they say poetry is dead. Here’s Jayson Werth on putting his awful 2011 behind him: “I feel confident about this season and this team and where I’m at and what I’ve done. Last year is just one year. I got six more years on this contract, and I plan on playing after this contract.…

  23. Nats, Braves are interested in Marlon Byrd

    Mar 27, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    Byrd_Marlon

    Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Nationals and Braves have expressed interest in acquiring Marlon Byrd from the Cubs. Makes sense on one level: each team could use an outfielder. The Nationals have been searching for a centerfielder forever, and Byrd could handle that probably as well as Jayson Werth could. The…

  24. Springtime Storylines: Are the Nationals ready to contend?

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: the upstart Washington Nationals. The Big Question: Are the Nationals ready to contend? After three straight last-place finishes, the Nationals…

  25. Bryce Harper says he’s ‘probably not’ going to make the Nationals

    Mar 13, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    But he added, “It’s all good, though.” Bruce Harper is expected back in Washington’s lineup on Wednesday after missing six days with a calf injury, but he thinks it’s already too late for him to win a spot on the Opening Day roster. “Probably not,” he answered when asked if he thinks he still has…
