5-Jayson Werth

Here is another key member of the Nats working his way back from injury. Werth returned a week ago after missing over two months because of a wrist injury. He has four hits in 21 at-bats since his activation. D’back pitchers should be aware of him as he has a history of beating up their pitching. In 279 career plate appearances, Werth is hitting .315 with a .398 on-base percentage and 14 home runs. Last year, he hit .320 with a .400 OBP vs. the Snakes.
