Nationals | Jayson Werth expected to go on DL

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson said OF Jayson Werth (hamstring) will probably have to go on the disabled list because he's still experiencing spasms in his hamstring. However, the move can be backdated to allow him to return sooner. OF Eury Perez or 2B Jeff Kobernus are options to be recalled if Werth is put on the DL.

Fantasy Tip: An illness and dehydration led to Werth's initial problems with hamstring spasms, and they haven't gone away. The good news is that he probably won't need to miss the full two weeks for his DL stint. Tyler Moore was seeing the most playing time in the outfield as a result of Werth's absence, and Roger Bernadina saw an occasional start, too. Moore should be your first target in deep mixed leagues, but it'll likely be a short-lived hike in PT.
