Nationals | Jayson Werth has strained hammy

Updating a previous report, the Washington Nationals expect to place OF Jayson Werth (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 10, with a "very slight strain" of his left hamstring. His DL stint can be backdated since he hasn't played since May 2, meaning he'd be eligible to return May 18, and the team expects him to return at that point. Werth's MRI exam showed "a Grade 1-ish type of strain."

Fantasy Tip: If you already added Tyler Moore in deep mixed leagues due to Werth's absence, you can expect to ride his increased playing time for at least another week. After that, though, his value will likely be limited to NL-only leagues.
