Washington Nationals Jayson Werth (shoulder, ankle) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 12. OF Michael Taylor is playing right field and batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Werth battled nagging shoulder and ankle injuries last week. The Nationals had an off-day Monday, Aug. 11, so this is a rare opportunity for manager Matt Williams to give Werth two off-days where Werth misses just a single game. Check back for updates on Werth's status.

The Oakland Athletics might be able to get something for OF Michael Taylor, who is out of minor league options, if he doesn't make the opening day roster. At this point, the A's likely have OF Sam Fuld ahead of Taylor. Fuld is hitting .304 with an OPS of .925 this spring.

Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams plans to use OF Nate McLouth in right field and the leadoff spot Friday, Feb. 28, in the first Grapefruit League spring game against the New York Mets with 2B Danny Espinosa in the two-hole. 3B Ryan Zimmerman will bat third, 1B Adam LaRoche will bat cleanup and SS Ian Desmond will bat fifth. C Wilson Ramos will bat sixth with OF Tyler Moore serving as the designated hitter, OF Scott Hairston batting eighth and playing left field, and OF Michael Taylor batting last and playing in center field.

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld profiles as the team's fourth or fifth outfielder, and manager Bob Melvin calls Fuld a "pest." The team already has four with OFs Yoenis Cespedes, Coco Crisp, Craig Gentry and Josh Reddick, and likely won't carry another if they want to keep six infielders and three catchers. If an injury opens up a spot, Fuld might be in a heated competition with fellow Stanford alum OF Michael Taylor, who is out of options.

Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) will play for Triple-A Sacramento Thursday, May 16, and is likely to come off the disabled list Friday, May 17. The team will decide to send C Luke Montz down or designate 1B Daric Barton for assignment to make room for Young on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor was sent down to the minors today, so Young figures to platoon in the outfield with Seth Smith, as he was doing before. Young has power, but he won't do you any favors in the batting average category. This makes him an asset in cavernous mixed formats with deep outfield setups.
