The initial evaluation of the MRI on Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth's (hamstring) right hamstring were "pretty negative," Manager Davey Johnson said before the game Thursday, May 9. It was an encouraging sign that the lingering tightness in the leg muscle isn't serious. Werth hasn't played in a week, since May 2, when he left after five innings when the hamstring tightened on him again after resting it for two games. Johnson suggested on Wednesday that Werth's recent bout with a stomach bug has deprived his body of fluids and the dehydration is the root of the continued muscle cramping.
