Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano was pulled from what started as a non-save situation by acting manager Randy Knorr, who was filling in for the ejected Davey Johnson. Soriano had already given up two runs and left two runners on base. RP Ian Krol blew the save, leaving Soriano charged with four earned runs allowed, but wound up with the win when the Nats won it in the ninth.
Fantasy Tip: The article mentions Knorr's disappointment that Soriano wasn't as intense during the non-save spot as he is during his opportunities to untuck. Whatever the fallout from this, it won't matter for Soriano's job security; it's merely a black eye on his ERA..

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.
