DC Sports Bog: Doug Fister tucked a Jayson Werth garden gnome into his shirt

The Nationals entered the bottom of the eighth inning Monday trailing the Diamondbacks, 3-2, but Doug Fister had a little magic up his sleeve. (Tucked into his shirt, really.) Denard Span doubled and scored on Anthony Rendon’s triple to tie the game. After Jayson Werth scored Rendon with a sacrifice fly to give the Nationals the lead, Fister was spotted in the Nationals dugout with a Jayson Werth garden gnome peeking out from the neck hole of his shirt. The power of the #RallyGnome is real. Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Jayson Werth returns to Nationals’ starting lineup

Jayson Werth’s shoulder was not 100 percent Sunday night when he returned to action for the first time in a week. The cumbersome-ly named right shoulder joint that kept him out of the Nationals’ lineup from Aug. 10-17 — the acromioclavicular (AC), if you must — still bothers him on his follow-through sometimes. He had to test the shoulder in the cage in Sunday’s late innings to confirm for himself and his manager that he could contribute.

Nats Journal: Jayson Werth plays for the first time in a week after resting shoulder

Jayson Werth swung in the indoor batting cages during Sunday’s game. For a week, his balky right shoulder — technically, an acromioclavicular (AC) joint sprain — prevented him from swinging. He did on Saturday and again the next day. Once the Nationals took a two-run lead in the seventh inning, Manager Matt Williams wasn’t going to insert Werth into the game and told him so.
