Jayson Werth set to begin rehab assignment


Jayson Werth is scheduled to begin a brief minor-league rehab assignment tonight at Single-A as he comes back from a hamstring injury.

Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that the current plan is for Werth to come off the disabled list Saturday, which would be the first day he’s eligible to do so.

Werth was off to a relatively slow start before the injury, hitting .260 with four homers and a .708 OPS in 27 games.
