Jayson Werth, Ryan Zimmerman ready to rejoin Nationals

1 Comment

Washington is starting to get healthy, with both left fielder Jayson Werth and first baseman Ryan Zimmerman expected to come off the disabled list and rejoin the Nationals’ lineup tonight against the Marlins.

Werth has been out since mid-May with a fractured wrist, while Zimmerman has been out since early June with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Their returns come just a few days after infielder Anthon Rendon came off the shelf.

Center fielder Denard Span and right-hander Stephen Strasburg remain on the ever-crowded Nationals disabled list, but Strasburg is slated to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Wednesday.

Nationals fans will cherish this moment for a long, long time: Daniel Hudson got Tommy Edman to fly out to Victor Robles in center field for the final out of NLCS Game 4, wrapping up a 7-4 victory and completing a series sweep. The Nationals earned entry into the World Series for the first time in franchise history.

Here’s a recap of the game if you’re into that kind of thing.

The Nationals will anxiously watch the conclusion of the ALCS, which the Astros currently lead two games to one after defeating the Yankees 4-1 on Tuesday.
