Jayson Werth out with a hamstring today

12 Comments

He has hamstrings even when he is playing, so saying someone is “out with a hamstring” is sort of misleading. I mean, if he didn’t have a hamstring it’d be even worse. Hamstring possession is irrelevant here, people.

Hamstring quality is another matter, however, and Jayson Werth is out of the Nationals’ lineup Thursday afternoon against the Marlin as a result of tightness in his. Werth is considered day-to-day. Matt den Dekker will start in left field and bat leadoff today.

Thoughts, prayers for Werth’s hammy.
