Strides for Werth

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS - — James Wag­ner

Jayson Werth (wrist frac­tures) played light catch be­fore Fri­day’s game with his splint off and a glove on his left hand. He has even held a fungo bat but isn’t yet ready to swing, Wil­liams said.

“Good sign that he’s able to do that,” Wil­liams said. “They feel that the bones are healed enough to put a lit­tle pres­sure, which is part of the end of the re­hab process any­way. So he was fine com­ing out of that. He’ll do more of that, let the bone con­tinue to heal and go from there.” . . .

Tan­ner Roark made a brief ap­pear­ance at Na­tion­als Park on Satur­day. He landed on the three-day pa­ter­nity list on Fri­day.

The Na­tion­als an­nounced Satur­day that Roark’s wife, Amanda, gave birth to a girl, Kennedy Grey. To keep his arm ac­tive, Roark played catch be­fore Satur­day’s game with his hos­pi­tal wrist­band still on.
