Na­tion­als place Werth on 10-day dis­abled list

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Add Jayson Werth to the thin­ning of the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als’ out­field.

Werth was placed on the 10-day dis­abled list Mon­day be­cause of a left foot con­tu­sion. The 37-year-old out­fielder fouled a pitch off his toe in the ninth in­ning of Satur­day’s game against the Oak­land Ath­let­ics. The deflection has led to Werth be­ing shelved for the time be­ing. He is hit­ting .262 with a .367 on-base per­cent­age and .447 slug­ging per­cent­age in 47 games this sea­son.

Ryan Raburn, who was re­cently ac­quired in a mid-May trade, was called up to re­place Werth. Right-handed re­liever Rafael Martin was des­ig­nated for as­sign­ment in or­der to make room for Raburn on the 40-man roster. Raburn has spent parts of 11 sea­son in the ma­jor leagues as an util­ity out­fielder.
