Jayson Werth Injury: Weather Prevents First Rehab Start At Potomac

G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium, the home of the Class-A Potomac Nationals, is notorious for its poor drainage system, and with the rain on Friday, the MLB club may not want to risk putting Werth out there with the chance of getting injured again.

Werth has been out of the Nats lineup since May 6 when he broke his wrist while trying to make a sliding catch in right field. In 27 games in 2012, he is hitting .276 with 3 home runs and 12 RBIs.
