Impact: He missed a handful of games earlier this month with a balky shoulder, but appears to be healthy now.

News: Werth (shoulder) is batting third and playing right field Monday. Impact: He had missed five straight games prior to Sunday's pinch-hit appearance, where he went 1-for-1 with a walk and two runs in an 11-inning victory, but he is now healthy enough to start, and should once again be a staple in the middle of the order going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Werth (shoulder) made his return to the lineup a dramatic one on Sunday, drawing a walk as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning and scoring the tying run, then doubling in his second plate appearance and coming around to score the winning run in an 11-inning victory. Impact: It was his first action in a week. The fact that Werth stayed in the game in right field, and then was able to rip a line drive double into left field, bodes well for his ability to get back into the starting lineup in the very near future, possibly even Monday against the Diamondbacks.(RotoWire, )
