Worth noting

• Right fielder Jayson Werth, who is on the disabled list because of a hamstring injury, will have a rehab assignment for Class A Advanced Potomac starting Tuesday and will get two at-bats. He will play another game Wednesday and play six innings. Werth will then head to San Diego to join the Nationals. Werth is expected to come off the disabled list on Saturday against the Padres.
