Jayson Werth

Jayson Werth

The national have agreed to contract terms with free-agent outfielder Jayson Werth, who will be getting a seven-year deal worth, in the region of $126 million. The Nationals came into money after releasing free agent Adam Dunn to the Chicago White Sox. Werth is lined up to replace Dunn's bat in the centre of the Nat's lineup.

The move means that Werth will most likely play right field and protect Ryan Zimmerman in the lineup. Werth's departure creates a hole in the Phillies' lineup. Werth had an .889 on-base-plus-slugging percentage the past three seasons, which ranked 10th in the Majors for right-handed hitters and fifth among right-handed-hitting outfielders. His 87 home runs ranked eighth among right-handed hitters and second to Milwaukee's Ryan Braun (94) among right-handed-hitting outfielders. Werth also stole 53 bases and played strong defense over those three years.

So an exciting prospect for The Nationals who will be hoping Jayson Werth is able to find some great form for them and lead them into trophy success.
