Ten weeks and five days ago, Jayson Werth broke his left wrist attempting to make a diving catch against the Philadelphia Phillies.
On Saturday night in front of over 5,000 fans, he began his rehab assignment with the Potomac Nationals at Pfitzner Stadium.
Werth batted third in the lineup and started in right field. He played six innings, going 1-for-3 with an RBI and added a run by scoring from first on a double.
"I feel pretty good," said Werth, who got injured on May 6. "As long as [my wrist] doesn't hurt, I'm not going to hurt myself."
