Jayson Werth will miss tonight’s game — or at least he won’t be starting — after getting hit by an Aaron Heilman fastball in the left elbow last night in the nine inning. Werth remained in the game, but after getting treatment the Nationals held him out today. Laynce Nix is in right field, batting third.
