It appears that Jayson Werth's time in our nation's capital is all but over.
According to the Washington Post's Jorge Castillo, the Nationals are unlikely to sign the veteran outfielder, "barring an unexpected development."
This is hardly a surprise, as Werth has been an ineffective player the past three seasons. In 2017, Werth played just 70 games and hit a career low .226.
Even though he struggled on the field, Werth was incredibly popular off of it, and was known for his swagger and genuine attitude that he brought to every game.
Despite a bad season, Werth could still catch on as a fourth outfielder or a designated hitter for an American League team.
But at 38, teams could decide he may be too old to be a good contributor. It's too early too tell whether we've seen the last of Jayson Werth.
