VIERA, Fla. -- Nationals right-hander Jayson Werth was scheduled to start his first game of the Spring against the Marlins on Sunday afternoon, but he was scratched because of a right biceps strain. He is listed as day to day and the injury is not considered serious.
"No worries, it just precautionary," Williams said.
Meanwhile, outfielder Bryce Harper had a scheduled day off against the Marlins, but he was sent home early because of flu-like symptoms.
"He had a stomach issue, so we got him out of here," Williams said. "We made sure it didn't spread. He didn't feel real good this morning. He came in with a bad stomach."
