Jayson Werth named National League Player of the Month for July

|

Washington Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth was named National League Player of the Month for July. Major League Baseball made the announcement this afternoon.

  Werth hit .337 (28-for-83) in July with 11 doubles, six home runs, 24 RBI, 17 runs scored and 14 walks to earn the second monthly citation of his 13-year Major League career. Coincidentally, Werth earned the first Player of the Month award of his career in July of 2013 (.367 average, seven home runs, 22 RBI).

  This July, the 35-year-old Werth led the National League in doubles, RBI, extra-base hits (17) and game-winning RBI (6). Werth also ranked among the National League's best in slugging percentage (second, .687), on-base percentage (third, .446) and batting average (fifth).

  In July, 2013, Werth became the first Nationals position player to be named NL Player of the Month since the club's DC arrival in 2005. He remains the only position player to have earned the award.

  Pitchers Chad Cordero (June, 2005), Stephen Strasburg (April, 2012), Gio Gonzalez (May, 2012) and Jordan Zimmermann (July, 2012) have all nabbed National League Pitcher of the Month honors in years past.
