For Werth, 'whole thing kind of hangs' on deal's final year

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Bryce Harper had not yet turned 10 when Jayson Werth made his major league debut, batting ninth and getting a pair of hits.

A decade and a half later, the 37-year-old Werth and 24-year-old Harper are fellow outfielders and clubhouse neighbors at spring training with the Washington Nationals. On Monday, the duo chatted while stretching, then warmed up by playing catch at the start of the team's workout.

In many ways, the history of the Nationals can be split into two segments. There was "Before Werth," including the consecutive 100-loss seasons that gave the club the No. 1 overall draft picks that landed Stephen Strasburg and Harper. And there has been "During Werth," including the trio of NL East titles in 2012, 2014 and 2016, all of which came since he signed a $126 million, seven-year contract that stunned the baseball world when it was announced.
