Jayson Werth sentenced to jail time for speeding

Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth has been sentenced to 10 days in jail for his reckless driving charge in Virginia.

The 35-year-old Werth was pulled over in July while going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone. Werth was given a 180 day sentence with 170 of the days suspended. He is expected to serve only five days of the sentence while also losing his license for six months.

Werth hit .292/.394/.455 with 16 hom runs, 37 doubles and 85 runs scored during 147 games this past season for the Nationals. He was 9-of-10 in stolen base attempts. His jail time will have no impact on him being ready for the start of spring training.
