WASHINGTON -- Washington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper was out of the lineup Saturday for a second consecutive game after having an ingrown toenail removed, while right fielder Jayson Werth went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Wholesale MLB Jerseys . As expected, Werths roster spot was taken by outfielder Eury Perez, who was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse before Washington hosted the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Harper had a procedure on his big toe Friday and sat out that nights game; he tweeted a photo of his bloody toe and a piece of nail that was pulled from it. Nationals manager Davey Johnson originally said he expected Harper back in the lineup Saturday, but the toe was still tender. Tyler Moore started in left field Saturday, with Roger Bernadina in right. Werths stint on the DL is retroactive to May 3. He is batting .260 with four homers and 10 RBIs this season. The team had hoped to avoid sidelining Werth for 15 days, but his troublesome hamstring didnt heal right away. "Its a mysterious thing thats going on. I dont know. I mean, our trainer doesnt know. Our doctors -- Im not sure they know, either," Johnson said. After Friday nights 7-3 victory over Chicago, Werth said: "Its one of those things I feel bad; the team has been playing with 24 guys for over a week now. We feel like were close and I feel like its really not that severe. But its one of those things you go out there with the way it is, and you might make it severe pretty quickly. Erring on the side of caution, but at the same time at this point I think its necessary (to go on the DL)." Perez was hitting .346 with seven steals and 17 runs in 23 games at Syracuse this season. Johnson was asked what Perezs role will be in Washington, and the manager replied: "I dont know what Im going to do. He just got here. Well see if he can hit major league pitching." Perez appeared in 13 games for Washington in 2012, going 1 for 5 at the plate. "I thought last year, at times, he felt out over his skis, and thats inexperience," Johnson said. "I think hes going to feel more comfortable being here." Cheap Chicago White Sox Jerseys .

Those arent Powerball numbers; theyre the win totals for the Panthers dating back to the 2012-13 season. Gerard Gallant has helped turn the Cats into winners again behind the stellar goaltending of Roberto Luongo, the ageless play of Jaromir Jagr, the stout defense of Aaron Ekblad and the youthful goal scoring of Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, and Jonathan Huberdeau.Whats goodWhat if I told you that you could see a team eclipse 100 points for the first time in franchise history at the NHLs cheapest average ticket price? Interested? We thought so. You can see the Panthers play for just $33 on average (including concessions and parking, the average game cost is still just $60), even with the team winning the Atlantic Division last season. Major reasons for Floridas speedy climb up our rankings were its No. 6 affordability and No. 3 bang for the buck rankings. Its cheaper to buy a Panthers ticket than it is to park at a Bruins game -- a team that Florida bettered by 10 points last season. Last season, the Panthers also introduced a holiday package that included two tickets to three games, two shirts, a puck, an on-ice photo opportunity and two theme park passes for just $99. And if you were expecting a fall off the ice, look no further than the teams acquisition of defenseman Keith Yandle (47 points last year with the Rangers) to see just how serious theyy are. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. Whats badIf there is a weak spot for the Panthers, its the arena they play in. BB&T Center is responsible for the teams lowest ranking at 53rd overall (though that does represent a 27-spot jump from last year). The building itself is not even 20 years old, but perhaps in comparison to the family-friendly atmosphere of Amalie Arena up I-75, the Miami arena doesnt hold up. It might be part of the reason that the Panthers still rank 24th in the NHL in attendance -- it was only two short years ago that they set a franchise record for fewest tickets sold (7,311). Its hard to get excited about the stadium experience when half of the seats are empty. Still, attendance is trending up -- a 33.5 percent increase since 2014-15 -- so dont be surprised to see another climb for the Sunrise rink.Whats newObviously, a lot changed for the team to jump 41 spots in just a year. Coaching climbed 39 spots in Gallants second season with the club, a pivotal reason for the sprint up the standings. In 2014, Floridas coaching rank was dead last at No. 122. Now it sits at 36th overall. The players also got a boost 38 spots to 27th overall. Luongos social media presence was bettered only by his on-ice play, and the youth movement on the Florida roster was stabilized by the legendary Jaromir Jagr -- lots of fan favorites on this team. The biggest jump? Ownership climbed 49 places to 25th overall, as Vincent Viola has been crucial to the teams success since buying the Panthers in 2013.Next: Dallas Stars?| Full rankings ' ' '
