Werth not taking slump's end for granted

Werth not taking slump's end for granted

CHICAGO -- Phillies outfieler Jayson Werth is safely removed from his two-week long slump -- but that doesn't mean he is in any rush to talk about it.

"That's one of those things, the more you talk about, the more pressure you get, and the bigger it becomes," Werth said. "So I'd rather not talk about it."

The fact of the matter is that Werth has been much better of late, batting .287 in the 29 games entering Friday since that frigid 3-for-41 spell.

In those 29 games, Werth hit three home runs and drove in 12 runs.
