Werth has great baseball bloodlines. Grandfather Dick Schofield and uncle Dick Schofield Jr. both had long major league careers, and stepfather Dennis Werth is a former major league catcher. Werth reminds scouts of catcher-turned-outfielder Dale Murphy, from his squeaky-clean background and refreshing makeup to his size (6-foot-5, 195 pounds), athletic ability and wide range of tools. He's well-equipped to catch or play center field. He runs well and can swing the bat.
