Jayson Werth Expected To Miss 12 Weeks With Broken Wrist

Washington Nationals right-fielder Jayson Werth will miss at least 12 weeks with a broken left wrist, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com.

 

The 32-year-old outfielder underwent surgery today to repair the wrist. While his initial diagnosis indicated that he would likely miss six weeks, latest reports have indicated that his time off the field could be twice as long. Werth has a history with problems in his left wrist from earlier in his career.

Werth broke the wrist last night when attempting to make a sliding catch in right field against the Philadelphia Phillies. When his glove made contact with the ground, the ball trickled out of his glove and he was in obvious pain. He was able to throw the ball back into the infield from his knees but collapsed and had to be helped off the field.

Werth was hitting .276/.372/.439 with three home runs and 12 RBI through the Nationals first 27 games.
