Didn't look good.

Michael Scott: It didn't come out organically.

Nats Werth-less for three months: Washington manager Davey Johnson said outfielder Jayson Werth will be sidelined for "a few months" after he broke his left wrist Sunday night while trying to make a sliding catch in a loss to Philadelphia. "It's a clean break," Johnson said after the game. "He's going to be out for a while." According to MLB.com, Werth had surgery on his wrist Monday and is expected to miss three months. Werth was injured when his glove got caught underneath him and his wrist bent backward as he tried to grab Placido Polanco's sinking liner. Werth stayed on the ground briefly, in obvious pain, before throwing the ball back to the infield. The Nationals are expected to utilize a platoon consisting mainly of Roger Bernadina and Xavier Nady in right field during Werth's absence.

Sucky. Pretty sure this means Harper isn't going down as long as he doesn't go 7-92 over a month tho :-?

Whats the latest? 6-8 weeks? He was just dropped in my league and I thinking about picking him up and stashing him on my DL spot for later in the year.

May 9 RF Jayson Werth is expected to be out 10-12 weeks after surgery on his left wrist, which he fractured in Sunday's loss to the Phillies. The Nationals placed him on the disabled list and said again they'll move LF/RF Bryce Harper over to right field -- he can play all three positions -- and go with a left field by committee, led by Xavier Nady and Roger Bernadina, among others.
