Jayson Werth Injury: Nationals Outfielder Suffers Broken Left Wrist, According To Report

The worst news for Jayson Werth and his injured left wrist has been confirmed.

After leaving the game in the top of the sixth inning, reports began to surface after the Philles and Nats went final that Werth had indeed suffered a broken wrist. Kevin Jones of WUSA9 tweeted this:

Werth dove for a ball that was hit by Philadelphia's Placido Polanco and after making the catch, his left wrist turned and bent awkwardly underneath him. He was clearly unable to make the play and left the game immediately afterwards.

The timetable for how long he will be out is uncertain at this time, but the best guess is that Werth will be out for at least six weeks.
