Jayson Werth underwent left wrist surgery on Monday and is now expected to miss at least 12 weeks.
The Nationals initially guessed a six-week timetable for Werth after he suffered a broken left wrist on Sunday night. But the injury is actually much worse. It's a tough blow to the Nationals, who are currently in first place in the National League East. Tyler Moore seems likely to take on a more involved role. Oh, and in case this wasn't already established, Bryce Harper is here to stay.
