Jayson Werth LF/RF WAS 4 days ago

Werth (wrist) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.

As expected, Werth will need at least two weeks to recover, even after an MRI on Monday came back negative for fractures or ligament damage. He broke the same wrist in May 2012, and he's already missed two games because of the recent injury. Werth will be eligible to return from the disabled list May 31, leaving Michael Taylor, Tyler Moore and Clint Robinson to pick up his at-bats in the meantime.

Werth (wrist) will likely be placed on the disabled list, MASN Sports reports.

Although an MRI on Monday revealed no fracture or ligament damage, Werth is still expected to miss at least two weeks. He's had three surgeries on his left wrist throughout his career, notably breaking the wrist in May 2012. With the Nationals surprisingly calling up infielder Wilmer Difo on Tuesday, Werth's at-bats will likely go to Michael Taylor, Tyler Moore and Clint Robinson.

Werth's (wrist) MRI on Monday showed no fracture or ligament damage, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

That's great news for Werth and owners alike, as structural damage would likely lead to an extended absence. However, he's not out of the woods yet, as a stint on the disabled list may not be out of the question. It's unclear how long the issue will keep him out, but it's already cost him two contests.

Werth had an MRI on his ailing left wrist Monday, The Washington Post's James Wagner reports.

The hope right now is that Werth suffered only a bad bruise after being hit by a pitch Friday. Consider him highly questionable for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, with more information on the injury likely to be released sometime earlier in the day.

Werth (wrist) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports.

Werth wasn't expected to be in Sunday's lineup, as the team had planned to rest him for the remainder of the series after he was hit in the wrist with a pitch in Friday's contest. Consider the outfielder day-to-day leading up to Tuesday's matchup with the Yankees. Tyler Moore will take his spot in left field Sunday afternoon.

Werth's injured wrist is still swollen, and he's expected to miss the next two days as a result, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Werth exited Friday's game early after getting plunked in the wrist. The team fears the possibility that the issue could be similar to one in 2005 that cost him extended time, but that remains unclear at this time. Regardless, he's expected to rest for the next two games, giving him at least three days of rest with the off day Monday.

X-rays on Werth's wrist came back negative Friday night and he will be evaluated again Saturday, James Wagner of The Washington Post reports.

Tyler Moore replaced Werth upon his departure Friday night, and it's likely that Moore and Michael Taylor would see the bulk of the extra playing time in left field if Werth misses any additional time. For now, he's considered day-to-day.

Werth hit a three-run homer, drew a walk and scored two runs Wednesday in a win over Arizona.

After an injury-damaged start to the season, Werth has shown some improvement recently -- he's hit both of his homers within the last six games and has averaged a walk per game over the last five. It looks like he's starting to be a safer activation in fantasy lineups.
