Jayson Werth underwent surgery on his broken left wrist today. He will be out more than six weeks, perhaps 12, according to Nats reporter William Ladson.
If you remember, Werth broke his left wrist back in 2005. His recovery was so difficult at the time that he eventually started seeing a wizard. The injury was nearly career-threatening, and he was perhaps only saved by Pat Gillick, who signed him to the Phillies, where Werth grew out his hair, won a World Series, wore a fist and the rest is history and $126 million.
As someone who has had surgery on a broken wrist, I can tell you that the recovery time is much longer than even three months.
We wish JW a speedy return. For real.
Cue all deranged Nats fans, who will say that our Takeover group, seated over Werth's right shoulder, wished him harm.
