Werth to the DL as Zimmerman is activated
The Washington Nationals are having a good-news/bad-news type of day. The bad news is that they obviously had to place Jayson “I hate all Philadelphia fans and will firebomb that city when my wrist is healthy” Werth on the disabled list. You’ll remember that he broke his same troublesome wrist on Sunday night against the Phillies.
Werth is likely to miss some 6-12 weeks (depending on which reports you believe), so whether he’s on the 15-day DL, 60-day DL, 135-week DL….it doesn’t matter. Cut him from your fantasy baseball team.
But, the Nationals do get some good news here. 3B Ryan Zimmerman will be activated off the DL, so his bat will be a welcomed addition.
We now wait to hear when Zimmerman will go back on the DL, which should be any time soon.
