Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth has two small fractures in his left wrist according to MLB.com.
Insight: This is surprising because Werth had an MRI about 10 days ago that said he didn't have a fracture. But a CT scan taken Thursday showed Werth has two small fractures, which he suffered when he took a pitch in the wrist. This is not good as Werth has been plagued with wrist problems much of his career. He won't be back until August.
