Category archive: Injuries
Good grief! How many injuries can a team endure? Michael Morse (right lat), Drew Storen (right elbow), and Chien-Ming Wang (left hamstring) have been out all year. Ryan Zimmerman (right shoulder), Rick Ankiel (left quadriceps), and Adam LaRoche (right oblique) are back on the field, but Brad Lidge (hernia), Mark DeRosa (left oblique), and Jayson Werth (left wrist) are not. Werth will be out for months.
And now Wilson Ramos? I almost don’t want to hear the extent of his knee injury.
The Nationals are fortunate to have a terrific backup catcher in Jesus Flores, but my heart breaks for Ramos. After the kidnapping ordeal last fall, the last thing I want for him is time away from his teammates.
Get well soon, Wilson. We miss you already.

According to the Washington Post and others, Jayson Werth had surgery today on his broken left wrist. He’s likely to be out for months. Werth broke the wrist making a sliding catch in a game against the Phillies on Sunday, May 6.
This fangirl wishes Jayson a full and speedy recovery.

Boooo! I didn’t want to hear that Drew Storen needed surgery today to remove a bone chip from his right elbow. I wanted to hear that Storen was feeling better and getting ready to start a rehab assignment.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Drew.

Anthony Rendon badly sprained his left ankle yesterday while rounding 3rd base for the Class A Potomac Nationals.
Here’s hoping he recovers quickly. I’m looking forward to this kid’s speedy ascent to the big club.
