Help On The Way: Injury Report

DC Sports Nexus ---- Wednesday, July 11, 2012

With the league gearing back up for an exciting second half of baseball, lets take a look at some injured Nats who hope to make an impact.

Back Soon:
  • Xavier Nady: 15 day DL with wrist soreness.  Played in rehab game July 8.
    • With Nady returning decisions have to be made about Moore's,or possibly another bench player's, place on the team.
  • Drew Storen: 60 day DL with elbow bone chip.  Played in rehab game July 9.
    • What will happen to T-clip and Burnett in the pen?  Storen will most likely slide into the set-up roll.
  • Chad Tracy: 15 day DL with groin tear. Held out of rehab game July 7 with soreness. 
    • After undergoing surgery on May 28, soreness is expected.  Ahead of schedule to return.  
Back Later:

  • Chien-Ming Wang: 15 day DL with hip strain. Rehab game scheduled July 13.
    • Despite struggles, Nats need Wang and Lannan in top form with a Strasburg shutdown looming.
Back Eventually:
  • Jayson Werth: 60 day DL with broken wrist. Will start swing a bat again after All Star Break.
    • When Werth returns Davey will have to adjust how he uses guys like Lombardozzi.
