Injury Update

DC Sports Nexus ---- Thursday, July 19, 2012

Here's a quick injury update as major developments have happened with two injured Nats.

First, we have some exciting news to share with you, of the Jayson Werth variety.

If you listened to last nights MASN broadcast you might have caught FP talking about watching Jayson Werth participate in the pre-game batting practice.  That's right, the man with a broken wrist was taking live swings, and apparently hit a handful out of the park.

Werth is ahead of schedule right now and should begin rehab in Potomac on Friday.

Second, Drew Storen pitched in his 5th rehab game on July 17th.  He has been activated from the DL and replaces Rick Ankiel DFA on the roster.  T-clip gave up two homeruns last night on his way to a save, so maybe he is feeling some pressure knowing Storen is on his way to Washington.

It looks like both of these guys will be back on the field sooner, rather than later, and could have a major impact on the playoff race down the stretch.
