It has happened again in what can only be described as unbelievable for the Washington Nationals.

Jayson Werth will be added to the growing number of Nats who have become members of the disabled list in 2012, among other star players such as closer Drew Storen, Ryan Zimmerman and Michael Morse.

Amanda Comak reported that Werth will be out for a while with a broken wrist and is going to see a specialist on Monday, along with a surgeon.

Adam Kilgore reported that manger Davey Johnson has suggested that Werth will be out at least six weeks. 

ESPN's Buster Olney believes that the early estimation is 12 weeks, however: 

 

It is going to be a long period of time either way for the Nats.

Luckily for the Nationals, they are expecting Zimmerman to return Tuesday. It also helps that Bryce Harper is off to a fantastic start.

Nonetheless, this is a significant injury that is going to make the Nats' jobs harder going forward, as they look to make the playoffs this season.

Despite Werth's injury, Washington leads the division. The Nationals are hoping that when he returns, they are still atop the National League East.
