Jayson Werth to have shoulder surgery tomorrow


Ken Rosenthal reports that Jayson Werth will undergo arthroscopic surgery on the AC joint of his right shoulder tomorrow. His rehab is expected to be two to three months.

Werth had a fine season last year, but he has battled shoulder issues for a good while. He battled shoulder soreness all last year in fact, missing games in August and getting cortisone shots and stuff. If he misses two months he’ll have a late start on spring training. If he misses three months he won’t being baseball activities until after the season starts. And that’s before remembering that he has to, you know, go to jail at some point.

Which makes one wonder if this means the Nats will look to make a trade or try to sign a stopgap corner outfielder.
