Jayson Werth cannot remember the first week after he broke his left wrist. All the post-surgery medication turned it into a haze, which made it easier to take than the months that followed. He sat in the Nationals dugout during home games or watched from home during road games… Richard Berger, the Mayo Clinic surgeon who both repaired Werth’s severe wrist injury early in his career and his broken wrist, told Werth his recovery would be mostly steady, with little rapid improvement, and then improve drastically and quickly at the end. Werth moved his hand in a straight line, then moved it straight up into the air to chart the expected course.
