Jayson Werth Beset by More Wrist Action

Jayson Werth hits the Phillies DL with a bad wrist. This guy needs some bionic joints, fast.

PHILADELPHIA -- Outfielder Jayson Werth was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Philadelphia Phillies because of a sprained left wrist after Thursday night's win against the Cincinnati Reds.

The move was one of four by the Phillies, who begin a pivotal four-game series with the NL East-leading New York Mets on Friday.

Werth said he injured the wrist playing catch during the Phillies series in Cleveland from June 18-20. He said the injury had nothing to do with his previous wrist ailment that sidelined for most of the past two seasons.

Werth was hitting .235 with three homers and 10 RBIs in 85 at-bats.
