Werth missed some time last August for the problem and it has not improved. This puts doubt on his availability for the start of the 2015 season. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Nats should pursue Ben Zobrist who could fill in for him and then slide over to second base upon Werth's return. Absent that, Michael Taylor will fill in until he gets back to the diamond. Fantasy players should cast frequent glances at the news as to how his rehab is progressing before drafting him with high hopes.
