Matt Wieters has surgery on left hamstring

Matt Wieters had surgery to repair his left hamstring Thursday. The Nationals won't have a timeline on when Wieters will be able to return to the squad until he is able to get back to Washington and be examined by their medical staff.

Fantasy Impact

The injury is significant and the Nationals have said they're going to be looking for options at the catching position going forward. For now, Pedro Severino will be the every day guy behind the plate. Severino has a decent slash line of .274/.386/.356 over the last 25 games. If you need a catcher, he may be worth a pick up. It's a thin position and having a guy who will get the bulk of the playing time is always helpful.

Matt Wieters placed on 10-day disabled list

The Nationals placed Matt Wieters on the 10-day disabled list on Friday with a strained hamstring.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters' MRI is still being reviewed by team doctors and there's some concern that he may have injured his knee, too. Expect Pedro Severino to get the bulk of the playing time at catcher in Wieter's absence, which seems likely to last longer than the minimum 10 days.

Matt Wieters leaves Thursday's game with apparent leg injury

Matt Wieters was removed from the game Thursday against the Diamondbacks in the second inning with an apparent leg injury.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters singled but pulled up lame running to first base, called for a trainer, and immediately left the game. The nature of the injury was unclear, but it appeared to be serious, as Wieters could barely walk down the dugout steps. He was replaced by Pedro Severino, who would get the bulk of the playing time if Wieters is forced to miss time, which appears likely.

Matt Wieters reaches base three times against the Padres

Matt Wieters went 1-for-3 with two walks and an RBI in the Nationals' win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

The struggling catcher has a mediocre at best .217/.338/.327 slash line with just 13 hits and 7 RBI in 21 games this season. Thankfully, four of those hits have come from his last five games. Hopefully Wieters can put it together soon, but don't hold your breath.
