I have Jayson Werth on my keeper team, and it seems every opinion I read about the guy online--either here or on other websites--is down on the guy. Is there any reason to doubt him besides the health issue? He was a star prospect coming up, he went 20/20 last year even with missed time due to injury and platooning, and he's absolutely tearing things up in spring training this year.
The latest on him from TSN:March 18, 2009 - 7:08 p.m.
Jayson Werth delivered a three-run homer and a double as the Phillies and Blue Jays played to a 7-7 tie on Wednesday.
Fantasy spin: Werth is 10-for-28 with three homers and three doubles. Maybe the hot spring will convince the Phillies to hit him fifth and break up left-handed hitters Ryan Howard and Raul Ibanez. It'd be good for fantasy value, though the sixth spot isn't so bad in Philadelphia's lineup, either.http://fantasysource.sportingnews.com/b ... pe=updates
Am I the only person who thinks this guy-- 25/25 tools batting 5th or 6th in that lineup--is being underrated?
