Jayson Werth Watch: Wrist Surgery - Out at least 12 weeks

Jayson Werth broke his wrist pretty badly sliding while attempting to make a catch on Sunday Night Baseball.  He walked off the field holding the wrist and the replay did NOT look good for Werth owners.  Cameron Maybin (67% owned Yahoo) has been swinging the hottest bat over the past week going 7 for 17 with 5 runs scored, 2 doubles, 3 RBI, 6 BB and 5 SBs.  Alejandro De Aza is the best overall OF available at just 54% owned, he has been the 17th best OF all season long.  How do you plan on replacing Werth?
