After suffering a set back in recovery for his groin injury, Washington’s rookie outfielder Brian Goodwin is reportedly out for season. This speed bump is what led the team to call up highly anticipated prospect Victor Robles.

Washington’s outfield had been plagued with injury all season, from Adam Eaton to most recently Bryce Harper. Goodwin’s bat will be a loss to the lineup too, the 26-year old slashing .251/.313/.498 with 13 home runs. Robles will likely be Washington’s backup outfielder while the rest of their depth...well, recovers. While there’s a chance Goodwin could be healed for an NLDS run, it’s more likely that the Nationals use Robles in his place.
