True that "저" implies "over there", but if "That man works well." is not accepted as a legitimate translation, that is straining too hard to teach the "over there" nuance. My guess is that if you asked 100 Koreans also fluent in English to translate the sentence, less than 10 would insert "over there." Also, the alternative word is "그" rather than "거", and the explanation DL has given for '그" is only a partial one. It is often used when the object isn't even visible, or when referring to something or someone that has already come up in the convrsation.
