Player Notes
The first position player to make his MLB debut for the Nationals in 2016, and just the fourth Nat overall to debut this season, the former top prospect had been struggling to get his footing in recent years. After making it to Syracuse in 2014, he hit just .219 there with four homers and 32 RBIs and was sent back to Harrisburg (Double-A) where he spent all of 2015, hitting .226 with eight homers, 46 RBIs and 15 steals in 114 games. In 2016, though, he returned to Syracuse and his stats across the board reflect strong flashes of what made him a first-round pick to begin with.
