Player Notes
Read posted career highs in home runs, RBIs, doubles and hits in 2017, earning Eastern League All-Star honors during the mid-season tilt. He combines a solid arm with some power potential and a bat that is certainly not a liability. In 2016 at Potomac (High A) he earned MiLB.com Nationals organization All-Star honors, hitting .262 in 101 games with nine home runs and 51 RBIs, both personal bests at that point but eclipsed by his Harrisburg stats this summer.
