I am now working on the New York Yankees Top 20 prospects list for 2017. The next team in line is the Washington Nationals, to be followed by the Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Rays, San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers, and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Use this thread to discuss the Washington Nationals organization. Some possible points for consideration and discussion include, but are certainly not limited to,
***The Nationals finished 95-67, first place in the National League Eastern Division. Do they get to 90 or more wins again in 2017? Are they the favorites in this division?
***Trea Turner hit .342/.370/.567 along with 33 steals in 307 at-bats. What's his slash line in 600 at-bats?
***What do you expect from Joe Ross in 2017 and beyond?
***Same question for Reynaldo Lopez and Lucas Giolito. Are either one of them untouchable as trade assets?
***With Turner graduated off rookie lists, the top position player prospect in the system is outfielder Victor Robles, who hit .280/.376/.423 with 37 steals in A-ball at age 19. How high should he rank on Top 100 MLB prospect lists? Top 40? Top 20? Or higher?
***As always, feel free to discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Nationals-oriented.
