Alec Keller Seizes Double-A Opportunity

Nationals Prospect Report

Always up for a challenge, Alec Keller has made the most of his chances at Double-A Harrisburg.

The 25-year-old Princeton graduate took over the center field job after Andrew Stevenson was promoted to Triple-A Syracuse, and he has earned nearly everyday playing time in either center or right field by hitting .268/.320/.359 through 76 games.
