Washington Nationals Top 30
By Lacy Lusk
Will the defending champs have reinforcements arriving via the farm in 2020?
Carter Kieboom figures to be in Washington's big league plans next season. Beyond that, the system is relatively thin, relying on a pair of middle infielders at the top to carry a group comprised of many players with a long road to D.C.
Here's how we project their lineup in 2023, with their 2023 age in parentheses.
Catcher: Tres Barrera (29)
First Base: Drew Mendoza (25)
Second Base: Luis Garcia (23)
Third Base: Carter Kieboom (25)
Shortstop: Trea Turner (30)
Left Field: Juan Soto (24)
Center Field: Victor Robles (26)
Right Field: Adam Eaton (34)
