The clear standout at Nationals camp is shortstop Brady House, whom Washington took with its first selection in 2021. House was extraordinary in his pro debut, putting forth a .978 OPS and four home runs in the Florida Complex League. House ranked No. 7 on the Baseball America 500 draft list and has the potential to be an offensive force, with respective future grades of 55 and 70 on his hit and power tools.
A handful of the Nats’ trade deadline acquisitions are here as well, including righthanders Gerardo Carrillo (Dodgers) and Aldo Ramirez (Red Sox), as well as catcher Drew Millas (Athletics) and infielder Jordy Barley (Padres). Big-armed righthander Andry Lara is one to watch in the pitching group, and it’s worth noting that Yasel Antuna is listed on this roster as an outfielder despite playing exclusively on the infield in his pro career.
