Anthony Rendon Promoted To AAA

Nationals top prospect 3B Anthony Rendon has been promoted to AAA Syracuse from AA Harrisburg, according to Geoff Morrow.

Rendon was ranked the Nationals’ best prospect this past offseason by Baseball America. He hit .240 in eight games this season with the Nationals while Ryan Zimmerman was on the DL.

As Adam Kilgore pondered, he could very well be playing some 2B, perhaps in order to take over for the struggling Danny Espinosa and Steve Lombardozzi if their offensive output does not turn around.
