Arizona Fall League: Breaking down Nationals Minor Leaguers

8 of 9

 Middle-Infielder Tony Renda: Renda has had great back-to-back seasons at the plate first for Hagerstown in 2013 and then Potomac in 2014. He has had an OPS over .750 in both of the last two seasons while bringing speed to the base paths recording at least three triples. He didn’t hit any long balls in 2014, but you can tell his game is hit singles and turn those into doubles with stolen bases.

He is the 17th best prospect in the Nationals chain according to, and could see a jump after a solid season in Double-A.

Renda has a small-frame at 5’8″ but continues to impress as states.

"Renda isn’t flashy in any phase of the game, but he gets praise for his makeup and work ethic, which helps his tools play up. As he continues to climb through the Minor Leagues, he’ll have to keep proving himself, something he’s been adept at doing so far."
