The Washington Nationals have a diverse group of talents across the roster, so let’s build the ultimate player taking the traits of each Nationals star.
Spring training is ramping up for the Washington Nationals, and every general manager, scout, and fan is looking to find the next hidden gem on the roster. Which top prospect looks ready to make the major league leap? Who has come out of nowhere to wow his front office? Does anyone look like a potential All-Star?
Nothing is more important to a major league team than player development. Turning draft picks and international signees into big league talent takes time, money, patience, and a ridiculous amount of luck. The Nats have invested plenty of manpower into Victor Robles’ growth, and even though he looks promising, his success is no sure thing.
But what if the Nats could build the perfect player right now? What would he look like and what skills would he need?
I decided to create the ultimate Nationals player using the skills and characteristics from his hypothetical teammates. This way, we can build the perfect National without leaving the organizational confines of West Palm Beach, Fla. Also, luckily for us, Washington has more talented players than the average ball club, so we have plenty of options to choose from.
Let’s dive in!
