As we start to turn the page to the upcoming offseason, we look at the 6 biggest questions the Washington Nationals will face.
I know we are all still basking in the glory of a World Series championship, but the baseball offseason doesn’t leave us much time to reflect. We press on and look at the biggest questions the Washington Nationals face entering the offseason.
To be honest, there really aren’t a ton of question marks for the Washington Nationals going into 2020.
All of them are 26 or young with at least three years of control left. With that core, the Nationals aren’t going anywhere for a while.
The biggest question going forward will be in the starting rotation, which might come as a surprise considering the Nationals have one of the best starting rotations in baseball.
However, their top four starting pitchers going into 2020 (assuming Stephen Strasburg comes back) will play most of next year at 30 or older.
And there aren’t any top-level pitching prospects currently in the minor league system.
Maybe the biggest question for the future of the Nationals is what do they do once the Strasburgs and Max Scherzers of the world have declined or moved on?
But we’ll table that discussion for another time and just focus on the six biggest questions that the Nationals face going into this offseason.
