Washington Nationals Top Eleven Prospects

by @ 6:50 pm. Filed under 2012 Nationals

Kevin Goldstein released his top eleven Nationals’ prospects and of course whenever you see one of these lists, you think Bryce Harper.  He should make his major league debut with the Nationals at some point in 2012 but I think he starts at Triple-A to start the season like Goldstein mentions.

Number two and another five star guy is the Nats 2011 first round pick, Anthony Rendon.  He’s a college guy so he could be on the fast track but he signed too late to play in 2011.  It looks like he could finish 2012 at the Double-A level which means a 2013 debut isn’t out of the question.

Matt Purke is third and he’s the top pitching prospect.  He was the Nationals third round pick in 2011 and he’s a lefty out of college as well.  The one downer is, he struggled in the Arizona Fall League.  Brian Goodwin (OF) and Alex Meyer (RHP) round out the top five.
