Bats: Switch Throws: Right

Yasel Eneudy Antuna (born October 26, 1999) is a Dominican professional baseball infielder for the Washington Nationals of Major League Baseball (MLB).

The Nationals signed Antuna to a minor league contract as an amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic on July 2, 2016. They gave Antuna a $3.9 million signing bonus, the largest they had ever awarded an international free agent by $2.4 million to that point.[4] Antuna was described by scouts at the time as a potential five-tool player who profiled as a future everyday shortstop in the major leagues.[5]

Antuna debuted professionally in the Gulf Coast League with the GCL Nationals in 2017, appearing in games at shortstop and third base. He played in both games of a double-header on July 23, 2017, in which the GCL Nationals no-hit the GCL Marlins in both seven-inning games, committing a throwing error in the second game that accounted for one of the Marlins' two baserunners in the contest.[6] Midseason rankings that month by MLB Pipeline ranked Antuna as the Nationals' eighth-best prospect.[7] Antuna finished his 2017 season with a .301 batting average in the Gulf Coast League, playing mostly shortstop with several appearances at third base as well.[8]

In August 2018, Antuna underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery.[9] Antuna appeared in three games for the GCL Nationals late in the 2019 season, after which Baseball America ranked him as the Nationals' ninth-best prospect.[10] Antuna was a non-roster invitee to the Nationals' 60-man player pool for the 2020 season, which was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.[11] After the season, the Nationals selected Antuna's contract, promoting him to the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.[12]

Bats: Left Throws: Right

Gage Parker Canning (born April 23, 1997) is an American professional baseball outfielder in the Washington Nationals organization.

Originally from Ramona, California, Canning attended Arizona State University and played college baseball for the Arizona State Sun Devils. As a junior, Canning led the NCAA in triples with 11.[19] He was drafted by the Nationals in the fifth round of the 2018 Major League Baseball draft and chose to turn pro.[20] He made his professional debut with the Auburn Doubledays of the New York–Penn League, the Nationals' Class A Short Season affiliate; in one of his first games with the Doubledays on June 22, 2018, he came a double shy of hitting for the cycle.[21] In July 2018, he was promoted to the Nationals' Class A Full Season affiliate, the Hagerstown Suns of the South Atlantic League.[22]

As an outfielder, Canning was ranked as the Nationals' thirteenth-best prospect in July 2018 by MLB Pipeline.[23]

Canning stands 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m), and while he bats from the left side, he throws right-handed.[24] After he was drafted by the Nationals, team scouting director Kris Kline compared him to Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton, describing him as a "classic over-achiever" and predicting he will play in the major leagues. Speed is a key part of his game.[25]

As a draft-eligible sophomore, Clay was selected of Georgia Tech by the Minnesota Twins in the fourth round of the 2014 MLB draft.[26] He pitched in the Twins' minor league system from 2014 to 2019. In 2020, he was a non-roster invitee to Minnesota's 60-man player pool, working out at the alternate training site at CHS Field in St. Paul.[27]

The Twins never added Clay to their major league roster, and he became a minor league free agent after the 2020 season. On November 18, 2020, the Washington Nationals announced they had signed Clay to a major league contract, adding him to a major league roster for the first time in his playing career.[28]

Clay is noted as an extreme groundball pitcher who rarely allows home runs. His pitching arsenal includes a sinking fastball and an above-average curveball.[29]

Bats: Right Throws: Right

Jacob N. Condra-Bogan (born August 30, 1994) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization.

After being adopted out of foster care at age 15 by the same family that had previously adopted his biological sister,[30] Condra-Bogan attended Wofford College and Georgia Southern University, where he pitched for the Wofford Terriers and Georgia Southern Eagles respectively. Drafted in the 32nd round of the 2017 Major League Baseball draft by the Toronto Blue Jays, he chose not to sign with Toronto and instead signed a contract to pitch for the Washington Wild Things in the independent Frontier League.[31] After posting a 1.17 ERA over 15 innings with the Wild Things, Condra-Bogan had his rights purchased by the Kansas City Royals shortly before the start of 2018 spring training.[30][31] With the Class-A Lexington Legends, a Kansas City affiliate, Condra-Bogan pitched to a 2.08 ERA over 16 appearances, all of them in relief, before earning a mid-season promotion to the High-A Wilmington Blue Rocks.[32]

On July 22, 2018, Condra-Bogan was traded from Kansas City to the Washington Nationals in exchange for major league outfielder Brian Goodwin.[32]

Condra-Bogan is known for a fastball that has hit 99 miles per hour (159 km/h) in relief outings. Royals assistant general manager J.J. Picollo noted in 2018 that he had the ability to repeat his delivery and the physical strength to consistently throw in the mid- to upper 90s without losing command of the strike zone.[30] The Kansas City Star reported that he continued taking online courses to earn his master's degree from Georgia Southern while playing minor league baseball in the Royals organization.[30]

Condra-Bogan was one of eleven Nationals prospects who played for the Surprise Saguaros in the Arizona Fall League following the 2019 season. He appeared in six games without allowing a run before being removed from the roster and replaced by Pearson McMahan.[33]

Aldrem Corredor[edit]

Aldrem Corredor
Washington Nationals
First baseman / Outfielder
Born: (1995-10-27) October 27, 1995 (age 25)
Miranda, Venezuela
Bats: Left Throws: Left

Aldrem Steven Corredor (born October 27, 1995) is a Venezuelan professional baseball first baseman and outfielder in the Washington Nationals organization.

Corredor agreed to a minor league contract with the Nationals in August 2012 as an international free agent out of Venezuela at the age of 16. Signed as an outfielder, he was described by the team as a player capable of handling both left and right field.[34] During his first four seasons in the Nationals farm system, playing rookie ball with the Dominican Summer League Nationals and Gulf Coast League Nationals, Corredor also saw playing time at first base and in center field. During a June 25, 2013, game against the Dominican Summer League Brewers, from the sixth inning onward, Corredor shifted to third base—a very unusual position for a left-handed fielder to play[note 1]—after third baseman Neivy Pilier exited the game due to an injury. He converted his only chance during three innings as a left-handed third baseman, earning an assist and committing no errors.[35] From 2015 onward, Corredor began seeing more playing time at first base than in the outfield.[36]

Baseball America described Corredor as a "big-bodied" player at the time he was signed by the Nationals but noted he was in better shape heading into the 2013 season.[37] While The Washington Post characterized him in 2012 as a "power hitter",[38] Corredor hit just four home runs through his first four years in rookie ball, although since 2015, both his batting average and slugging percentage have trended markedly upward.[39] With the Class-A Hagerstown Suns of the South Atlantic League, he was named an SAL All-Star in 2017 and led the Northern Division in the June 20 All-Star Game by going 2-for-3 with two runs batted in.[40]

Armando Cruz (born January 16, 2004) is a Dominican professional baseball shortstop in the Washington Nationals organization.

Born and raised in Santo Domingo, Cruz emerged as a high-level baseball prospect by the time he was 14. He played in the 2018 14U Select Festival and a Perfect Game showcase the following year in Florida.[41]

Cruz was linked to the Washington Nationals as early as 2019, before he was eligible to sign with a Major League Baseball team.[42] The Nationals officially signed Cruz for a $3.9 million bonus on January 15, 2021, tying the franchise record for an international amateur free agent bonus (with Yasel Antuna),[43] one day before Cruz's 17th birthday.[44]

At the time Cruz turned pro, he was ranked as the fifth-best international amateur prospect by MLB Pipeline[45] and the second-best by Baseball America.[46] A contemporaneous Minor League Baseball news report described him as possibly the best defensive player available in the international signing period, as well as an above-average runner.[47]

After signing De La Rosa,[48] the Nationals sent him to their instructional league in West Palm Beach, Florida, that fall.[49]

De La Rosa ranked as the Nationals' twelfth-best prospect entering the 2019 season, according to MLB Pipeline.[50] Baseball America praised his "promising tools" and ability to make contact at the plate without swinging out of the strike zone.[49] Mark Scialabba, the Nationals' player development director, named De La Rosa as one of his breakout candidates in 2019.[51]

As a freshman at Florida in 2017, Dyson went 4–0 with a 3.23 ERA in 39 innings.[59] Dyson started Game 3 of the Gainesville Super Regional of the 2017 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament against Wake Forest and struck out seven batters over five innings,[60] clinching a trip to the College World Series. He also started the clinching game of the CWS against LSU, which Florida eventually won.[61] That summer, he played in the Northwoods League where he posted a 1.59 ERA over ​28 13 innings.[62] In 2018, as a sophomore, Dyson appeared in 14 games (11 starts) in which he pitched to a 5–3 record with a 4.47 ERA.[63] Following the season, he played for the Falmouth Commodores of the Cape Cod Baseball League, compiling a 2.37 ERA in 19 innings.[64] Prior to the 2019 season, Dyson was named to the Golden Spikes Award watch list[65] along with being named a Baseball America preseason All-American.[66] For the season, he appeared in 11 games (nine starts), pitching to a 3–2 record with a 4.95 ERA.[67]

As an international amateur free agent, Fuentes signed with Washington for a $35,000 bonus in 2013.[70] Fuentes progressed to full-season ball in 2017, which he divided between the Class-A Hagerstown Suns and Class-A Advanced Potomac Nationals, pitching both in relief and as a starter. He was one of the pitchers selected to pitch to Nationals superstar outfielder Bryce Harper as he rehabbed at the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in September 2017 after a knee injury.[71] In 2018, Fuentes spent most of the season with Potomac, where he started in 2019[72] before being promoted to Class-AA Harrisburg. With the Senators, Fuentes was converted from a regular relief role into a starting pitcher.[73]

Fuentes was suspended for 50 games for a positive heptaminol test on August 7, 2019, effectively ending his breakout season early.[74] He was an invited member of the Nationals' 60-man player pool during the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season, which he spent at the alternate training site in Fredericksburg, Virginia. After the 2020 season, the Nationals selected his contract, adding him to their 40-man roster.[75]

A groundball pitcher, Fuentes employs a crossfire delivery to add deception to his pitches, running his sinking fastball in the low to mid-90s and complementing it with a slider and changeup.[70][76]

In 2013, he played collegiate summer baseball with the Hyannis Harbor Hawks of the Cape Cod Baseball League.[81] The Los Angeles Dodgers drafted him in the 23rd round of the 2015 Major League Baseball draft as a pitcher, and he chose to sign with the organization. Despite a difficult first professional season with the Ogden Raptors of the Pioneer League, in which he posted an 8.38 ERA over 29 innings, Istler was selected to participate in the Dodgers' "DriveLine" conditioning program, where he used a weighted ball and increased his fastball velocity from the high-80s mph range up to the mid-90s.[82] Istler participated in major league spring training camp in 2017[83] and again in 2018.[84] After posting a 2.37 ERA across ​79 13 innings between the Class-A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, the Class-AA Tulsa Drillers, and the Class-AAA Oklahoma City Dodgers, Istler was traded to the Washington Nationals on August 31, 2018, for major league pitcher Ryan Madson.[85]

After signing, Klobosits began his professional career with the GCL Nationals. He was promoted to the Auburn Doubledays in July and then to the Hagerstown Suns in August.[91] In 30.2 relief innings pitched between the three clubs, he was 1–0 with a 1.47 ERA and 1.01 WHIP.[92]

With an imposing physical profile at 6 ft 7 in (2 m) and 270 pounds (120 kg),[91] Klobosits was described in 2017 by Baseball America's Carlos Collazo as having "excellent plane" and a potent mid-90s fastball.[93] He was one of several pitching prospects the Nationals brought up for a simulated game to prepare their major league hitters for the 2017 National League Division Series.[94] Klobosits underwent Tommy John surgery in May 2018 after posting eleven appearances out of the bullpen for the Potomac Nationals.[95]

A preseason prospect ranking by MLB Pipeline in 2018 listed Klobosits as the Nationals' eighteenth-best prospect, citing his "ability to dominate hitters with his blend of size, stuff and deception".[96]

Cartagena, Colombia
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Jhon Jairo Romero (born January 17, 1995) is a Colombian professional baseball pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization.

As a boy, Romero played catcher, but he began finding success as a pitcher as he matured. Older than most international amateurs when he joined a professional baseball organization, Romero was 20 years old when the Chicago Cubs signed him out of Colombia in 2015 and assigned him to their Dominican Summer League affiliate. At the time, Cubs scout Manuel Esquivia said the organization envisioned him as a possible future closer, as he touched 94 miles per hour (151 km/h) in his tryout with the Chicago organization.[129]

After spending two seasons in the Dominican Summer League, Romero was assigned to the Cubs' stateside affiliates in the 2017 season and shot through the low minors, rising from the Arizona League Cubs to the short-season Eugene Emeralds of the Northwest League before finishing out the season with the South Bend Cubs of the Midwest League. He led Cubs relief prospects with a 0.86 ERA[130] and led all minor league pitchers who pitched at least 25 innings with a 0.62 WHIP that year, across the three levels.[131]

Promoted to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans in the Advanced-A Carolina League to begin the 2018 season, Romero posted a 3.27 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 32 appearances through July.[132] Hours before the Major League Baseball trade deadline on July 31, 2018, the Cubs traded Romero to the Washington Nationals for Brandon Kintzler.[133]

Karlo Domingo Seijas (born September 6, 2000) is a Venezuelan professional baseball pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization.

Ranked #48 on Baseball America's list of amateur international free agents for the 2017 signing period, Seijas was signed by the Nationals with a $300,000 bonus on July 2, 2017.[134] A right-handed pitcher, by the age of 16, Seijas reportedly sat around 92 miles per hour (148 km/h) with his fastball. He drew comparisons from scouts to countrymen Félix Hernández[135] and Carlos Zambrano. He started his baseball career at the AQAgency Academy in Maracay, near his hometown of San Mateo, Aragua, and reportedly began playing baseball at age 3.[136]

Seijas made his professional debut for the Dominican Summer League Nationals on June 6, 2018.[137]

Born: (1996-06-03) June 3, 1996 (age 24)
Ruskin, Florida
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Jackson Tetreault (born June 3, 1996) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization.

A native of Ruskin, Florida, Tetreault attended Earl J. Lennard High School. His father, Curt Tetreault, was one of his baseball coaches, as well as a local tennis pro; he taught his son how to incorporate some of the mechanics of a tennis serve into his pitching windup, delivery, and followthrough.[138] After high school, Tetreault pitched one season for Cameron University in Oklahoma before transferring back to the Tampa Bay Area to attend and play baseball at State College of Florida, Manatee–Sarasota.[138] The Nationals drafted him in the seventh round of the 2017 Major League Baseball draft[139] and signed him for a reported $300,000 bonus.[138]

After pitching for the Gulf Coast League Nationals and Auburn Doubledays, short-season teams, during his first taste of professional baseball in 2017,[140] Tetreault advanced to full-season ball by the 2018 season, which he split between the Class-A Hagerstown Suns and Class-A Advanced Potomac Nationals.[139] During the offseason, he lived in West Palm Beach, across the Florida peninsula from his hometown, to work out at the Nationals' spring training complex and prepare for the next season.[138] Before the 2019 season, MLB Pipeline ranked him as the Nationals' 27th-best prospect.[141] In late April 2019, the 22-year-old Tetreault was promoted to the Class-AA Harrisburg Senators for the first time.[142][143]

Tetreault stands 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 m) and has a lanky build. He throws a fastball in the low to mid-90s, a cutter, a curveball, and a changeup.[139]

Rodney Theophile[edit]

Born: (1999-09-16) September 16, 1999 (age 21)
Pearl Lagoon, Nicaragua
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Rodney Darien Theophile Cuthbert (born September 16, 1999) is a Nicaraguan professional baseball pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization.

Theophile grew up on the Mosquito Coast of Nicaragua, in the town of Pearl Lagoon.[144] He began playing baseball at age 12. Originally a first baseman, Theophile was discovered by professional baseball scout Alex Mongrío, who recognized his potential as a pitcher.[145] In 2015, Theophile traveled to the Dominican Republic to train at the MVP Rivera Sport Academy. He participated in an international showcase for Major League Baseball organizations in early 2016 in the Dominican Republic—the only Nicaraguan prospect at that showcase, El Nuevo Diario reported at the time.[146] While training in the Dominican Republic, Theophile sharpened his curveball and improved the velocity of his fastball to top out above 90 miles per hour (140 km/h).[144][145]

The San Francisco Giants expressed interest in Theophile, reportedly signing him as an international amateur free agent in 2017, shortly after Theophile's 18th birthday.[144] However, the deal was never finalized and ultimately fell through.[147] Theophile, an admirer of Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer, subsequently signed with Washington for a $20,000 bonus.[145] He made his professional debut with the Nationals' Gulf Coast League affiliate in July 2018.

At the time he signed with the Nationals, Theophile was listed at 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 m) and topped out at a reported 94 miles per hour (151 km/h) on his fastball, with a Nationals scout telling La Prensa he expected Theophile to further increase his velocity during the course of his development.[145]

Theophile is a cousin of Kansas City Royals infielder Cheslor Cuthbert on his mother's side.[148] His parents separated when he was 8 years old. His father instilled in him an interest in baseball, taking him to games when he was a boy, while his mother, a former member of the Nicaragua women's national basketball team, preferred that he take up basketball instead.[148] Theophile's father died of a heart attack in 2016, at age 39, while Theophile was abroad for training in Panama and the Dominican Republic.[145][148]

Trey Turner[edit]

Washington Nationals
Relief pitcher
Born: (1996-06-15) June 15, 1996 (age 24)
Fort Scott, Kansas
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Trey Eugene Daniel Turner (born June 15, 1996) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Washington Nationals organization. He was drafted in the 10th round of the 2017 Major League Baseball draft by the Nationals.[149]

Turner was a two-way player at Neosho High School, seeing time as an outfielder as well as a catcher while also pitching.[150] He went on to attend Crowder College, where he was a position player for the Crowder Roughriders, before attending Missouri State University.[151] He primarily worked out of the bullpen as a right-handed relief pitcher for the Missouri State Bears, racking up 22 strikeouts in ​13 13 innings with a 2.03 ERA and a 2–0 record in his junior year[152] before an injury ended his season in April 2017. Turner underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.[153] The Nationals, who drafted him in June, were known for their tendency to draft pitchers who needed to have or had already undergone Tommy John surgery, including 2012 draft first-round pick Lucas Giolito[154] and 2016 draft third-round pick Jesus Luzardo,[155] and the team's scouting director told The Washington Post that the organization would "rehab him the right way".[153] He returned to action for the 2018 season, making his professional debut with the Auburn Doubledays on June 16, one day after his 22nd birthday.[156]

Upon being drafted by the Nationals, Turner also attracted some tongue-in-cheek media attention due to the similarity of his name to Nationals shortstop Trea Turner, who finished second in the voting for 2016 National League Rookie of the Year. Both Turners pronounce their name the same way, with the only difference being in the spelling of the first name.[157]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The most recent left-handed third baseman in a Major League Baseball game, as of Corredor's brief appearance at the position, was Mario Valdez of the Chicago White Sox for one inning on July 2, 1997. He had no defensive chances in the inning. (See "Left-handers playing third base (and catcher, second, and shortstop)," Baseball-Reference.com, April 25, 2011.)
