With the departure of several key veterans from last season, the future is now for the Nationals, who could see plenty of prospects make a significant impact in 2016. For the latest episode of 'Baseball in the District,' we focused on the farm system with two very special guests.
The first guest was Nationals assistant general manager Doug Harris. He took us through the Nationals' organization, telling us the next step in Lucas Giolito's development, the potential of Victor Robles and how the Nats are investing more in international talent.
Our second guest was Teddy Cahill of Baseball America. Cahill focuses on the Nats' farm system for BA and was excellent on their top prospects including where Trea Turner fits long-term on defense, how good Erick Fedde can be and which prospects are set to debut and contribute in 2016.
