Washington Nationals Players to Watch
RF Juan Soto
The by-far Nationals best player is Soto, a player who has destroyed Marlins pitching this season slashing .360/.484/.760 across seven games. The 22-year-old outfielder enters play Tuesday with a hit in six of his last eight games.
1B Josh Bell
The Nationals primary first baseman is enjoying a solid first season in Washington after being acquired from the Pirates in the offseason. Despite struggling for the month of August overall, Bell has collected a hit in six of his last seven games.
1B Ryan Zimmerman
Washington’s other first baseman is Zimmerman, who will most-likely get at-least one start during this three-game series. Currently in year 16 with the organization, Zimmerman has posted a .736 OPS with 11 home runs.
OF Yadiel Hernandez
One of the Nationals’ players who has benefitted most from the open playing time is Hernandez. The 33-year-old outfielder is currently slashing .333/.397/.550 with four home runs across his last 19 games.
RP Ryne Harper
Arguably the Nationals best reliever is Harper, a 32-year-old right-hander who is currently in year two with Washington. Across 25.1 innings pitched this season, Harper has posted a 1.78 ERA only allowing a total of five earned runs.
