Washington Nationals: Top prospects report

The Nationals traded a lot of their prospect depth in the past year, including three of their top 10 prospects in the deal for Adam Eaton (and Eaton’s incredible contract), which left them with only one player on the top 100 and just two others worth consideration. The system isn’t deep as a consequence of trades, years of low draft picks and a few years without any first-round pick at all, but that’s unsurprising for a club that has been in contention for about five seasons and remains one of the best teams on paper going into 2017.
