Here’s my last report update of the year on #Nationals Carter Kieboom, including Instructs+AFL looks. Think the sum-of-the-parts gives FV 60 upside at peak: playable glove at SS who can hit .275 with 20+ HRs. Top 30 prospect in baseball

60 is pretty darn high.  Does this guy give out 60s like candy?

Kieboom is in the Arizona Fall League all star game tonight.  8PM on MLB network.
Also pitcher Ben Braymer--don't see a thread on him.

Zuck notes Kieboom closed out the AFL  with a .295 batting average, .427 on-base percentage and 18 runs in 21 AFL games over the last month. He also drew 17 walks to lead the league."

They need to get him over to 2B ASAP.

He had a scary play yesterday in which he appeared to hurt his knee but was then ok. Saw Daniel Johnson hit an RBI single. Braves prospect damaged his ankle after walk off HR.

I assume the plan for Kieboom is to start him at 2b at Harrisburg and call him up as soon as he’s ready.

Or as soon as they realize Difo can’t cut it and Kendrick can no longer play 2B.

I'd assume he'll play some 2B, but from what I've seen of him, he looks like he can play a passable SS.  The usual approach with dudes like that is to have them keep playing both - the Dodgers are doing that with their version of Kieboom (same age, same round, same draft class, similar questions as to SS fit and position being blocked).   For example, Kieboom could well be the answer if Turner goes out for an extended period.  Having him play 2B every day makes that a lot harder.

He can play 3B when Rendon leaves after next year.

No. He should be great in Harrisburg this year. And maybe Fresno. Maybe if Dozier gets hurt you will see him in DC.

Or if Dozier doesn't improve on last year by the super 2 cutoff.

Or, you know, don't start his service time on a lost season?

FWIW, Kieboom was held out of his start at Fresno last night.

So not ready to replace our .412/.500/.912 hitting third baseman yet?
