Josh Palacios has been a nice find for us so far: .309   .415   .979 with 4 homers and 5 stolen bases so far playing CF at Rochester.
When the Cruz experiment ends, we have a few guys in the system I want to see in DC for some ABs.

Some non-prospect ML signings:
- Corey Abbot claimed from SF off of waivers, sent to Rochester - https://www.mlb.com/player/cory-abbott-676265
- Franklin Kilome signed to a minor league free agent deal, also heading to Rochester - https://www.mlb.com/player/franklyn-kilome-642584

Kilome was traded to the Mets most recently for Asdrubal Cabrera (in 2018)

A collection of injury updates from Zuck:
Quote
You’ll see each starting pitcher will be skipped throughout the season; usually at the 10-start mark we try to skip a start or push a start back,” Rizzo said. “That’s the situation with Cavalli, (Rodney) Theophile, (Cole) Irvin and those guys. They’ll get pushed back a start or two, just to give them a blow. No physical abnormalities there (with Cavalli). And with Cole Henry, because of his injury history, we’re being extremely careful with him. He’ll be no-throw for about a week, and then we’ll ramp him back up.”

* Top infield prospect Brady House, meanwhile, was placed on the minor league IL with back soreness. House, last year’s first round pick, hasn’t played for Single-A Fredericksburg since June 11.

Rizzo said the 19-year-old shortstop will be shut down for 7-10 days, “and then we’ll ramp him back up to playing again.”

Collection of updates on Blue Rocks

• The Nationals’ High-A Blue Rocks’ best hitter right now is probably Omar Meregildo, a thick-bodied first baseman who has some real power, but he’s repeating the level and is 24 years old, way too old for A-ball. Among their pitchers, Seth Shuman — part of the deal that sent Yan Gomes and Josh Harrison to Oakland last July — showed a fastball that missed a lot of bats up top of the zone even at 91-92, but his four walks in five innings were his highest single-game total of the year. He doesn’t have a plus pitch, so if his command is there, he could be a swingman. Reliever Jose Ferrer, a left-hander making his full-season debut this year, was 94-95, bumping 98 once, with a very hard slider at 86-91. He was erratic but didn’t allow a baserunner in two innings. Reliever prospects are imaginary creatures but he’s got a chance.

Meregildo was at high-A back when it was the P-Nats (2019).  I don't really get it.  He's a bat-only guy who is a good enough hitter to get a decent shot at AA and let him sink or swim.  Instead they gave him 5 games and punted him back to A+ as an org dude.

Some news from TalkNats:

Quote
Multiple sources on the Twitters are stating that Jeremy De La Rosa will be the first (age-appropriate-to-the-level) position player to be promoted this season. Dustin Saenz is also reported to be on the move to High-A, with Tim Cate making his way back to AA. Meanwhile, Brady House’s return, which had been scheduled for later this month, will likely be delayed until mid-August. House has reportedly been rehabbing a back injury in West Palm Beach, according to Joey LaMonaco of the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.

Some news from TalkNats:

For perspective, most organizations already did promotions several weeks ago - for example, just look at the minor league transactions page for June 28 (date picked at semi-random).  There are wave promotions from like 5 different organizations just on that day.

Emiliani looks like he had a short, nice stint his second time in rookie ball as a 19 year old in 2019, but really didn't show much last year.  Now he's a little old for his level.

Eric Longerhagen:
https://blogs.fangraphs.com/top-22-prospects-washington-nationals-2/
Per BA, he was signed 7/5/17.  No info on his bonus.  Columbian.

FWIW, he ranked #32 on this guy's top 50 in the Nats system going into 2021.  Fro perspective, he ranked between Noll at #31 and Read at #33.   That tier of players he viewed as "Tier 4: Players who have the potential of making the majors, or have a high likelihood of making the majors but providing minimal impact (e.g., middle reliever, low-ceiling UT guys)."
https://www.prospects1500.com/nl-east/nationals/washington-nationals-2021-top-50-prospects/
Looks like he has played mostly 1B with few games in left as an 18 year old.
https://www.thebaseballcube.com/page.asp?PT=player&ID=216254

Off of his transaction history, it looks like last year was mostly wasted due to injuries after a late start, maybe due to a "testing" issue - "ABS"?  Doesn't seem long enough for drugs, so I'm guessing that was COVID?

I thought him and the Nats came to an agreement? 6.5M signing just a tad over slot value?


EDIT: I don't think MLB updated the rankings with 2022 draftees.

Correct, Green signed.  I think our 20th pick was the only one not to sign.

I saw Francisco Perez pitch last night, relieving Cavalli for two innings. Seemed to overpower the Columbus Clippers: 2 innings, no hits, 4 K's, 0 runs.

Don't think we have anything on him as a prospect. He flopped earlier this season with the Nats, but doing well with the Redwings: 27 games, 29 innings, 21 hits, 43 strikeouts, 12 walks. He overwhelmed Columbus last night, looking better than Cavalli. Still only 24.

Fangraphs has him as our #24 prospect (before the trade) and rates him pretty favorably.

Fastball   Slider   Changeup   Command   FV
55 / 55   50 / 50   45 / 50   50 / 55   35+

I was expecting him to be part of our bullpen after we traded a bunch of our bullpen this deadline, but I guess that's not happening..

Wasn’t he already there for a few seasons with the Cards?  How did we get him?

Correct, he navigated into a storm though, splitting time as a starter and reliever, first year 2.73 ERA, last year 6.21. Maybe he found the fountain of youth in Rochester?
