Getting some national recognition.

12. Rafael Bautista, cf, Nationals
Rafael Bautista
Team: low Class A Hagerstown (South Atlantic)
Age: 22
Why He’s Here: .440/.517/.536 (11-for-28), 11 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 RBIs, 6 BB, 3 SO, 6-of-7 SB

The Scoop: Forming a dynamic duo at Hangerstown with shortstop Wilmer Difo, Bautista has asserted himself as one of the minors’ most dangerous burglars of bases. With six more swipes this week, he’s up to 48 for the season in 54 attempts, to place him second in the minors. He’s a graceful outfielder with gliding strides in center field, and he’s held his own with the bat this year but needs to better adjust to breaking pitches.
