Yes. Not a SS in the majors, maybe, but a solid 2B. Let him have the full season in AAA, since the Nats have plenty of utility guys for 2B and 3B, and even an extra OF.

The firesale is on. Get something for Harrison. DFA Mercer, bring up Garcia to play 2B every day and Noll to be the utility guy.

Why do you think he can’t play SS in the majors. I thought previously folks said he would be the SS and Trea moved to 2B. Of course now Trea will probably be gone.

This is a little dated but his fielding and arm were rated higher than his bat.

I always thought it was going to be Garcia to SS and Turner to 2B or even CF, but with the way he is playing SS this year, Garcia can wait his turn while playing 2B as long as Trea is here, which is hopefully forever and ever.

He can absolutely play SS and he should spend every possible inning in the minors doing so

Last I looked, Arteaga was at SS and Garcia at 2B.

Cant fix the stupidity of the organization. Garcia needs every rep at SS to be ready when we trade Turner

He has played most of his games at SS. I wonder if the injury moved him to second

The Nats are going to move Harrison not Turner.
