More from the 11/19/20 article on Nats position prospects.  Most are in low minors.

Jackson Cluff, the next player listed by Scialabba, is a similarly versatile shortstop who bats from the left side. Cluff, 23, was drafted by the Nationals out of Brigham Young in 2019.

Both Antuna and Cluff fit one of the Nationals’ organizational trends: They like to collect and develop shortstops who can later move around the infield. Trea Turner, for example, played some second and some center field before settling in as the franchise shortstop. Kieboom, another lifelong shortstop, is now getting his shot to stick at third. And García, who was MLB’s youngest player for part of the summer, was the everyday second baseman after Starlin Castro broke his wrist. García, like Turner and Kieboom, is a true shortstop. Antuna and Cluff are, too, and yet that doesn’t mean they will always play there.
