is that our top 5 pitching prospects? Rutledge, Cavalli, Henry, Adon, Cronin.  Pretty close, right? I guess Cate would be in there, and probably Lara ahead of Adon, and there's Romero, too, due to proximity to the majors.

A fair number of guys on that roster who haven't budged from high-A since 2019 (or in some cases, 2018).

My first thought was "impressive roster" then I wondered why a couple of those players are still there.

Rutledge and Adon got the first two starts, both were solid but not spectacular - 5IP/2ER for Adon, 4.2 / 2ER for Rutledge.

0-2 to start the year.

Virginia Tech alum Zach Brzykcy has opened up with 7 scoreless at Wilmington with 11Ks. 3H, 4BB.  The Nats signed him as a NDFA last fall.

Likely to be some solid NDFA showing across the league this year given the short draft last year.  The Nats could have used that as a way to really fix the system by bringing in a raft of high-upside guys with issues (the $20k signing bonus cap meant cheap, but also lots of guys would just go back).  The Royals in particular did a good job there.  The Nats...eh, not so much.

Wilmington is now 9 - 9 after obliterating Aberdeen 15 - 5 on Sunday. Aberdeen is probably a Baltimore farm team. Cavalli pitched 6 innings, gave up 1 ER and had 7 K's and 2 walks. ERA now about 2.05. Antuna got a hit.

In a nod to Tony LaRussa, Wilmington added 5 runs in the top of the 9th.
