Follow the Prospects: Drew Millas, C

Drew Millas, C, Washington Nationals
Level & Affiliate: High-A Wilmington Age: 23 Org Rank: 13 FV: 40+
Line: 3-for-5, K

Notes
Millas was acquired by the Nationals as the most noteworthy part of the prospect package exchanged for Yan Gomes and Josh Harrison. In his first game with his new club, the ultra-athletic catcher hit three singles, one of which drove in two of Wilmington’s 10 runs. Even with his strikeout in the fourth, Millas has walked more than he’s fanned this year, boasting a K-rate of just 15.1% while walking 14.8% of the time.

Millas, a switch-hitting catcher like Ruiz, has consistently produced for the high-Class A Wilmington Blue Rocks. But he entered the organization behind Ruiz, Adams and Tres Barrera and perhaps others in the pecking order. In Washington’s ideal world, Ruiz and Adams are their tandem for the next half decade. The Nationals also had been high on Israel Pineda, a 21-year-old from Venezuela, who has hit for some power this season but otherwise struggled. This organizational catching depth did not exist until the deadline fire sale.

Millas is who we call up when we move Ruiz to first base full time
