Rizzo reveals:

Quote
Elijah Green, the club’s first-round pick last summer, has not played since June 28 because of a left wrist sprain that had him in a splint for close to a week. Green, 19, is rehabbing in West Palm Beach, Fla., though Rizzo thinks he will rejoin low Class A Fredericksburg soon.

Green is this year's front-runner for the Brady House "MIA" award. Hasn't played in a month.

Placed on the 7-day IL. Maybe to make room for the draftees?

Not gonna lie, I've pretty much completely written Green off at this point. Hopefully he proves me wrong but in my mind he's essentially a lottery ticket and should not factor into any future plans for team construction (I still see some people including him as a potential starting outfielder for the Nats by 2026).

He's 19 years old in low-A. Way too soon to write him off, or label him as a future major-league all-star. He's a high ceiling prospect, same as he was the day we drafted him last year.

That is how any player below AA should be viewed.

I think his stock is significantly lower than when we first drafted him. As it is, should he make it, he would be the first player to ever go from a 40%+ K rate in the minors to a real contributor at the big league level. I'm not saying it can't happen, there's a first time for everything, but I don't see how you can't see the odds being strongly against him at this point.

It would be fun to see Green in the OF with Crews and Pinckney, playing behind Dugas and Armando Cruz or Marcus Brown.

Green is one of those guys whose development is hurt by the compression if the low levels. I'd expect him to stay in Low A/High A for a while

2-2, 2B, SB. I assume he's in Fredricksburg by the weekend as Crews and/or Pickney move up.

ended the day at 2-2, 2B, SB

These FCL games are something. Game was tied 6-6 at the end of 9. The Nats posted 8 runs in the top of the 10th. The Marlins responded with 5 of their own.

If nothing else, I would enjoy watching a Fred-Nats game in which Green, Crews, and Pinckney were the OF.

I listened to the FredNats game last night instead of the mlb team.  And will probably do the same today on my drive home.
