It would be awesome if this guy emerges as a building block for the future and possible 2B of the future once House takes over 3B.  We need some of the prospects besides “The Big 3” to become solid big leaguers.

On NatsChat they mentioned the last non-first round draft pick to produce more than 2 WAR for the Nats is MAT drafted all the way back in 2009.

If this guy becomes a passable full time starter, it’s one of the best Nats draft picks since….. Well, there is a reason multiple fire sells only got our farm system to average.

Lipscomb was perhaps the most unlikely 2024 Opening Day rookie. He spent most of 2023 at Double-A, where he performed slightly above the league average despite pretty terrible plate discipline. He swung at a 58% clip last year, which is very concerning, though he covers enough of the zone to have kept his strikeout rate down below 20%. At some point there is going to be a reckoning for all that chase and Lipscomb will have to make an adjustment. While his feel for oppo contact is aesthetically pleasing, it's tough to project enough offense here for him to profile at third base. He has fantastic range at third but his arm isn't great. Lipscomb one-hops a lot of throws and often takes an extra beat to get rid of the baseball, which you don't have the luxury of doing at the big league level. He played both middle infield positions during spring training and has a shot to develop into a viable second baseman. The rebuilding Nats have skipped Lipscomb over Triple-A, and there are going to be some early-career growing pains as he attempts to adjust to major league stuff. Eventually he could be a multi-positional utility guy, but the rate of chase here is concerning enough to round down a bit because it creates pretty serious bust risk.

well, technically he wasn't on the OD roster.

1-14 over his last four games.  MLB is not easy.

It's almost like MLB pitchers adjust.

and I'm good with that. I was on an island saying Alu should have been the call up rather than starting Lipscomb's service clock and potentially burning an option if he didn't pan out. That said, I have been impressed by his defense. If he doesn't show enough to displace Garcia by Spring 2027, then he's really not going to matter more than any other utility guy in the long term team.

Zuck reports that Senzel will be the everyday 3B when he returns from injury, possibly very soon. No word on what this means for Lipscomb but I'd imagine he goes back to Rochester so he can play everyday.

Just a ridiculously dumb franchise.

Lipscomb has the yips throwing from 3rd base. It was obvious after his throw to first today that Gallo saved him on.

you do wonder if the Gallo at 1st rather than in left has to do some with no other viable 1st baseman on the roster. Meneses pushing Winker to left and Gallo to 1st isn't viable. I guess Lipscomb goes down when Senzel is ready, but I'd like to see a Rosario release, Yepez recall, and Meneses to the minors move to try to get better D and a more righty hitting.
