RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After barely playing in his pro debut due to an ankle injury, Rendon tore apart the AFL and cleared up any confusion over who the best position prospect in the Nationals' system was. There is no clear room for him in the majors in the immediate future and for that matter there is still some question over whether his eventual defensive home will be third base, second base or somewhere else, so look for the team to give him a full season at Triple-A unless an injury opens up a spot for him in 2013.

2012

Rendon was the Nationals' top draft choice in 2011 as the sixth pick overall. Coming into the draft he was at the top of many boards, but he fell because of concerns about his ankle and shoulder. Rendon is considered an above average defender at third base with a plus-arm when healthy. He has a terrific batting eye, leading the nation in walks at Rice, and he should be a good on-base threat and power hitter if he can stay healthy. Rendon could be in the majors by 2013 if he can fully recover from his injuries.
