2017

The Nationals fell in love with Antuna over the summer, eventually giving the 16-year-old switch-hitter a $3.9 million signing bonus in July (the most they've ever given a teenage international), and it's easy to see why. He's a potential five-tool shortstop, and while his bat speed and quick-twitch athleticism may not be elite, he's got top-end speed and has shown more polish and power at the plate than one might expect from a teenage Dominican middle infielder. As with any prospect this far from the majors and with this much physical development ahead of him, his career could take a wide range of paths. Some scouts doubt his ability to stick at shortstop and see an eventual move to third base ahead as Antuna matures, while others aren't sure if he will be able to hit for average. There's no doubting his ceiling though, and if everything comes together for him, Antuna could be among the next generation of shortstops getting taken in the early rounds of fantasy drafts. Just don't expect that to happen until sometime next decade.
