Signs with Nationals
1BWashington Nationals  AAA
January 10, 2018
Fuenmayor agreed to a minor-league contract with Washington on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
ANALYSIS
Fuenmayor spent the 2017 season in the Mexican League following a pair of seasons at Triple-A for the Royals. The 28-year-old has never appeared in a major-league contest, but slashed .291/.325/.405 in 101 games with Triple-A Omaha in 2016. He will likely serve as organizational depth for the Nationals moving forward, and should begin the upcoming season back in the high minors.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
On a Double-A Northwest Arkansas team with well-known prospects like Raul Mondesi, Hunter Dozier and Jorge Bonifacio, Fuenmayor was the hitter who gave Texas League pitchers the most trouble. The 25-year-old first baseman hit 15 homers and slashed .354/.386/.591 in 73 games before receiving a well deserved promotion to Triple-A. He continued to produce at Omaha, but a knee injury put an end to his season in July. Perhaps the most interesting thing to note about the 6-foot-3, 230-pound slugger is that he was playing independent baseball in 2014 after washing out of the Blue Jays system. Fuenmayor did well to put his name back on the map as a noteworthy prospect heading into 2016, but his best shot at making it to the majors might be as an emergency injury replacement at first base or DH. As a journeyman he will need to make the most of every opportunity, as he won’t be afforded the same leeway that accompanies prospects with better pedigree.
