Washington Nationals Starting Lineup 10/19/21 Nationals Lineup

65-97, 5th in NL East

red-x Projected Proj

BOS 7 @ WSH 5

Final

Updated:

Washington sort of outplayed their projections to some extent. No one thought they would be an average team, but likewise, no one envisioned the run they got on heading to their World Series Title. Washington lost one of their most consistent and dependable hitters. That is always difficult to replace. There are a couple unknowns that are going to have to fill a void in offensive production.

How well these players mature will be critical. There are also a couple bats that the Nationals seem to be taking a chance on them returning to what has been spotty success. If Washington ends up having any major problem, it could be scoring runs. However, limiting the runs they give up should not be an issue. That should hold true at least through the first three slots in their projected rotation. After their key three starters, the Nationals could be putting a lot dependence on pitchers overachieving in back-to-back seasons.

Washington Nationals FAQ

After losing Anthony Rendon in free agency, the lineup isn't quite as potent as last season. They are going to rely a lot on getting stable production from names like Howie Kendrick and Starlin Castro. There are a lot of names that you have seen floating around the league over the last few seasons. Washington did add Eric Thames, which gives them a nice lefty power bat. Thames has found solid form over the last few seasons after spending some time playing ball in Korea. The Nationals also have a lot of young guys to keep an eye on. Of course, Juan Soto is the best player on the team here and is still very young. Carter Kieboom, Victor Robles, and Michael Taylor are all young names looking to make an impact.

Who Will DH For The Nationals?

At 37 years old, Howie Kendrick will have the luxury of being the DH in 2020. He had a very strong end of 2019 and has been a big piece of the lineup for Washington. This helps open up the infield for younger names.
