Washington Nationals Starting Lineup 12/10/18 Nationals Lineup

82-80, 2nd in NL East

green-check Confirmed Conf

WSH 0 @ COL 12

Final

Updated:

Washington is a heavy left-handed lineup, and things usually start with Bryce Harper. He is a big lefty power bat in the middle of this lineup, but it does not stop there. Juan Soto is a 19-year-old prospect who has some big numbers against lefties and righties so far in his career. Soto is now jumping a lot of prospect rankings at his age and is looking like the bat that could replace Harper if he decides to sign elsewhere in free agency. When Adam Eaton is healthy he will tend to leadoff, although Trea Turner will move up there at times. Eaton’s health has been an issue, but has been everything that Washington wanted when they traded for him in Chicago.

Notes

If a lefty is on the mound, Michael Taylor might slip into the lineup being a right-handed lineup. Turner is one of the games young stars, and will float around this lineup. His power and speed makes him an upside option anytime he finds his way into the lineup. Wilmer Difo has gotten more time this season mainly due to the Howie Kendrick and Daniel Murphy injuries. When those guys are healthy, Difo becomes a bench role player who comes in and out of the lineup. Anthony Rendon is a power third base option hitting in the top of the order, and Washington needs him to break up the plural of lefties. Murphy is back in the lineup after missing the first few months, but has yet to show any real signs of life. Matt Adams, Ryan Zimmerman, and Mark Reynolds provide a lot of depth and can platoon against lefties and righties. Adams has massive power from the left side, and Reynolds does the same from the left side. With Zimmerman’s injury issues, depth is key here.
