Major League Baseball released its annual Top 100   list this past weekend, and three Nationals were recognized as part of that elite group of young up-and-comers.

Victor Robles leads the way among Nationals players with a No. 4 ranking. Robles, who saw action in 21 big league games last season, is expected by most fans to take on an everyday role in the outfield in 2019, especially if the team is not able to bring Bryce Harper back.

Robles hit .288, with 3 home runs and 10 RBIs in 59 at-bats in 2018.

Next on the list is middle infielder Carter Kieboom, ranked at No. 25. Kieboom, a right-handed hitting shortstop who can also play the second base, is expected to make a major league impact in the 2020 season.

Kieboom hit .280, with 16 home runs and 69 RBIs at the A and AA levels last season.

The Nationals rounded out their Top 100 prospects with Luis Garcia in the No. 75 position. Garcia, a left-handed hitting infielder, is expected to arrive in the big club in 2021.

Garcia hit .298, with seven home runs and 54 RBIs, all at A-level baseball.

The division rival Atlanta Braves lead the NL Eastand are second place across MLBwith eight players on the list. The Philadelphia Phillies have three players on the list, while the New York Mets have two and the Miami Marlins have one.

Other than the impact that a Harper signing could have in Robles’ everyday participation at the major league level, I don’t anticipate that any other free-agent signing could derail the timelines of these prospects.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a fan of baseball. One of my earliest memories is sitting with my dad in his bedroom, way past my bedtime, watching Pete Rose hit 4,192. He knew then that this was a big deal and wanted to make sure that I witness it. I was 6, and I was hooked. I was born in Caguas and raised in Cidra, Puerto Rico, where the only thing that matters more than baseball is winning baseball. I’m a digital journalism student at Penn State and call Northern Virginia home these days.
